Greetings EDGE Readers!

It's been Rush, Rush, Rush around here since our last program, so this is my first chance to blog about Linda's presentation, The Rays of Light on June 12. Thanks to all of you who attended. I've got your evaluation sheets and will be taking all of your suggestions to heart. If you didn't have a chance to fill out an evaluation, I welcome your input, you can email me at Ilona.Miklos@westlakelibrary.org, or drop off something in person at one of our public service desks. You don’t need to use the form, just write your thoughts down and turn them in. It will get to me.

Linda did a wonderful job, as usual, and we're very grateful that she agrees to come back periodically and take us ever a little further into the topic of Energy Healing. I'm a novice on the subject, so I appreciate her gentle guidance and I hope you do, too.

Remember, the library owns three copies of her new book, Rays of Light: listen to the dark, which, when not checked out, will be along with other new books in our Reading Room across from the Circulation Desk.

There are still some copies of the bibliography I prepared for the program in the plastic holders on the end cap near the books on philosophy, psychology, and religion. Ask a staff member where that is if you're unsure. They'll be there until they're gone.

I plan to do a display on channeled texts as soon as I get a chance, but that will probably not be until later this year, because now I'm moving on to the next big thing, our UFO program on August 6.

Keep your eye on the EDGE for updates on that.

Ohio Means Jobs

 

What would you do if you could see into the future? The Fixer by Gene Ducette.

Corrigan Bain is going insane...or is he? As a child, he dreamed of being a superhero. Most people never get to realize their childhood dreams, but Corrigan Bain has come close. He became a fixer. His self-appointed "job" is to prevent accidents. To see the future and "fix" things before people get hurt. But the ability to see into the future, however limited, isn't always so simple. Sometimes not everyone can be saved.

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

There is quite a lot of buzz surrounding this debut author’s work.  Perhaps it is the comparison to a cross between Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games (that’s not what it is, however).  Maybe it is the fact it has already been optioned for a movie produced and starring Emma Watson.  Or possibly it is just the sheer wonder that comes with a new fascinating fantasy tr

In my last post, I mentioned that Linda Street’s new book is a “channeled text”. What does that mean?

Greetings Edge Readers:

I’m back again, as promised, with more information on our speaker for this Thursday’s program,
The Rays of LightLinda Street.
 
Linda’s educational background includes a BA in Psychology and a MA in Public Administration. She has years of work experience in both the Mental Health field and in Human Resources and currently runs her own business, Healing From Your Heart, right here in Westlake, where she practices in-person and distance energy healing.
 
She’s a Third Degree Reiki Master and certified in numerous other energy therapies, including  IET (Integrated Energy Therapy), Diamond Light Therapy, and ARCH (Ancient Rainbow Conscious Healing). She is a member of the Cleveland Chapter of the International Coach Federation.
 
The Rays of Light is a healing therapy channeled from higher consciousness through Linda, which she, alone, practices and which is the subject of her new book of the same name. This is the therapy Linda will be discussing on Thursday, along with the process by which it was written.
 
Linda is a frequent speaker at venues around Ohio and in near-by states. In fact, this will be her third appearance here. In 2012, she presented a program entitled, Healing From Your Heart, and in 2013, she presented Energy Therapy and Chakra Cleansing. Check out her website at www.healingfromyourheart.com for details of her future engagements and for information about her services.

The Sports Section - Summer Events Near and Far

Lots going on with the Cleveland sports scene right now.  First up, this week, (June 5-8) is The Cleveland Open, an event on the web.com golf tour schedule.  The tournament will be played at Lakewood Country Club, right here in Westlake.  For all the details about the event, go to the official site, The Cleveland Open.  Parking for all spectators will be restricted to Crocker Park, with shuttle vans running every 10-15 minutes.  You can also catch the action on the Golf Channel Thursday and Friday from 6:30-9 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 7-9 pm.  Nice to be in the spotlight.

 

Coming July 3-6 is the Continental Cup International Youth Sports Festival, featuring over 3000 young athletes from all over the world participating in soccer, baseball, and basketball competitions.  Last year 218 teams played more than 500 games on 28 fields/courts.  The Greater Cleveland Sports Commission has all the info on schedules and venues.

 

The next major golf championship is the U. S. Open, being played at Pinehurst Country Club in Pinehurst, NC from June 9-15.  The defending champion of this tournament, that always concludes on Father's Day, is England's Justin Rose.

 

One of the premiere sporting events this summer is the FIFA International Men's Football Tournament, better known as the World Cup.  Brazil is the host nation of this once-every-four-years tournament, running from June 12-July 13.  32 teams will compete in 64 matches held at 12 venues, all of which will be televised live on ESPN and its affiliates.  The U.S. team plays its first match against Ghana on June 16 at 6 pm on ESPN.  The early favorite to win it all - Brazil!

 

Finishing up this week - the French Open tennis tournment played at Roland-Garros.  The Women's Singles Champion of 2013, Serena Williams, is out, but the defending Men's Singles Champion,  Rafael Nadal, continues on towards the finals on Sunday.

 

This Saturday, June 7, the final leg of racing's Triple Crown will be contested in the Belmont Stakes in New York - the longest of the 3 races.  California Chrome is currently favored to win and become a Triple Crown champion, the first horse to do so since Affirmed in 1978.

 

And, as always, there's plenty of exciting interest in the Browns, Indians, and Cavaliers right now.  Lots to talk about on all fronts.  Are these the wait-'til-next year seasons all the teams and fans have been waiting for?
