The New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels tells the story of a woman coming home to the family she left behind—and to the woman she always wanted to be.... Georgia Chambers has spent her life sifting through other people’s pasts while trying to forget her own. But then her work as an expert on fine china—especially Limoges—requires her to return to the one place she swore she’d never revisit.... It has been ten years since Georgia left her family home on the coast of Florida, and nothing much has changed except that there are fewer oysters and more tourists. She finds solace in seeing her grandfather still toiling away in the apiary where she spent much of her childhood, but encountering her estranged mother and sister leaves her rattled. Seeing them after all this time makes Georgia realize that something has been missing—and unless she finds a way to heal these rifts, she will forever be living vicariously through other people’s remnants. To embrace her own life—mistakes and all—she will have to find the courage to confront the ghosts of her past and the secrets she was forced to keep.... READERS GUIDE INCLUDED

From 1918 to 1929 American aviation progressed through the pioneering era, establishing the pattern of its impact on national security, commerce and industry, communication, travel, geography, and international relations. In America, as well as on a global basis, society experienced a dramatic transformation from a two-dimensional world to a three-dimensional one. By 1929 aviation was poised at the threshold of a new epoch. Covering both military and civil aviation trends, Roger Bilstein's study highlights these developments, explaining how the pattern of aviation activities in the 1920s is reflected through succeeding decades. At the same time, the author discusses the social, economic, and political ramifications of this robust new technology. Aviation histories usually pay little attention to aeronautical images as an aspect of popular culture. Thoughtful observers of the 1920s such as Stuart Chase and Heywood Broun considered aircraft to be an encouraging example of the new technology-workmanlike, efficient, and graceful, perhaps representing a new spirit of international good will. Flight Patterns is particularly useful for its discussion of both economic and cultural factors, treating them as integrated elements of the evolving air age.

Flight Patternshighlights contemporary artists primarily working in the Pacific Basin--Southern California, Canada, New Zealand and Australia--whose work addresses the specific topographical conditions and experience of living in this geographically and geopolitically dynamic region. As its conceptual foundation, Flight Patternsrethinks topographical practices of photography since the 1970s, looking at current manifestations of the topographical impulse in landscape-oriented work. The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue include new projects, recent work from the 1990s, and historically significant works of photography, film, video and painting by 23 artists including Doug Aitken, Rodney Graham, Anthony Hernandez, Tracey Moffatt, Paul Outerbridge, Allan Sekula, Miles Coolidge and Simon Leung. Flight Patternsintroduces the work of West Coast American artists as well as those artists working in regions where there is a parallel history of landscapes and their representation, and where similar postcolonial issues are at stake. A landmark artistic, social and geographical document, Flight Patternshighlights a diversity of artistic approaches--both formalist and conceptual--to one of the most fascinating and complex areas of the planet.

One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. You don’t have to settle! It’s simply a choice you make every day,” Shannon says. Her life looked perfect from the outside – great career, family, house, etc – but inside she was an empty shell. A marriage in trouble and no personal growth plan in place, Shannon struggled to survive each day. When the pain of remaining the same became greater than the pain of change, she realized that the first step to living the life she wanted meant leaving the life she didn’t want. This lead her to the decision to end her marriage and begin her journey of self discovery “When we let go of what is no longer serving and supporting us, we will make room for what will. And like the caterpillar climbing out of its cocoon, it is a worthwhile trip”. Shannon transformed into a butterfly, after struggling through the painful stages and has now stepped fully and completely into her new self. Through her own personal experiences, she’s now able to help others break the mold of conformity and discover their own flight patterns . “It serves no one for you to hold back and not bring to the world all that you have to offer” she says.
