Nimericks (Narrative Limericks) by Laurence Parsons--From the nation of Imagi come these stories to inform, to uplift and to entertain.

Laurence Parsons was born September 1, 1942, in Phoenix, Arizona. His father was a sign-and- house painter and his mother a housewife.

Laurence’s boyhood dreams to become an archaeologist fell by the wayside when he, at twelve, became smitten by the magic bug. During his teens he practised sleight-of-hand and, after three years of active duty in the US Army, he became a professional magician in 1964.




He and his German-born wife and assistant, Heidi, performed their magic acts in nightclubs, casinos and TV shows in many countries. Their credits included The London Savoy Hotel, the Casino Monte Carlo, the New Latin Quarter in Tokyo and numerous performances for dignitaries including the ex-King and Queen of Greece and the Shah of Iran (when American/Iranian relations were still good!).

After a divorce in 1982, Laurence continued show business activities as solo magician and also as cruise director with various lines where he was able to put his languages—English, German, French and Italian — to good use.

In 2006 a domestic situation required his physical presence in Starnberg, Bavaria, and he used his free time during the next six years to write the verses he calls nimericks.

Don't Let the Blue Star Turn Gold--Downed Airmen in Europe in WW II by Jerry W. Whiting–These are true stories of airmen who didn't return from bombing missions over Europe. To those flying with them, they were simply gone. Many died in fiery crashes, while others became POWs or Evadees. A few were captured and later escaped and a small number were shot in their parachutes or killed after landing. Back at home, the families waited, often not knowing if a loved one survived. The stories are about the struggle to survive, so that blue star proudly hanging in the window at home wouldn't be replaced by a gold one.

They are accounts of love, duty and courage. Some include information about those who aided the downed airmen. Each is placed in the context of what was happening elsewhere in the world at the time. The author shares background history of how each story came to be, often with surprising revelations. Painstakingly researched, this book is a must read for anyone interested in 20th Century American history, particularly for those interested in WWII.

Quest for Younger Love by Kenneth W. Schuster– What would it be like to leave everything you’ve known behind in search of a new life? What would it be like to travel west when the country was young and trying to rebuild itself after the Civil War? What would it be like to see a town that looked inviting and decide in a matter of minutes that this is where you will settle—not knowing anyone or anything about the town? Could you be this brave and leave all ties behind to seek new adventures?

Well, Jamie Burton was. With his M.D. from Boston University, Dr. Jamie Burton headed west to establish a practice. During a brief stop in a small river town in central Missouri, Jamie saw enough to want to stay. This looked like a place where he could hang out his shingle, make some new friends and, hopefully, find someone to share his life. Would it be the best decision of his life or a huge mistake? In Quest for a Younger Love, as Jamie's life unfolds, he learns that prescribing medicine is not always the best or only way to help others.

Bhagavad Gita–A Mystic Scripture by Morten Wellhaven–In the battle of his life, the prince of this scripture is in the beginning lost and unable to see what is right. He ends up confused with his will and courage all gone.

Then as the battle is about to start, an avatar begins to speak to the prince. In the second chapter, this God-realized avatar begins his lessons by teaching the prince about the soul.

He quietly starts to speak, “My prince, the soul was never born, nor shall it cease to be. There was not a time it did not exist, and no time shall come when it will not remain. It is untouched, unassailed, unharmed and eternal.”

So begins one of the many lessons taught in this ancient scripture. The prince listens and begins to understand the proper path to emancipation and spiritual greatness. And by understanding, the prince lays down an empowering journey for all. His path ends as a guiding light to all those who have longingly felt the homing instinct of the soul.
