Download and read online Can t Find My Way Home in PDF and EPUB Can't Find My Way Home is a history of illicit drug use in America in the second half of the twentieth century and a personal journey through the drug experience. It's the remarkable story of how America got high, the epic tale of how the American Century transformed into the Great Stoned Age. Martin Torgoff begins with the avant-garde worlds of bebop jazz and the emerging Beat writers, who embraced the consciousness-altering properties of marijuana and other underground drugs. These musicians and writers midwifed the age of marijuana in the 1960s even as Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (later Ram Dass) discovered the power of LSD, ushering in the psychedelic era. While President John Kennedy proclaimed a New Frontier and NASA journeyed to the moon, millions of young Americans began discovering their own new frontiers on a voyage to inner space. What had been the province of a fringe avant-garde only a decade earlier became a mass movement that affected and altered mainstream America. And so America sped through the century, dropping acid and eating magic mushrooms at home, shooting heroin and ingesting amphetamines in Vietnam, snorting cocaine in the disco era, smoking crack cocaine in the devastated inner cities of the 1980s, discovering MDMA (Ecstasy) in the rave culture of the 1990s. Can't Find My Way Home tells this extraordinary story by weaving together first-person accounts and historical background into a narrative vast in scope yet rich in intimate detail. Among those who describe their experiments with consciousness are Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Robert Stone, Wavy Gravy, Grace Slick, Oliver Stone, Peter Coyote, David Crosby, and many others from Haight Ashbury to Studio 54 to housing projects and rave warehouses. But Can't Find My Way Home does not neglect the recovery movement, the war on drugs, and the ongoing debate over drug policy. And even as Martin Torgoff tells the story of his own addiction and recovery, he neither romanticizes nor demonizes drugs. If he finds them less dangerous than the moral crusaders say they are, he also finds them less benign than advocates insist. Illegal drugs changed the cultural landscape of America, and they continue to shape our country, with enormous consequences. This ambitious, fascinating book is the story of how that happened.

Download and read online Can t Find My Way Home in PDF and EPUB What do today's headlines have to do with yesterday's Bible Prophecies? Could the prophets of old really foretell events that cover our news today? If you find yourself intrigued with events that surround us daily and wonder if there is a greater purpose then this book will give you the insight you need to understand today and prepare for tomorrow with great hope! Bible prophecy was not written centuries ago to scare or frighten us. Rather it was written to give us clues for understanding the world in which we live. Unfortunately Bible prophecy has gotten a bum rap. Too many times people have gotten wrapped up in the judgements of Revelations and failed to see that there is much more to discover in prophecy that doom. The prophetic scriptures, though understood individually, fit together like a puzzle. Focussing on one book or event in prophecy and refusing to piece it together with others limits understanding and clear insight. You don't have to be a Bible scholar to gain knowledge about the signs of our times. With Bible prophecy being fulfilled at such an incredible speed and all eyes on Israel and the Middle East now, more than ever, it is time to live life intentionally with our eyes on Jesus. Ezekiel predicted that Russia would be a major player during the last days. This generation has seen Russia Rise and Time Magazine even name Putin Man of the Year for 2007! Prophets of old wrote that there would be an increase in violence, marriage would come under attack, deception would be prevelant and moral decay would be evident. Even though it looks like things are falling a part you can be certain that things are simply falling into place...just as the scriptures said!

In the age of GPS and iPhones, human beings it would seem have mastered the art of direction, but does the need for these devices signal something else—that as a species we are actually hopelessly lost. In fact we've filled our world with signs and arrows. We still get lost in the mall, or a maze of cubicles. What does this say about us? Drawing on his exhaustive research, Professor Collin Ellard illuminates how humans are disconnected from our world and what this means, not just for how we get from A to B, but also for how we construct our cities, our workplaces, our homes, and even our lives.
