"Michele Lowe's radiant new play explores the possibilities that open up in the lives of an array of women as they come into contact with a certain strand of pearls. While the pearls are stolen, bought, bestowed, unstrung and nearly lost, four actresses play 27 characters in this deeply moving drama that is as fresh as it is funny. On the eve of her granddaughter Amy's wedding, Beth asks to see the pearls she gave Amy's mother long ago. When Amy cannot produce them Beth determines to find the pearls. She takes us back to the time when she received them and then gave them to her daughter, who passed them on to her dearest friend Ela who lost them one Sunday morning. Spanning 35 years, the pearls touch the lives of mothers and daughters, sisters and friends, even husbands and wives as they weave a deeply affecting story of love and loss."--Publisher's website.

Three Golden Pearls On A String


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"Budo is the way to cut oneself from one’s first step to the point one can reach. To cut oneself means to face our own mind directly, honestly, strictly; to polish the mind by cutting away cowardliness, selfishness, ugliness, and weakness. To have the mind’s eye, me must have a strong mind. At the same time, it is absolutely necessary to be very humble." -From the Foreword

A String Of Pearls


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

I have an inordinate love of nature, so when I read my first Haiku, I was deeply impressed by it's ability to convey such beautiful thoughts in one breath. The purpose of my collection is to try to do the same, while evoking a strong emotional response and proposing a subject for meditation. While knowing that my love of nature is intense, I still know that I do not own the tree I planted. There is an old Chinese proverb that exhorts us to keep that green tree in out hearts, and maybe a songbird will come along. Not being attached to the outcome of our wishes often engenders great peace. A sense of detachment guarantees serenity and reading Haiku brings the opportunity for such a healthy quietude. No one has everything, everyone has something, sometimes something is nothing, having nothing, needing nothing, wanting nothing, is blessed peace. I hope you enjoy book.

The String Of Pearls


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Sweeney Todd is a barber who murders his customers and turns their remains into meat pies sold at the pie shop of Mrs. Lovett, his partner in crime. His barber shop is situated in Fleet Street, London, next to St. Dunstan's church, and is connected to Lovett's pie shop in nearby Bell Yard by means of an underground passage. Todd dispatches his victims by pulling a lever while they are in his barber chair, which makes them fall backward down a revolving trapdoor and generally causes them to break their necks or skulls on the cellar floor below. If the victims are still alive, he goes to the basement and "polishes them off" by slitting their throats with his straight razor.

Sarah encourages readers to cross their own bridges, one tear and one laugh at a time, to reach their 'aha' moments, gaining truths and faith in their own voices and choices. Warning: just be sure not to cross your bridges during summer fishfly season--read her memoir to find out why! Take the time to write a few of your stories to share with family and friends. Reflection and resilience are the two buoys that steady her as she leaps from pearl to pearl on her way through life's challenges.
