In "SLOWLY, AS IF", Karen Press looks clear-eyed at what it means to live in a complex society, a fragile world. She celebrates the connectedness that sustains us - in dance, in love, with the natural world, in cities where 'strangers seem happy / to let you be' - and sees it betrayed by our unreflecting complicity in poverty and violence. The death of a child who 'barely scratched the air of the country' resonates in her tender, devastating account: 'When a child dies, who is responsible[unk]' "SLOWLY, AS IF" asks hard questions with grace and wit, balancing the particular and the universal. 'Being told / you're made of stardust / is not helpful / as you sit holding a parking ticket', but it is, none the less, a truth.

    Question, though: As ebook readers such as the Kindle continue to improve, do you think this will impact your ability to earn money for your work, or do you think (like some music) users will gladly provide money to keep you going and reward your efforts?

    3) I see they have 3 pricing options: $8, $16 and $24. I notice that under $8 range it says "Sell 1 Product & Accept Donations". I am a bit confused about it.So does arts and crafts count as one product? I couldn't find detailed info on that option anywhere on their site. And their $16 says "Sell up to 20 Products"ЙЙ Thanks again for the great reviews!

      Thanks for the helpful article but I still Have a few questions. I am a first time website builder so simplicity is key. I want a website to store my opinionated writings for some of my school classes, so I want it set up almost like a news site.I would really like the website to include a comment section for other to post their opinions. My main concern is money. I want NO costs for this website while still being able to do what I asked for above. Which website do u recommend?

      Thanks Dave! I think you're right about all of us being susceptible to any of the items on the list if we're not careful.

    If you choose sequential numbers, you have two options for how those numbers are applied: highest barcode +1, or lowest free barcode.
