RAVENNA - Look Up!  Birds and Other Natural Wonders Just Outside Your Window By Woody Wheeler

Nov 5 2014 7:00 pm

You don’t have to travel around the
world or spend a ton of money to enjoy the wonders of nature. "Look
Up! Birds and Other Natural Wonders Just Outside Your Window" is
a series of well-researched nature essays (many that take place here
in Ravenna!) that will inspire readers to experience the outdoors in
an affordable, accessible and joyful way. The essays encourage
backyard and local bird watching, native plant landscaping and
restoration, practical energy conservation and land conservation.
They also explore how we can derive psychological benefits from these
activities—how nature can help us live happier, more fulfilled and
rewarding lives."

edge into paranoid psychosis... and straight into the mental ward of
Seattle's Providence Hospital or, as he perceived it, Hell. In the
ensuing six months, he battled his real-life demons, jumped out a
second-story window, and encountered God in a fluorescent light
fixture. In this raw, often wryly comic memoir, Guppy invites readers
into his haunted, 23-year-old head... and the experience is
electrifying. Recreated from journal entries and the notes of
mental-health professionals, the story of the author's struggle to
rebuild his sanity is a gripping spiritual and psychological
