BWW Review: Playhouse Stages a Large Scale ALL THE WAY
by Joseph Baker - Mar 7, 2016

'I am in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more, / Returning were as tedious as go o'er,' says Macbeth in William Shakespeare's tragedy of the same name. I have always felt that these lines could have described President Lyndon Johnson as he doggedly followed his disastrous course in Vietnam. Now, certainly, Johnson was no villain as such; however, to countless Americans, his term in office will be forever marred by his hubristic determination to succeed. For some families touched by tragedy, his very name will be forever reviled. However, in recent years, many historians (such as Doris Kearns Goodwin) have tried to see 'the forest' beyond 'the trees' and have lauded Johnson for effecting legislation that culminated in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and in voting rights for Blacks. Playhouse on the Square's current production of Robert Schenkkan's ALL THE WAY (recalling LBJ's campaign slogan 'All the way with LBJ') focuses on Johnson's political maneuvers in that arena -- especially as they factor in his desire to be elected as something more than an 'accidental President.'

When Svetlana Lilova arrived in Canada as a teen, she didn't know a single word of English. A dictionary quickly became her indispensable companion as she strove to understand the world around her. With the publication of her first book of poetry, Metaphysical Dictionary, the older and wiser Lilova has reversed the flow. A collection of 250 very short poems, framed as term and definition and alphabetically sorted, Metaphysical Dictionary re-interprets the language through a lexicon of implications, hints, and emotions. A certified psychotherapist as well as a poet, Lilova explains that her two practices are intertwined. 'I began to compile my dictionary as I deepened my understanding that people are always searching for the essential - the essence of a problem, beyond and beneath its circumstantial specifics. In the process we often discard the given meaning of a word and replace it with something more resonant. And that's what I do with these poems: each one is a tiny quest for resonance, a private language.' Published by Dumagrad Books of Toronto, Metaphysical Dictionary is finding an eager readership beyond the usual audience for poetry, serving as an inspiration to those who seek self-understanding through their own journals, diaries, sketchbooks or scrapbooks. Metaphysical Dictionary will be available for $14.95 on February 2, 2016 from select Toronto bookstores and boutiques, from Amazon, and directly from the publisher at (more...)

THE GOD OF NATION: A Non-Religious Guide to Believing in God is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 19, 2016

These are the biggest questions humanity has ever asked: Why are we here, what is the meaning of life, and who or what is God. Really, it all boils down to asking why there is something more than nothing. The answer is simple, according to Stuart E. Elwell, author of the new book; The God Notion - A Non-Religious Guide to Believing in God. Infinite potential and absolute nothing can only be concepts when they are relative to each other. In other words, everything can only be anything in relation to not being that thing, or not being something else. Think about it. Even nothing means nothing, unless it is not being something. Anything at all has to be more than nothing but less that everything: So the reason there is something more than nothing, is the same reason anything is less than everything: And this is why anything exists at all, and nothing lasts forever ...even the universe came from nothing and will not last for all eternity. However, the reason for its existence comes from the eternal Source of all potentiality: And as consciousness is a natural experiencing part of this Source, then consciousness must be eternal ...a natural evolving sentience of the Infinite Source. The book describes all potential as coming from the Infinite Source, but this Source cannot be anything without becoming less than infinite, or finite. So infinite potential needs to be worked out in the context of being less than infinite, but more than nothing. To quote from the book...'stemming from a kind of pure thinking [the universe] is focussing potentials like a universal brain, or mind.' According to the author, this means Universal Mind shows its workings as reality within space and time. Space is like an input hosting medium of this universal mind, and time is an output feed for its expressivity. The book goes into depth explaining all this in an easy to read but inspiring way. The author presents a logical non-religious argument for believing in God, and describes spirituality and divine purpose as a fact-based science-friendly subject that could change the way people think about the concept of God forever. This book offers a strong counter-argument to the atheistic view, such as in Richard Dawkins bestseller, 'The God Delusion,' but also challenges religious perspectives. The headline of the book's back cover, or blurb, (also shown on the website) is, 'a science-friendly interpretation of spirituality and divine purpose.' (more...)
