Henry David Thoreau was a rebel. A rebel with many causes. He opposed taxation, contested war on foreign soils, was a strong advocate for the abolition of slavery, refused to pay fees for things that he thought were earned and therefore should not cost money (e.g., as a Harvard graduate he rejected paying the dollar required for getting his official graduation certificate). He believed in the interdependence of man and nature, independent thinking, education through discovery, and he rebuffed organized religion. (more...)

BWW Student Blog: Sydney Gross- Auditions
by Guest Blogger: Sydney Gross - Dec 9, 2016

"Hey there Delilah, what's it like in New York City..." Lori's alarm clock blared as she groggily went to hit the snooze button. She knew she could not let that button be hit one more time, it was her opening night on Broadway. Everyday was the same for her. Get up, go to school, go to rehearsal, get some sort of fast food, go home, do homework, and finally go to sleep. It was an endless cycle that probably is not very healthy. Anybody would think that having an opening night on Broadway would be fun and exciting, but for Lori, there was so many things going on in her head. Lori was an average teenager, stressing over grades, popularity, and boys. That was until she heard on the radio that Hamilton, the smash hit musical that had been breaking ticket number records since it opened, was having an open casting audition in New York City for the new Elizabeth Schuyler. Lori had been acting her entire life in community theatres and schools and such. Her dream was to eventually make it to Broadway but she never thought that this opportunity would come so early in life. She sat up in bed and looked at her watch. (more...)

Halo Publishing International Launches 'Mindfulness of Nature'
by BWW News Desk - Dec 5, 2016

In the first in a series of books supporting the benefits of affirmation, author Jo Ann Petrucci Andrews offers a collection of beautiful landscape images combined with words of positive support. 'Mindfulness of Nature' uses the alphabet as a foundation for presenting encouraging words to help readers focus on the positive rather than the negative in life. 'Sometimes we just need to be reminded that no matter how dark our day is or how negative a relationship may be, there is a ray of positivity if we look for it,' said author Jo Ann Petrucci Andrews. 'I wanted to create a book that would help readers remember their strengths, their value and the parts of their life for which they should be most thankful.' 'Mindfulness of Nature' statements of affirmation from A to Z can be used as a daily reminder, an as-needed dose of positivity or even as a family activity to promote a habit of thinking on the bright side of life. Each beautiful image was taken by the author depicting some of her favorite restful spots from the woodlands of New England to the beaches of Mexico. 'I wanted to combine the beauty of nature with encouraging words to help the reader be in the moment,' said Andrews. 'There is a gift to be had by focusing on the positive in our life right this moment rather than bemoaning what might have been or worrying about the 'what ifs' of the future. Being in the moment is a great way to change the direction of our Thoughts which can help us as we view life, relationships, work and every aspect of our day.' 'I keep a copy of Jo Ann's book within easy reach,' said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. 'I thoroughly enjoyed the positive messages during the first read through and now I flip through at random and pick a page to help focus my mind during the day. It is a great way to remind me of the blessings in my life.' Andrews is working on a series of books to follow 'Mindfulness of Nature' based on her professional counseling sessions that will inspire, motivate and encourage readers to live in the moment and surround themselves with positive Thoughts, positive people and positive experiences. 'Mindfulness of Nature' is available from: - Halo Publishing - - Amazon - - Barnes and Noble - Purchase your copy as an e-book for $7.99 or hardcover for $15.95.
