This is a short and moving booklet, written by the author when he knew he a short time to live. It is written from a strong Christian viewpoint, as would be expected from a Church of England Vicar. He displays courage and hope. This would be a very valuable book for anyone in facing the end of their own life who has a foundation of faith that could be strengthened.On My Way To Heaven
This fantastic music will lift your heart. The mixture of different types of dance rhythm, together with the unique sound of the Soweto String Quartet is a joy from the first track to the last. This is music at its best, crossing all genre and using traditional instruments in a surpising way. It is hard to track this album down, but well worth the effort. Of the title track, Makhosini Muguni, who plays the viola writes, 'This song is my personal; prayer of thanks to God for giving me my life - and my music'. There is a great video to go with the title track on Youtube which gives a real feel of this wonderful album.
This book is a very valuable introduction to understanding attitudes in contemporary Bulgaria. It demonstrates clearly how people were treated by the communist regime and how this has had a long term impact. It is also a hopeful account looking towards a better future. I am invovled with the charity Harvest for the Hungry that takes food and other items from Essex, England, to Bulgaria. Reading A Street without a Name has helped those who have travelled to Bulgaria with the aid.
