Time Walker (Spirit Bound Book 1)
As if the sword was in her head. As if it soon might try to control her. Hi Amy! I have no immediate plans to continue. The idea was to write a book from each of the siblings POV. Hi Meghan, this answer is now three years old soooo is there a NEW answer for this question?

Will definitely be expanding this series! Loved this book. I have no current plans to bring out another book in this Universe. The second book was to follow another of the siblings but adding to the Adept Universe takes all of my time these days. Hi Meghan. Very impressive. GOOD for you and many more in your future.

On the plus side, he had finally got the right price point on a new sushi rice, which he described with an enthusiasm that others might associate with riskier substances. Co-op people get fanatical about casein, but not Weber.
The secret is the source: the specialty distributors Weber works with have limited warehouse space and give him a deal on whatever they need to move. Weber, who wears a fedora and has the calm, inscrutable demeanor of an undercover agent, came on staff in Before, he had been a massage therapist and a musician with dreams of going pro; he played guitar in a band called the Dad Beats!
Having a title does not necessarily amount to having the final word. Weber described the position to me as having no bosses and seventeen thousand at the same time. Lempert, for instance, would like to try out some grain-finished beef, in order to work with more local farms. Many farmers in the Northeast supplement grass with a bit of grain in the winter.
But the membership voted, in the early two-thousands, to allow only organic or hundred-per-cent-grass-fed red meat to be sold. Agricultural science has advanced since then, but the people have spoken.

Yuppification, gentrification—whatever you want to call it, Park Slope is its poster child. Good luck finding one of those today. A recent addition to the street is Union, a doorman building that looms over its low-slung neighbors like a cruise ship. Like just about every successful small business in the city, the Co-op has survived by virtue of real-estate luck.
Carly's Current Read
Member investment money allowed the Co-op to buy Union Street early on, and, later, when the buying was still good, the two buildings on either side. Its relationship to local change is complex. On the one hand, the Co-op was started by young, white newcomers to the Slope and served many of the same. The Co-op strives to be a good neighbor.
Members can fulfill their shift requirement by hauling loads of compost to community gardens, or by preparing and serving food at CHiPS, a nearby soup kitchen. In a sense, the Co-op is a neighborhood unto itself, a majority-middle-class island in a swelling sea of homogenizing wealth. The wealth filters in, though. In the age of one-click delivery, it can seem antediluvian to trudge home with brutally heavy sacks dangling from your shoulders.
One day, I got to talking with the member ringing up my groceries in the express line, Peter Kim George, a playwright in his early thirties. I grew up with Korean evangelical parents. I hate it. Like houseplants, co-ops are easier to kill than to keep alive. Costs, logistics, conflict, and burnout can bring even the healthiest ones down. The mighty Berkeley Co-op went under in Opinions are something that the Co-op carries in bulk.
Everyone else has a point of view on everything. The fact that all members have equal status is, mostly, a beautiful thing, but, without figures of authority to appeal to in times of tension, minor disagreements get out of hand. Shaming is a popular tactic. A shift-mate of mine told me that she had recently been accosted for snacking in the building, an almost universally unenforced Co-op no-no, by a member who then got on the intercom to crow to the rest of the building that she had nabbed an offender.
On a fresh, bright Saturday morning, I got a tip: people were standing in front of the Co-op, shouting about racism. Next to her, two white women, one cradling a Chihuahua in a pink sweater, held a poster printed with text that read like a Beat poem:. He and his mother lived in Greenwich Village; she would take the subway to shop at a co-op on the Upper West Side.
The soundtrack was eclectic—rap, African music, sixties rock, salsa, Prince, Amy Winehouse. But, whoa, that one per cent. The one per cent did not like the music, and they did not like the volume at which it was played. That, too, Ferguson remembered.
He was informed that he would be removed from his position as squad leader and should find a different shift. Thus began a saga for the ages. Ferguson demanded a full disciplinary hearing; quickly he learned that none was available for members who had been removed from their posts. He brought his complaint to a Co-op meeting, where nineteen faithful members of his squad testified on his behalf.
In the midst of this, Ferguson, who, in defiance of the judgment against him, had kept showing up for his shift, was informed that he had been suspended from the Co-op for eighteen months. He has been protesting ever since, during his former work slot. My mother was a community activist.
What would they have said about my grandparents, fighting against segregation? A woman in a leather biker jacket came over. But why eighteen months? Some Co-op employees have their own issues with the workplace culture. Behind the scenes, though, the situation was tense. Dogged Gazette reporters then filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain the complaint, which alleged, in part, retaliation and intimidation against the unionizers by management. But the unionizers raised concerns about safety problems, unfair disciplinary procedures, and racism in the workplace.
The settlement agreement obliged the Co-op to distribute a notice to employees informing them of their rights. In the way of such matters, each side has taken the results as a vindication of its position. The main democratic organ of the Co-op is the General Meeting, a monthly two-hour-and-forty-five-minute gathering during which members discuss current Co-op affairs, vote on officers, and bring proposals for new projects, committees, and policies.
There is a brief board meeting at the end, effectively a pro-forma affair to officially vote aye on the things that members have voted aye on, nay on the nays. Each meeting tends to attract a group of a few hundred people—members can get work credit twice a year for attending a G. This can make for a partial, haphazard sort of decision-making. The issue is officially settled—membership voted down boycott at a legendarily acrimonious G.

The September meeting was held in a fluorescent-lit high-school auditorium. Members seeking work credit for attending sat toward the back, ready to run as soon as things wrapped. People checked their phones. A woman graded papers. This was what democracy looked like. The Co-op long ago phased out plastic shopping bags, but it continues to make plastic roll bags available for produce and bulk items. On the other hand, using disposable plastic at the Co-op is like wearing a fur coat to a PETA convention.
How could we talk a big environmental game and still look ourselves in the face? Tracy Fitz, a slight woman with a blue head scarf trailing, Davy Crockett style, down her back, took the floor to introduce the proposal: that all fossil-fuel plastic bags be replaced by compostable ones, made from plant resin, by the end of the year. The room applauded. The head of the Chair Committee reminded people not to applaud. Next came Aron Namenwirth, solemn and bearded.
For many years, he had worked a food-processing shift bagging olives. The head of the Chair Committee reminded people not to cheer. Questions about pricing and practicality followed, and then comments. A woman who identified herself as a walker took the floor.
His argument: compostable bags, which can require more energy to make than regular plastic, contribute more to global warming. Susan Metz, a G. The request was voted down.
