Kelpie’s Bells by Irene Javors, Illustrated by Matthew Snow

Kelpie cat lives exactly the life she wants to live. There is plenty of space to explore in that special way that cats explore. There are lots of toys to play with. Lots of good food. She has all the attention she wants from her human companion. Most of all nothing changes – everything is in its place – there are no surprises- the Best of All Possible Worlds for a Cat! One day follows the next but then out of the blue: BOOM! BOOM! CHANGE! MANY CHANGES! What is Kelpie to do? She thinks: ” What is to become of me” Confronted by these major life changes, Kelpie is thrown into a delirium of “dislocation anxiety” – she no longer knows what her life is about or where she belongs. This heartwarming story takes the reader into the mind of Kelpie Cat – how she learns to accept and thrive amidst great change. Kelpie learns about the power that love and friendship have to heal her broken heart. This is a book for all ages – for all who want to learn about resilience, companionship and trust.

Culture Notes: Essays on Sane Living

New York City licensed mental health counselor Irene Rosenberg Javors takes a look at what’s really going on in our collective psyche in Culture Notes: Essays on Sane Living, a collection of a decade’s worth of columns for Annals of the American Psychotherapy Association that touches on topics ranging from the challenges of aging to the tragedies of the 9/11 attacks. Within her plainspoken essays, the reader finds a prescription for “sane living” to counteract the negative messages with which society continually bombards us. While some are geared for the author’s peers in the mental health profession, practically anyone can benefit from a dose of what Javors recommends: moderation, compassion, critical thinking, and resiliency in the face of life’s challenges. Order on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
