Coming Full Circle

Nancy Philippi

"A woman approaching 60 journeys alone around the world, with only a backpack and an open-ended ticket, to find out whether she can revitalize her life. Her husband’s suicide 17 years earlier left her with three children to raise, mountains of pain and guilt to overcome, and a protective shell around her feelings and her dreams. With her children now grown and her ailing mother recently deceased, she decides it’s now or never to discover whether her once-vibrant sense of wonder and adventure can be reignited. But she fears that the years may have destroyed what she remembers as her inner self and that meaning in life, much less happiness, is no longer available to her. Traveling westward around the globe, she slowly discovers her old zest for life, but not without a full complement of accompanying pain. During her early weeks in Hong Kong and a bitter- sweet experience in mainland China, she begins to shed the image of “tourist” and to view herself as a true journeyer, but loneliness consumes her and she considers giving up and settling for whatever drab fate may await her back home. In freewheeling Thailand, however, she senses the beginnings of a breakthrough during an opium-smoking elephant riding trek through the Golden Triangle. Struggling up and down the disarray of the Malaysian peninsula, into the jungles of Borneo, through a terrifying bus trip across Sumatra, and finally collapsing in sterile Singapore, she confronts demons from her past. Her old self gets severed battered and as it disintegrates, she wonders if by throwing over her old life, she hasn’t destroyed the best that she could hope for. But then two magical weeks in Sri Lanka under the tutelage of a remarkable guide provide a healing time, and during a month in India she makes strong new connections with the people around her. The world that includes the Ramadan of new Muslim friends, a camel trip, the Rajasthan desert culture, vestiges of the Mongul civilization, the forces that wreaked havoc at Ayodhya and the rough-and-tumble street life of New Delhi becomes her home. Daily confrontations with the unknowns of the outer world evoke possibilities for a revived inner life, and as she journeys along less traveled paths she peels off the crusty coverings of past personas and discovers new, more honest ways to be and live. She discovers ways and relationships that work best for her and by testing her limits learns about both the opportunities and constraints that will define the last one third of her life. As routine and repetition disappear, time slows down and she recaptures her long-lost excitement at the promise of each day. Out of the pain of loneliness she discovers the pleasures of solitude. Toward the end of her journey, two weeks in Greece with her high school sweetheart help her understand that intimate relationships may be less important to her chosen way of life than staying open to the infinite kaleidoscope of life. By the end of the trip she has emerged from the memories, fantasies, and miseries of the past into the present, ready for the future. She is not who she had hoped she would become, but she is who she is. She has learned to be, in the words of Shiva Naipaul, “more properly real.” This story of one woman’s search for personal authenticity on a trip around the world is relevant to anyone of any age who is interested in becoming a traveler, rather than a tourist, on life’s journey."

Reise durch die Wüste Atacama: Auf Befehl der Chilenischen Regierung im Sommer 1853-54 (German Edition)

Rudolph Amandus Philippi

"Was den Plan des Werkes betrifft, so habe ich es für das Beste gehalten, meine Beobachtungen so wiederzugeben, wie ich sie Tag für Tag gemacht habe. Es schien mir dies durchaus notwendig, damit der Leser sich vollkommen von der Wahrhaftigkeit meiner Angaben überzeuge, was ohnedies vielleicht schwer halten würde, da dieselben eine Menge gleichsam mit der Muttermilch eingesogene Vorstellungen, z. B. von einer Sandwüste, von grossen Längstälern, Kettengebirgen u. s. w. über den Haufen stossen. Ich habe später versucht , ein allgemeines Gemälde von der physischen Gestaltung des Landes und seiner geognostischen Beschaffenheit zu geben; die speziellen Angaben im Reisebericht setzen einen Jeden in den Stand, sich zu vergewissern, in wie weit die von mir gezogenen Resultate richtig sind oder nicht." [...] Der deutsche Botaniker, Zoologe und Paläontologe Dr. Rudolph Amandus Philippi bereiste im Auftrag der Regierung von Chile Mitte des 19. Jahrhundert die Atacama Wüste, eine der trockensten Landschaften der Erde. Seine Erlebnisse und Erforschungen schildert Philippi in dem vorliegenden spannenden und interessanten Bericht. Er entführt den Leser auf eine Zeitreise in die 1850er Jahre. Der Verlag der Wissenschaften verlegt historische Literatur bekannter und unbekannter wissenschaftlicher Autoren. Dem interessierten Leser werden so teilweise längst nicht mehr verlegte Werke wieder zugängig gemacht. Das vorliegende Buch ist ein unveränderter Nachdruck der historischen Originalausgabe von 1860.

My Henkelinda

Nancy Philippi

A serendipitous meeting with a young woman in a United Nations refugee camp results in a series of events that transforms the lives of all involved. Who would have guessed it could have started on a New Hampshire road late at night? Who would have guessed that a seventeen year old girl could lead her family across six international borders to escape the devastation of war? Who would have guessed that another family, whose lives were equally shattered by the same war, would find a new and rich life in a small town in the United States? Who would have guessed that an ordinary woman well past a certain age, along with lots of her friends, would have played a major role in making it all happen? Nothing went right, nothing happened easily, but it happened. This is how.

Florenz (German Edition)

Adolf Philippi

Florenz ist berühmt für seine Geschichte. Als Zentrum des mittelalterlichen europäischen Handels- und Finanzwesens war es eine der reichsten Städte des 15. und 16. Jahrhunderts. Florenz gilt als die Wiege der Renaissance. Aufgrund seiner kulturellen Bedeutung – insbesondere für die bildende Kunst – wird es schon seit dem 19. Jahrhundert auch als das „italienische Athen“ bezeichnet. Zahlreiche Kunstschaffende und Geistliche waren zur Zeit der Renaissance in Florenz beheimatet. Leonardo da Vinci verbrachte große Teile seiner Jugend in Florenz, Michelangelo lebte ebenfalls in Florenz und fand Unterschlupf in der Kirche der Medici, als Florenz durch Truppen belagert wurde. Aufgrund des künstlerischen und architektonischen Erbes hat das Forbes Magazine Florenz als eine der schönsten Städte der Welt ausgewählt. Hingewiesen wird vor allem auf den Reichtum an Museen, Palästen und Denkmälern. (Wiki) Illustriert mit 222 S/W-Abbildungen. Nachdruck der Originalauflage von 1915.
