An encounter with loss is a powerful thing. It awakens in you the strongest kind of hunger imaginable. A hunger for clarity. For closure For destruction For healing For reassurance For numbness Mostly, for answers that you will spend the rest of your numbered days desperately searching for. Remember Me as a Time of Day is a testament of emotion. It is an analysis into the thoughts of a grieving heart. It is about me, but it is also about you. It is about what it means to be a human being, completely and unapologetically. It is about the very obvious frailty of the human condition and how that is our biggest strength. It is the soul expressed into words on paper. It is about the certain, the random, the painful, the sudden, the permanent, the transparent and the unknown. It is a tribute to every person alive who has sailed through and submerged into the storms caused by loss. May this be your lighthouse.

Six months ago, New York restaurant owner Alexis "Lexi" Moreau walked in on her husband, Jeff, and their sous chef mixing business with pleasure. Now, Lexi is back in her hometown of St. Helena, California, rebuilding her life and hoping to turn her grandmother's patisserie into the bistro of her dreams. All she needs is luck, lots of hard work, and a way to avoid the thirty blind dates her matchmaking grandmother arranged.
Enter Marco DeLuca-Jeff's handsome, commitment-phobe best friend who has always had his sights set on Lexi. In high school, Marco convinced himself that Lexi was off-limits. And she still is, especially since Marco's family's wine business all depends on a deal with Jeff. But a fake summer romance is the perfect way for Lexi to distract the would-be suitors her grandmother has set up for her. A perfect way for Marco to realize she's the only one that ever mattered. And a perfect way to fall deliciously in love.
Allcorn and Diamond argue that the workplace has become ever more threatening to employees, and that they respond by creating psychological defenses that make the workplace ever more dysfunctional. To keep organizations competitive and sustain the value of their stock, management demands constant improvements in their employees' performance, but often the result is just the opposite of what management wants. Allcorn and Diamond explore this process in depth, and introduce a comprehensive and internally consistent, psychologically informed model of human development and behavior, one that explains for the first time the nature of the psychologically defensive workplace. In doing so, they challenge readers to think systematically about the psychological side of the workplace and to understand the importance of dealing effectively with employee defensiveness. The result is an authoritative study with valuable lessons and immediate benefits for corporate executives, and for scholars and researchers in organizational behavor in the academic community. Allcorn and Diamond's model is applicable to understanding five aspects of the workplace: first, how individuals respond to its stresses and anxieties; second, the psychologically defensive nature of interpersonal relationships at work; third, what the psychologically defensive group processes are; fourth, the dynamics of psychological defenses; and fifth, how the model is used to understand the connection of all organizations to the larger society in which they are imbedded. The authors' goal is to help management understand what actually is going on in today's workplace, the consequence of downsizing and other cost-reduction initiatives, and how important it is for management for relieve the problems they cause.
