Books are my travel companions

Empathy is really important… Only when our clever brain and our human heart work together in harmony can we achieve our true potential.

Right now I am reading Buddha’s Brain by R. Hanson with R. Mendius – a Ph.D. and an MD.     The theory that if you can change your brain, you can change your life has intrigued me. Neuroscience has progressed significantly in recent years. This tome not only shows effective ways to develop real happiness in our lives, but also explains physiologically how and why they work.  Interesting.

Literature deserves its prestige for one reason above all others – because it’s a tool to help us live and die with a little bit more wisdom, goodness, and sanity.

Morning mist on the hills in Blackberry Winter

Brevard NC Near my home Early Morning Mist

I marvel at the beauty of this area often. Watching the   changes from day to day interests me. This day I watched it minute by minute as the plumes of mist crept slowly up the valley between two hills. We had a cold snap after a rain. Here the name for this yearly cold snap is called blackberry winter because it is when the blackberry bushes bloom. I can now be sure that spring warmth will follow and it is safe to plant.
