Read from May 29 to July 17, 2011

An illuminating read. Not a page turner, but a book to read slowly and ponder the amazing differences between my life and the lives of those who lived only a scant one or two hundred years ago. I will never again flip on a switch cavalierly. And I will be careful to switch it off again with the hope that someday we can all see the stars that once were.

2/23/12 Interesting article on sleep that sheds light on our sleep patterns and the effect nighttime lighting has made on our lives. "The myth of the eight-hour sleep" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-16...
