I found it fascinating to read about how connective tissue can impact your physical functioning. That said, in order to do the exercises needed you need to learn a lot and purchase a few things before you can do 10 minutes a day. I think this would b ...more

"Another fantastic entry in the best fantasy series going. The characters were deepened, the plot was as engaging as usual, and the writing is top-notch. This book is filled with passages I want to keep revisiting because they so perfectly and eloq..." Read more of this review »

Zora Neale Hurston
“She stood there until something fell off the shelf inside her. Then she went inside there to see what it was. It was her image of Jody tumbled down and shattered. But looking at it she saw that it never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams. Just something she had grabbed up to drape her dreams over.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Kurt Vonnegut
“Everything is nothing, with a twist.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Samuel Pepys
“Strange to see how a good dinner and feasting reconciles everybody.”
Samuel Pepys, The Diary of Samuel Pepys: A Selection

Aldous Huxley
“It’s dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.

I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig.
Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me.
When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic.
No rhetoric, no tremolos,
no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell.
And of course, no theology, no metaphysics.
Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light.

So throw away your baggage and go forward.
There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet,
trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair.
That’s why you must walk so lightly.
Lightly my darling,
on tiptoes and no luggage,
not even a sponge bag,
completely unencumbered.”
Aldous Huxley, Island

Martha N. Beck
“Emotional discomfort, when accepted, rises, crests and falls in a series of waves. Each wave washes a part of us away and deposits treasures we never imagined. Out goes naivete, in comes wisdom; out goes anger, in comes discernment; out goes despair, in comes kindness. No one would call it easy, but the rhythm of emotional pain that we learn to tolerate is natural, constructive and expansive... The pain leaves you healthier than it found you.”
Martha N. Beck
