Danvers by Rebecca McNutt
"Things take a turn for the worst for Mrs. Dawes and her edgy teenage son when they agree to spend a night at an abandoned insane asylum. A little of Shutter Island and a little of Exhibit A both get thrown in here, but it's still a very original n..." Read more of this review »

“If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room.”

Zhuangzi
“The effect of life in society is to complicate and confuse our existence, making us forget who we really are by causing us to become obsessed with what we are not.”
Zhuangzi, Chuang Tsu: Inner Chapters

Peter Wohlleben
“Willows produce the defensive compound salicylic acid, which works in much the same way. But not on us. Salicylic acid, is a precursor of aspirin, and tea made from willow bark can relieve headaches and bring down fevers. Such defense mechanisms, of course, take time.”
Peter Wohlleben, The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World

Peter Wohlleben
“Trees don't rely exclusively on dispersal in the air, for if they did, some neighbors would not get wind of the danger. Dr. Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver has discovered that they also warn each other using chemical signals sent through the fungal networks around their root tips, which operate no matter what the weather. Surprisingly, news bulletins are sent via the roots not only by means of chemical compounds but also by means of electrical impulses that travel at the speed of a third of an inch per second. In comparison with our bodies, it is, admittedly, extremely slow. However there are species in the animal kingdom, such as jellyfish and worms, whose nervous systems conduct impulses at similar speed. Once the latest news has been broadcast, all oaks int he area promptly pump tannins through their veins.”

“Trees, it turns out, have a completely different way of communicating: they use scent.”
