Image of Virginia Woolf on the Kindle 2

This is one of the many images that appears on the device when you turn if off, and stays on the device (with no additional use of power) until you turn it on again.

And you wonder why people are not taking you seriously?

From an e-mail (my emphasis)

First off, I hope you had the most beautiful and love-drenched Valentine's weekend imaginable, so that your every breath was a sigh of happiness and every heartbeat a canter of joy at the sweet and brilliant wonderment of life. :) Thank you, all, for all your amazing hearts and the hard, hard work they do. (Thub-dub.)

This week's free gifty, from Gaia's latest sponsor, isn't about your heart, though. It's about your brain (though yes, yes, it's true those two systems can't really be separated!). If you click below, the lovely people at Centerpointe will send you a free demonstration CD of the Holosync program, an audio technology that induces the same brainwaves or brain state found in deep meditation.

I know there's already all manner of Gaians devoted to the Holosync system, but for those of you who haven't yet tried it's a lovely offer and a wonderful way to taste a profound meditative experience. :)

So because last weekend you tended to your heart, this next one (or maybe the next; I'm not sure how long it'll take to get all the freebies delivered) you can spend with your mind. After all, whose brain doesn't need a little soothing once and a while?

To all your theta brain states and the heartbeats (thub-dub!) that make them possible,

global economic turmoil outpace terrorism as most urgent threat facing the United States

As I said earlier (LINK), we're not safe. And the new director of national intelligence in the United States said just that when he "told Congress on Thursday that global economic turmoil and the instability it could ignite had outpaced terrorism as the most urgent threat facing the United States." (NYTimes LINK)

The ideas promulgated by the previous U.S. administration that our boys (and girls) overseas will take care of the bad guys, and that our job was just to keep on doing what we've been doing . . . so much nonsense.
