How to be a (Conscious) Mountain Biker (Human Being)

I needed something light today - and this video always makes me laugh. I love mountain biking - and the mountains have been saving my ass from my own grief and sadness these last couple of months (and especially these last couple of days).

Live Long and Prosper

For a girl born into a mormon household in the 70s - Star Trek helped make Science interesting and normal - nothing "illogical" about it.

Passionate Empathy, Feminine Energy, and Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende: I think that the time is ripe to make fundamental changes in our civilization. But for real change, we need feminine energy in the management of the world. We need a critical number of women in positions of power, and we need to nurture the feminine energy in men. I'm talking about men with young minds, of course. Old guys are hopeless; we have to wait for them to die off. (Laughter) Yes, I would love to have Sophia Loren's long legs and legendary breasts. But given a choice, I would rather have the warrior hearts of Wangari Maathai, Somaly Mam, Jenny and Rose Mapendo. I want to make this world good. Not better, but to make it good. Why not? It is possible. Look around in this room -- all this knowledge, energy, talent and technology. Let's get off our fannies, roll up our sleeves and get to work, passionately, in creating an almost perfect world. Thank you.

Getting to the Root can be Fun!

I like exploring, and will try just about anything at least once. Of course, once I find something I like, I get into going deeper. ( I geek out). I like working/playing with the chakra system. After leading a few Writing the Energetic Body workshops, I have found that many people get almost weighed down ...

Henry Rollins Humor

A few weeks back, I posted some videos of Henry Rollins. He is a very serious guy. "My Talking Henry Rollins!" doll by Down the Show is a beautiful contrast to Rollins' stern personality.

Saturday Morning Mod Psychedelia with Noel Fielding

I needed to take a moment (or several moments) and indulge myself in some weirdness today. I think I might go fly a kite now. Happy Memorial Weekend.

Carol, Star Trek, and Neptune – where are your planets?

I love Carol Burnett. I don't remember this sketch at all. But it makes me wonder, with Neptune about to move into Pisces, will the world see a "feminine" shift . . .
