Book Review: “Sight and Sensibility”

A few posts back I told you guys about my experiment to fix my physical vision through a combination of meditation and study of the anatomy of the eye.  This little experiment of mine started well before I picked up the book Sight and Sensibility: the ecopsychology of perception, but once I did, the validation I… Continue reading Book Review: “Sight and Sensibility”

Book Review: “The Craft of Writing”

A short while back I was searching for a good book on the art and technique of writing, not simply to write a novel or a short story, but on the art of writing itself.  Lo and behold, I found a book with a title very similar to my initial query.

Liberation is… A Trip to the Library

Today I walked around the city of Santa Monica and relished the feeling of being up and out of bed before 1 P.M. for the first time in a couple weeks.  The official reason was to do that money-juggling aerobics thing that one does when there is just barely enough money to pay rent, but… Continue reading Liberation is… A Trip to the Library
