Mind! Brain! Mind! Brain!

In recent years I have become most interested in states of consciousness, neurobiology, and the effects of meditative attention to breath. Imagine my delight to find all three interests artfully addressed by Jeff Warren in The Head Trip . I can't recommend this one highly enough. There just aren't that many folks out there who can successfully combine humour and science like this guy. Trust me, you'll never think the same way again about your dreams again.

And Now For Something Completely Different

True confessions: I spend far too much of my computer time surfing sites like Etsy. I struggle with balancing my consumption level (and my finances) but some cute things are awfuly difficult to resist. Today's cute thing, however, embodies the best of both worlds: The RolyPig Composter .

And as much as I love getting close the the earth, rolling a pig around the yard sure beats turning compost with a shovel. Here's hoping Santa brings us one.
