Tattoos on the Heart – An A+ Book Review

Tattoos On The Heart 3 DEVICE RATING - paper/ink + kindle + ipod Before this book, Tattoos On The Heart - became a 3 device rated book, it sat on the bookshelf for more than a year. The title and subtitle were irresistible. Somehow relatable, yet not completely identifiable.  Until about a month ago. No desire to wear a tattoo on any part of my body, yet I can totally relate to the feeling of tattoos on my heart. And who doesn't want to experience the "power of boundless compassion?" Which for me translates into being compassion - at the crossroads

Now I Become Myself

Now I become myself. It's taken Time, many years and places; I have been dissolved and shaken, Worn other people's faces, Run madly, as if Time were there, Terribly old, crying a warning, "Hurry, you will be dead before--" (What?

The title caught my attention first as some alert flying across my the top of my computer screen - wonder what new nutritional fad this book is promoting?  Is it taking Mark Hyman's book about fat a step further by adding salt, acid, heat?  But, too busy to investigate now. While searching for food illustrators, Wendy MacNaughton came up in my search. And, there is was again, the cover of Salt Fat Acid Heat. But, on a focused mission, I didn't stop

The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled by Kit McCallum How often we must bear the challenges of life; The endless roller coaster between happiness and sorrow; The constant ups and downs of daily strife. And always the question remains .... why? Life is not an easy road for most; It twists and turns with many forks in the road, Although always, and inevitably, we are given a choice ... Do we turn to the right ... or the left? Do we take the high road ... or the low road? Do we take the easy path ... or the difficult one? Decisions
