Gaia is the word for "unity-of-life-processes". The experiment here is to unify the various threads of voice and sense of self together into an undivided unity. Spirituality, economics, politics, science and ordinary life interleaved.

One way to find the ideal work

The 2006 Edition of Mr Bolles book "What Color Is Your Parachute?" asks an intrieging question in the context of finding the ideal work.

If you could choose three people in the world whose careers and lives and achievements you most envy and would love to emulate, who would you choose?

His book this season is summarized in one word: alternatives. Folk who have alternatives have hope for growth and change. I really appreciate the simplicity and sophistication of Mr Bolles' work.

Quote of the day:

"I'd rather be funny than wise."
-Attributed to Henry Miller.

The funny thing is, an honor good cheer is actually a powerful medicine for the soul, and so a pretty wise thing in and of itself.
