Never pass up a chance to sit down or relieve yourself.

After those last two disturbing posts, I thought it was time to focus on the beautiful, the good, the calm.
Calm.com is a great website. I like to put it on when I'm reading or meditating without even going through the free Mindfulness programs, but some of the programs are really good. They have added quite a few new scenarios over the last several months and have some gorgeous scenery. Take a few minutes and give it a try.
Terry Gross: "So when you left Mexico and were faced with a different part of the Catholic Church, did you consider going back or were you just done?"
Jorge Ramos (b. 1958): "No, I was done. I was done...once I started going to college, and once I realized that nobody really knows if there's afterlife, that there's really no explanation, no religious explanation on why children die, why children have cancer, why all the cruelty in wars happen, why all these terrible things that I've seen as a journalist. Once you realize that there's no religious explanation, then I really had no choice but to leave Catholic Church and I became an agnostic.
