Slowing down to greet the new year.... 

not much happening here in this rural place. Friends are gone back home and the vastness of the town is nice... the silence too and the impact of a good book and a good film, superb!

The book, is one written by Thich Nhat Hanh, "The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation". Reminding me to breathe, be present, and mindful by “nourishing the object of my attention”. And that is complex!

Then I gravitate to the television and find an amazing documentary film called “The Corporation”, definitely worth seeing again. There is something about the mix of images, the speakers and entertaining analysis which makes the information palatable…. and their psychological assessment of corporations as “psychopaths” quite effective. A synopsis of the film is available at their webpage http://www.thecorporation.com/

A parallel psychological analysis of virtual communities would also render interesting awareness. I am also enjoying looking at the literature on cyberculture and engaging in deep thought about it. Hope to get fueled into writing soon.
