Growing up, I never thought twice about whether there was an afterlife, or if it was possible to see into the past or the future, or how one could see things and events at a remote distance. My mother was a psychic, as was her mother and her mother’s mother before her. I knew as a child that I had inherited the “second sight”….

Zen and the Art of Home Buying

It used to be that buying a home – a house or condo – was one of the more fraught experiences we had as adults. People seem to move more frequently now, but I think for many of us it can still be stressful.

Moving the Giants: A Film of One Man’s Inspired Quest to Save Ancient Trees

Its trees were dying, and without them, human life was in jeopardy. The solution, they told him, was to clone the champion trees of the world – the largest, the hardiest, the ones that had survived millennia and were most resilient to climate change – and create a kind of Noah’s ark of tree genetics…

But instead of U.S. retailers taking favorably to the historic news, more than 60 supermarket chains are refusing to sell it in their stores–Costco now included.


Sidewalk Oracle by Robert Moss

Robert Moss’s books are always wonderful — full of mystery and creativity, magic and glimpses of other worlds. But his newest offering, Sidewalk Oracle, seems to be particularly joyful. Sub-titled “Playing with Signs, Symbols, and Synchronicity in Everyday Life,” the emphasis here is on the playing.

Ancient geoglyphs have been found in Kazakhstan. Reminiscent of crop circles, or the more famous Nazca Lines in Peru, the images, captured on Google Earth, depict over 250 giant earthworks designed to be seen from the sky. First noticed by an ardent Google Earth fan in 2007, NASA has now confirmed the pictures, and scientists from around the world are debating about the possible age and function of the man made man-made formations.
