Silence
It has a sound, a fullness.
It's heavy with sigh of tree,
and space between breaths.
It's ripe with pause between birdsong
and crash of surf.
It's golden they say.
But no one tells us it's addictive.

One fends for himself; the other lives large. Both face potentially life-threatening welfare issues.

Ghazal ~ The Rain

Kayhan Kaylor:  kamancheh.  Shujaat Husain Khan:  sitar, vocals.  Sandeep Das:  tabla.  Beautiful live recording, a marriage of classical Persian and Indian music.

Today's walk.  Light rain, most of the trees are starting to leaf out, their extravagant blossoms falling to the ground.  But we found this beauty.

I am picturing the google mapping satellite photos of the area...
zooming in to see the structure and seeing someone using the uncovered toilet.

Conservation is a moral issue.  It comes from the heart.

George Schaller

I first learned of George Schaller's work decades ago, when I read Peter Matthiessen's classic, The Snow Leopard.  Here is an in depth interview with Schaller, including stories of his work with the mountain gorillas in Rwanda, his thoughts on the preservation of tigers, and his most recent project, the creation of a peace park that stretches across the nations at the 'Roof of the World', Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, and China.

By focusing on large, captivating animals, Schaller has had remakable success inspiring people to protect entire ecosystems.

Scott Wallace, National Geographic

Excellent interview, with accompanying videos.  Highly recommended.

George B. Schaller shares special moments throughout his book Tibet Wild: A Naturalist's Journeys on the Roof of the World, and tells of his connections with animals in ways that can benefit others in their pursuit of animal preservation. There are more than 20 game reserves around the world ...

Live from the Basement, Videotape ~ In Rainbows

No matter what happens now
You shouldn't be afraid
Because I know today has been
The most perfect day I've ever seen

Living From the Inside Out
Introduction
"There's a crack in everything.  That's where the Light gets in."

"The light is the capacity to reconcile your experience, your sorrow, with every day that dawns.  It is that understanding, which is beyond significance or meaning, that allows you to live a life and embrace the disasters and sorrows and joys that are our common lot.  But it's with the recognition there is a crack in everything.  I think all other visions are doomed to irretrievable gloom."

~ Leonard Cohen, From Anthem

Reference for Cohen's interpretation presented to Oregonian found here:  https://drhguy.posterous.com/portland-press

I enjoy adventure travel, personal and spiritual development, photography, good books.  Am learning mindfulness meditation, and fascinated by neuroplasticity and neurobiology, Buddhism and Jung. 

I love the poetry of Neruda, Rumi, Hafiz, and Rilke, especially, Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet.  I'm a huge Pink Floyd/David Gilmore fan, as well as Leonard Cohen, Radiohead, World Music, and Bach.

Wonderful Leonard Cohen fansite: http://1heckofaguy.com/

I love Arabian horses and German Sheperd dogs

I'll enjoy your content whether it's science, neurobiology, tech, literature, writing, travel, adventure, history, health care, fitness, spirituality, art, photography, music, personal development, or current events, to name only a few topics I find interesting.  I'm am inquisitive person!

Journalist, Blogger, and Google+ writer extraordinaire AV Flox wrote an excellent post about the etiquette of commenting.  She describes a post as the post writer's salon.  I agree with her line of thinking.  Superb read, followed by great comment thread:
