It’s a happy thing that Mindfulness – a state of active, open attention on the present – has lately attracted a lot of attention, especially in technology circles. Among the companies embracing mindfullness is Google, which had an unusual opportunity to demonstrate its commitment. writes about it here. I'm kind of impressed.
I'll take the blame for beating the parents into taking the kids to the library every week, and I have polluted their little brains (which is what one of their English teachers called it) with Octavia Butler books full of racism and sex and gore, and generally teaching them about and giving them adult-level books that hold their interest even as the school try to teach them that reading is a chore. (Heh heh heh)
At one time I considered myself to be a right leaning Independent. Since then I have learned that most of the people voting on the right are half whits who haven't got the least understanding of what their party really stands for. They courted the religious right and the mainstream bigot and now the party is a bad joke. The morons ruined the party, they are damaging the country badly, and decent people who would like to vote for conservative values and fiscal responsibility no longer have a party they can identify with. So the GOP now rapidly opposes the exact solution they advocated for over two decades Thank you for destroying the party.
