It's snowing but there's thunder and lightning. What a winter we've been having here! I took the above photo a few weeks back -- a starburst of icicles in the brutal cold. Today was pretty much about laying in supplies as maybe I'll be snowed in. A new review of mine is online as of today at New Age Journal -- it's about finding true contentment through Zen and mindfulness. I'm just mindful of the snow right now!

I confess. The lure of short, 140-word character missives on Twitter has caused me to stop blogging. Happily, I picked it up again just in the past week or so. Thanks to Robert of New Age Journal, I'd had two reviews published in a week. One was for the insightful Being with Animals: Why We Are Obsessed with the Furry, Scaly, Feathered Creatures Who Populate Our World by Barbara J. King. The other was for what has seemingly become my personal soundtrack, A New Day: Laya Project Remixed.

A New Day is remarkable in that after the devastating tsunami of December 2004, villagers began to rebuild and along the way, some recordings were made of their regional folk music. This was then remixed by urban DJs. I especially liked the hip hop Salutation to the Sun

I think I will take up reviewing again and next in line is an oracle deck that just looks like a lot of fun. Winter is a time for hiberation and what better cold weather activity than hunkering down with some good music and a book?

P.S. The photo is of my sweet cat & his hat, Lil' PC.
