Beautiful brain

annemichael

While waiting for the snow to evaporate and melt, the gardener experiences agitation; the days are longer–it must be time to plant seeds…but the soil is too wet and too cold.

Fortunately, there are always books! I have read Daniel Dennett on religion, George Lakoff on the embodied basis for philosophy, and am plowing rapidly through Ruth Whippman’s (acerbic and very funny) America the Anxious.  Also I am slowly savoring an anthology of Jewish women’s poems, The Dybbuk of Delight, that I randomly discovered in the library.

beautifulbrainbook04-1080x644 But here’s a book I want to own, when I can justify more book purchases: Beautiful Brain: the Drawings of Santiago Ramon y Cajal, because Art! because Neuroscience! because Beauty! The blog Hyperallergic says the drawings are going to be touring museums (see The Dynamic Brain Drawings of the Father of Neuroscience), which might also become a must-do…

USA: International kidnapping in same-sex custody fight brings 3-year prison term

ABP World Group - Parental Kidnapping & Parental Abduction Recovery.

Isabella Miller-Jenkins. Missing Since Jan 1, 2010.

For Phil Fairbanks storysource

Isabella Miller-Jenkins’ journey into the national spotlight began with a car ride to Buffalo when she was 7.

It also began with a high-profile, same-sex custody battle and a conspiracy to help her biological mother flee the country with her.

Seven years later, the conspiracy and that initial car ride are sending Virginia businessman Philip Zodhiates to prison for three years.

Convicted by a federal jury in Buffalo of taking part in an international parental kidnapping, Zodhiates was one of three men accused of orchestrating Lisa A. Miller’s escape to a Mennonite community in Nicaragua. She and Isabella, now 14, have never been found by authorities.

Jenkins, who took the witness stand in the case last year…

Swedish Doctors Charge White Helmets with Medical Malpractice and Abuse of Children

Fig Trees and Vineyards

[ Ed. note – How far and to what lengths would those backing terrorists in Syria go in trying to achieve their objectives? Would it include drugging, and perhaps even killing, innocent children for the purpose of making propaganda videos? The answer to that seems to be yes if we go by the conclusions of Swedish medical experts who have examined a White Helmets video. You can go here to read an article by Prof Marcello Ferrada de Noli, chairman of the Swedish Doctors for Human Rights, and here to read about the group’s findings in a commentary published today at 21st Century Wire. Below is an excerpt from the latter. ]

Letterboxes and handbags

LET ME BE FRANK

letterboxletterbox-1letterbox-2letterbox-3

I know! What was I thinking? But it’s a scary prospect, fishing a weta and a spider out of a letterbox. What if they run up your arm?

I just came across a card from my grandmother who died 18 months ago and felt sad that that was the last one we’d receive. On the news the other day I heard that postage was going up because nobody was sending letters anymore and it was unsustainable. Letters were dying out along with my grandmothers’ generation. Of course we still communicate, copiously, but there is no longer that paper record of your intimate thoughts and feelings at a particular point of time – words chosen for an audience of one, rather than the group audiences that social media provides. I salvaged a lot of Katherine Mansfield’s dialogue in my book from her letters. I wonder how future biographers will go about…
