Never heard of aphantasia. Remarkable that someone can still create without being able to see images in their mind. Amazing!

Fascinating (depressing) peek into the life of an overworked and underpaid NY Public Defense Attorney. The Legal Aide Society is in serious trouble.

I think this is important information, especially if you are raising young children. Makes me sad on may levels.

One of the most unique stories I have ever read for both it’s content and the way in which it was written. Exceptional. Ted Chiang’s experience was incredibly humiliating and humbling. Certainly had me cringing and glad there are no Remem monitors in my current or past life. I do remember an interview with Marilu Henner, from Taxi. She is someone who has a highly superior autobiographical memory, a rare condition that has been identified in only 100 people worldwide. I recall her saying how difficult it has been to be able to remember every detail of her entire life. She initially called it a curse but I think has managed to live with it.

Excellent interviews. When I was younger, I never missed a Walter’s interview, especially before the Academy Awards. I did not even watch this year’s show. It’s too long and celebrity now seems boorish. Walter’s was an original but at a terrific cost.
Fascinating - branding, influencers, marketing, social media. Yet, I’m so much more the old fashioned Vogue magazine era. Perhaps everyone looks back with fondness. I can see the need for an underwear company that is inclusive, for I remember thinking Victoria Secret freakish - who actually looks like that? It was like the Playboy Magazine of the underwear industry.
Mind blowing! I SO feel for the women of Korea. They are very brave. I don’t doubt they will change the system. So inspiring .
There’s a Netflix movie debuting tonight, March 8, 2023, called Good On Paper. The movie was written in response to the author’s traumatic experience with a pathological liar. Had to delve into the subject because I find it so disturbing.
This story sent me to Google. I’m freaked about pathological lying. This woman’s story is so insane when you really stop and put your feet in her shoes. Lying can really cause another person great harm. I’ve experienced gaslighting - this is next level. I would imagine making this movie a very healing process. Iliza Shlesinger is a strong woman.
Interesting if you are older and knew of Cary Grant through movies.
Really helpful in navigating the stages of a crisis. Relatable. Certainly have traveled this road many times in my life. It has helped me learn skills (deep breathing, meditation, EFT) to keep me returning to ventral at a more expedient manner.
Short but powerful. Perfection.
My mom was very affectionate and very comfortable with expressing her emotions. I don’t think I ever heard my dad say “I love you.” Fortunately, I’m unabashedly effusive. I love to love.
I can so relate to the loathing of doctor visits. I do my best preventative self care to avoid it. Our entire system needs revamping.
So inspiring! A selfless act of love - beautiful. I love when social media is used in a positive, informative way.
Wow, a compelling read from a woman of great substance. Thank God things are changing in Hollywood. Gratitude to all those courageous individuals in the #MeToo Movement.
Interesting situation and questions. And sound advice to do nothing until one is more stable and clearheaded.
Perspective is everything. As is gratitude.
Powerful, vivid, tragic.
This is amazing! Incredible how social media can sometimes be very helpful. Fantastic story.

Powerful and helpful.
Wow, I feel this is such great advice. There are many things I could quote but I’ll name the one that hit me energetically in my body - “Let go of toxic certainty.” The second one is, “…listening to understand rather than listening to solve the problem.” We need, as individuals and couples, to be both vulnerable and compassionate. And that can only happen when one feels safe, seen and heard.
My first impression is that Wulfhart is fearless. Such confidence is extremely attractive. She lives her craft which is a huge reason for her success. Authentic and inspiring, I get why she is in demand.

This is such a brilliant, empowering solution to sexual assault trauma. Truly found this so refreshing and hopeful. Any kind of mediation is preferable to a court battle that only does more harm than good. I’m thinking of divorce proceedings also.
I am thrilled to read this. As someone who loves classical music, over the years I stopped going to concerts because of the lack of innovation and new artists. To have more cultural diversity sounds like a move in the right direction. As is making it affordable.

The entire rail system is a train wreck. The financial punishment needs to be more expensive than the cost of safety measures. If I were a resident of East Palestine, I would not trust the government as far as declaring the water or air safe.

An absolute 10! Such a compelling story about an exceptional writer living under extreme conditions. The worst has finally happened - Salman Rushdie is not killed. Instead he is rendered partially blind, his typing hand severely damaged and his psyche plagued with PTSD. How will this near death experience shape him and his writing? Victim has never been in his vocabulary.

Great advice. I am going to soon be 67. So I can say with some authority that a lot of people my age blame aging as the catch all to their problems. But they will be the first to admit that they don’t eat right, exercise or have interests that bring them joy. Margareta’s advice about not being afraid/sad about aging is key. And I think the only way to feel genuinely great about it is if you have taken good care of yourself during your lifetime. It’s never to late to start.

Love this! It’s all about the fascia! I have one of those dense foam rollers. Wow, it really gets in there and relieves the tightness. You just have to initially breathe though the pain. It does get easier.

Wasn’t aware of any of this!
Captivating. Could not stop reading this but felt awful upon it’s completion. That’s exceptional writing - to feel so many different emotions. Deeply disturbing.
