Cuban Percussionist and Vocalist Pedrito Martinez: A Look Back on the Journey Thus Far

2017-02-08-1486580094-5061721-PedritoCover6copy.jpg

By Dan Ouellette, Senior Editor ZEALnyc, February 9, 2017

Unless something unexpected happens (and given this political season, it’s a great possibility), 2017 will fill the air with more Cuban music by the best the island nation has to offer. Cuba has quickly become a destination for musical talent in the U.S. in search of the source of all popular music today. And then there are the U.S.-based artists who are celebrating the bridge being reopened between the two countries. A prime example: percussionist/vocalist Pedrito Martinez who has performed with a range of artists searching for top-tier percussion including Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Eddie Palmieri, Paquito D’Rivera and Bruce Springsteen. He is also lauded by the great Latin jazz star Rubén Blades, who says, “In a musical world so filled with counterfeit output, it is refreshing to see a genuine talent like Pedrito emerge. Always curious, forever searching, restless, he’s the type of artist whose product is forever fresh and vital.”

Pedrito, who calls New Jersey home these days, grew up in Cuba, was schooled in the Afro-Cuban tradition in the streets of his barrio, made the journey to the U.S. through his prowess on the congas, then returned to his homeland a few years ago to record his latest album…a true sign that the thaw has begun.

360 Degrees Longitude: One Family’s Journey Around the World

360 Degrees Longitude: One Family’s Journey Around the World


Much more than a travel narrative 360 Degrees Longitude: One Family’s Journey Around the World is a glimpse at what it means to be a global citizen”-a progressively changing view of the world as seen through the eyes of an American family of four. After more than a decade of planning, John Higham and his wife September bid their high-tech jobs and suburban lives good-bye, packed up their home and set out with two children, ages eight and eleven, to travel around the world. In the course of the next 52 weeks they crossed 24 time zones, visited 28 countries and experienced a lifetime of adventures. Making their way across the world, the Highams discovered more than just different foods and cultures; they also learned such diverse things as a Chilean mall isn’t the best place to get your ears pierced, and that elephants appreciate flowers just as much as the next person. But most importantly, they learned about each other, and just how much a family can weather if they do it together.360 Degrees Longitude employs Google’s wildly popular Google Earth as a compliment to the narrative. Using your computer you can spin the digital globe to join the adventure cycling through Europe, feeling the cold stare of a pride of lions in Africa, and breaking down in the Andes. Packed with photos, video and text, the online Google Earth companion adds a dimension not possible with mere paper and ink. Fly over the terrain of the Inca Trail or drill down to see the majesty of the Swiss Alps-without leaving the comfort of your chair.

My Journey Through The Amazon With The Team Of ‘Years Of Living Dangerously’

Over the course of ten days in June 2016, I traveled to the Brazilian Amazon to film an episode for “Years Of Living Dangerously,” the National Geographic documentary series about climate change. You can watch my full story on Wednesday, November 16th at 10 p.m. ET on the National Geographic Channel.

June 1: Cristalino Eco-Lodge, Cristalino State Park, Mato Grosso State, Brazil

Today was not my typical workday. It was over 95 degrees, humid, and I was following a man holding a machete that I had never met into the jungle. My outfit included padded shin guards to protect me from snakebites. As I walked, the former miner-turned-environmentalist guide named Francisco was giving me a quick safety briefing: don’t veer off the path, don’t go in the nearby river with open cuts and don’t feed the monkeys, no matter how cute. “Why can’t I swim with open cuts?” I asked. “Because open cuts can get infected and because the cuts also attract piranhas.he explained. No, this was definitely not my typical workday.

Where was I? I was walking through a dense forest on the Cristalino Reserve in the Brazilian Amazon. The guide at the front of our group, the one wielding a machete, was helping to clear our path of low-hanging vines, thorny branches and fallen logs. Suddenly, he stopped. “I want to show you something,” he said, as he guided me towards an absolutely massive tree that six or more adults could encircle. “This tree is about 800 years old,” he tells me. “It has lived through more of the world than any of us ever will.”

Our destination was a 165-foot tall observation tower that allowed me to climb up through the forest’s layers, past the canopy, for a bird’s-eye view of this small piece of the Amazon. Until now, I had been so focused on the beauty of our hike – and on avoiding snakes – that I hadn’t focused on my fear of heights. The tower is sturdy, but it vibrated and shook a little as I slowly made my way to the top. As I climbed, it helped to focus on the fact that someone was waiting for me up there, a renowned Brazilian scientist named Antonio Nobre who I’ve been a fan of and wanted to meet for some time. 

Even if you live in New York, you are benefiting indirectly from the invisible functions the Amazon performs to sustain the Earth.
Brazilian scientist Antonio Nobre

Once I made it to the top of the tower, I looked around and saw mist coming up through the trees. I heard the amazing sounds of the forest; the Macaws along with lots of other kinds of birds I’d never seen before flew over me. It was breathtaking! It’s easy to feel entirely remote up there and surreally disconnected from the rest of the world beyond the tree line. Yet, Nobre explained how misguided – and ultimately damaging – that type of thinking can be. He pointed out how the things that happen here significantly impact the rest of the world.

He explained to me that, “Even if you live in New York, you are benefiting indirectly from the invisible functions the Amazon performs to sustain the Earth. There are all of these invisible systems that are critical to the environment and have an immense impact. The forest is providing all of these crucial services to us for free; we don’t have to pay for them. We gain the benefits, but because they are invisible, we unfortunately tend not to value them as much as we should.” 

He explained that one of the functions of the rainforest is to be the  “lungs of the world,” absorbing greenhouse gases. In addition, the forest absorbs groundwater through its roots and releases it in invisible streams – what Antonio called flying rivers – that help in cooling the Earth’s atmosphere. “When they do this,” he says, “same way as when you’re sweating then cool down, trees cool down the surface. They’re like air conditioners.”

“If you lose the Amazon,”he told me, “you lose a critical function of the rainforest that moderates the world’s climate by pumping and filtering ― cleaning and breathing for the entire planet.”

June 3: Alta Floresta, Mato Grosso State, Brazil

I now had a better idea of just how much is at stake in the fight to protect the Amazon. Next up was to find out what’s driving its destruction. Especially because I had heard that after decades of decline, overall rates of Amazon deforestation are on the rise again.

To learn more, I went to nearby Alta Floresta, or “High Forest,” a city that was covered with trees when founded in 1976, but now, sadly, is almost entirely deforested. In the past, the government encouraged people to come to the Amazon and exploit it. The city’s progression from a forested area to a deforested one in the 1980s and ‘90s made it notable, albeit in a negative way. The nickname reflects its high deforestation rates: “Falta Floresta” or “Lacking Forest.” Alta Floresta’s story, I discovered, is not unique in this region, and even as some have made efforts to reforest some of its cleared areas, newer cities and towns are driving deforestation around it.

To get a better sense of why this is happening, I met with Paulo Adario, the Brazilian director of Greenpeace’s Amazon program, who took me up in a small plane to fly over the region. This perspective was different from Cristalino, where I’d gotten the impression that the forest stretched on forever. As we moved further and further away from the reserve’s borders, I realized how mistaken I was in my impression of an infinite forest; the landscape below was a mosaic of large cleared areas cut out of the forest. The extent of this devastation was heartbreaking.

Adario told me that we were actually in the middle of the “Arc of Deforestation,” a crescent shaped belt of largely deforested land that passes through Brazil’s northern Mato Grosso and southern Pará states where nearly half the world’s tropical deforestation takes place. Protected areas like Cristalino and indigenous reserves like the nearby Xingu National Park represented some of the most effective buffers against encroaching deforestation, though even they are not immune to illegal activity on their lands. What is driving these trends? “People don’t deforest because they hate trees,” Adario told me. “They deforest because they can make money.” There are many causes: mining, logging, infrastructure projects like roads and mega-dams to name a few. What is the number one reason for deforestation in Brazil? Adario pointed out of the plane’s window to some white blobs: Cattle. “They are responsible for 65 percent of all deforestation in the Amazon…and 14.5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions,” he told me.

I had a flashback to my family’s dinner table growing up in Rio Grande do Sul in the south of Brazil. Eating meats and especially beef. They were a central part of our daily meal routine. Meat is still a staple in Brazilians’ diet and around the world. On this trip I have learned we cannot continue to eat the same way. If we don’t make changes, the future generations won’t have the same abundance of natural resources.

June 5: Novo Progresso, Pará State, Brazil

Being with Adario in Alta Floresta revealed how much we already know about what’s driving deforestation in the Amazon and endangering our climate. The flyover showed we also know where the worst destruction is taking place, both legally and illegally. Unfortunately, deforestation is back on the rise. The logical next question is why can’t we stop it?

To find out more, I’ve crossed the border from Mato Grosso State to neighboring Pará to visit a place that many consider the prime example of Brazil’s “Wild West” – a frontier town called Novo Progresso or “New Progress,” which was elevated to the category of Municipality  only in 1991. The city is located on the roadside of BR-163. This roadway is of fundamental importance for the flow of Brazilian production. It is right at the edge of the rain forest’s borders. Novo Progresso, which has about 25,000 inhabitants, appears to have many legalized timber companies in its surrounding areas. As we drove along BR-163, I saw many of them on both sides of the road. I don’t understand how that is even possible – how can they authorize the operation of timber companies inside of protected areas?

Business in remote Novo Progresso, a place I’d never heard of, seems to be booming. Given what I’m seeing, the industries driving the growth are the same ones Adario said are placing the most pressure on this irreplaceable forest. In the battle to save the Amazon, it is clear that Novo Progresso is on the front lines, divided between those whose living depends on exploiting the forest and those whose living revolves around defending it.

I went to meet one of the defenders of the rainforest. We turned off the city’s main road and onto a dusty side street; we stopped in front of a single-story building with a guarded perimeter. We had arrived at the local outpost of Brazil’s environmental police, IBAMA. Inside, there were several armed men dressed in camouflage lounging on wooden benches. I was one of very few women there, but not for long. I was told that the “Blonde Devil” was to arrive soon. It appeared she was coming straight from a raid on an illegal logging camp.

Maria Luiza Souza, known by those she chases as the “Blonde Devil,” is a senior IBAMA official in charge of surveillance operations for the region. Her accomplished reputation precedes her. Her success has not only earned her notoriety and her nickname, it has also shockingly earned her a price on her head. Bravely, despite the repeated threats to her life, Souza refuses to back down.

“Why is it so hard to stop illegal deforestation, especially when we often know where it’s happening?” I asked her.

“We are blind during the rainy season in the Amazon,” she told me. “Why; because it’s too cloudy for the satellites to capture quality images of the forest.  During this period, the deforestation runs rampant.” She explained, “That even when armed with good imaging, the remoteness of many Amazon locations means it can take hours, or even days, for law enforcement officials to arrive on site. This can give criminals a sufficient head start to do their damage and disappear without getting caught.”

“There is no accountability,” Souza continued. “Criminals see that they can profit from crimes without big consequences… so they continue them… [and] there’s still demand. There’s a market for buying illegal cattle… and illegal timber from the Amazon. As long as there’s [cheap] supply, people will buy it.”

“I first came to Novo Progresso in 2007 and nothing has improved in this city. Nothing,” Souza replies. “The environmental crimes don’t improve the city, they don’t improve living conditions in Novo Progresso. Nothing stays for the community. They are plundering the Amazon [and] Novo Progresso has not developed at all. It should be called Novo Regresso,” she finished.

Despite the fact that IBAMA needs more resources to cover the vast territory, it was clear that Souza and her IBAMA team continue doing critical work to reduce the region’s criminal activity and defend the Amazon from illegal destruction. It was clear after speaking with her that IBAMA enforces the laws put in place by the government but would benefit from the additional support of more environmental police. There are two other points to be considered in this fight:  law enforcement needs to hold criminals accountable and there needs to be policy incentives to promote less destructive industries overall.

Brazil’s economy is struggling and its government is under fire. As a result, budgets are being slashed and compromises are being made.

June 7: Brasilia, Federal District

I arrived from the Amazon to Brasilia, Brazil’s capital, triggering a bit of culture shock. After days of high heat and higher humidity, dirt roads and lush forests, the city’s dry savanna climate, famous modernist architecture and sweeping boulevards felt like an entirely different world.

It is a tense time for my country. Brazil’s economy is struggling and its government is under fire. As a result, budgets are being slashed and compromises are being made in an effort to restore short-term growth and national stability. The country is at a crossroads for how to move forward and jumpstart its economy once again. What does this all mean for the Amazon? As we drove by the beautiful architecture of Brasilia and the National Congress buildings, I wondered how many of the country’s political leaders have visited the rainforest.

To find out more, I arranged to meet with Senator Katia Abreu from the state of Tocantins, a major player in the negotiation of the country’s new forest code. A rancher herself, she is the former president of Brazil’s Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock as well as the country’s former Minister of Agriculture, a role she held until just three weeks before my arrival.

Brazil made a commitment at COP21, in Paris, to halt all illegal deforestation by 2030. Given that the forest is under siege now and it’s only 2016, this seems a long way off, so I ask her: “Why wait until 2030? Why not now?”

“Because you need tools to reduce deforestation,” she told me. “It is not the case that you say ‘stop’ and suddenly, with a magic wand, everything stops…we fight against it every day. We made a promise for 2020, and now a new promise for 2030. It is a promise we are striving to keep.”

I told her that I saw a lot of clear land and that I was shocked with the size of the devastation. I asked her if it is possible for Brazil to grow without having to cut more trees. She says yes, but then she explained “Brazil carries a huge responsibility on its shoulders.” Abreu continued telling me that the Food and Agriculture Organization expect Brazil to increase its production 40 percent by 2050 ― more than any other country ― to feed the world’s growing population.   “Meats and soy are the most important products in our commercial balance,” she told me. “In general, not only the meat industry but all segments of agriculture, of Brazilian agribusiness, have saved Brazil in this [economic] crisis…”

I learned agriculture is important for Brazil and more soy will be needed to feed more cattle to combat world hunger. How can the expansion in production be managed so that it will put less pressure on Brazil’s forests and not endanger the indigenous and riverside communities that live and depend on the rainforest?

June 8: Memorial of Indigenous Peoples, Brasilia, Federal District

The Memorial of Indigenous Peoples in Brasilia is a round, spiral structure that the famed architect Oscar Niemeyer created from inspiration he found in the traditional village structures of the Yanomami Indians in Brazil’s north. The memorial is a symbolic tribute to Brazil’s diversity and wealth of indigenous cultures. Today, the memorial serves as a grave reminder of the highest stakes possible in the fight to protect the Amazon ― human stakes.

I walked slowly past the memorial’s displays of indigenous artifacts as I spoke with Sonia Guajajara, the national coordinator of Brazil’s Association of Indigenous Peoples. She is a key spokeswoman for the country’s indigenous movement.

“Look Gisele,” she told me, “here in Brazil, we live under enormous pressure from the development model that’s been adopted. It’s based on the expansion of agribusiness, the planting of crops like soy, and on animal agriculture that uses huge expanses of pasture to raise livestock… Everything is in the name of increasing production to expand the economy, not considering the lives and the social rights of the people living there.”

The perception throughout Brazil that indigenous and environmental interests can’t be aligned with national economic goals has elevated tensions between indigenous communities, activists, loggers and ranchers in the Amazon to deadly levels.

Last year, Sonia’s indigenous territory, Arariboia, suffered from a forest fire that burned more than half of its 413,000 hectares. It was a massively destructive blaze – and it may have been arson. Ninety percent of Brazil’s forest fires are caused by human actions, intentionally set in areas of conflict to force people to vacate protected land.

“We are living in a moment of great global transformation,” says Sonia, “where all those who do not incorporate themselves into this system are seen as an inconvenience and embarrassment because of our age-old and harmonious relationship with nature, where land is a sacred good and not merchandise, where rivers represent life, and the forest is our protector. In the name of economic development, all of this is threatened.”

As a self-described “conscious citizen,” Sonia says her mission is to get people to care about the Amazon, indigenous people and their rights. This made me think about my own role as a conscious citizen. How can I inspire others to care – and do – more to help the incredible people I’ve met and places I’ve seen here? I want to show that environmental conservation does not slow or impede economic development and that we need to find sustainable ways to use the forest’s richness without destroying it.

We cannot pretend it isn’t happening and that we have nothing to do with it.

June 10: Boston, Massachusetts

Back with my family and friends in Boston, I have so much on my mind. I have been humbled by the opportunity to have this experience and learn so much. I wanted to tell them about the Amazon’s overwhelming importance to the earth and the beauty. Before this trip, I would have focused on the physical beauty, its rich biodiversity, describing the colors, sounds, foliage and animals that I was fortunate enough to witness. Beauty is so often thought of as only something visible. I realized that the Amazon forest goes much beyond its physical beauty. There are invisible treasures, the interconnected systems, like Nobre’s flying rivers that give life to all other treasures. Everything I’ve learned on this trip to the Amazon further affirms my central belief, that we – and everything around us – are connected. Just as the Amazon rainforest is connected with the world’s climate, the foods we choose to eat connect back to it and its long-term sustainability, too. Every choice we make has consequences and we are the only ones responsible for them and the only ones who can change them. We cannot pretend it isn’t happening and that we have nothing to do with it.

I recall something Sonia Guajajara said in Brasilia, “people think that because they are living in the United States, in Europe, or on any other continent, they believe they are separate, that they have nothing to do with what happens here [in Brazil]. The world is round, isn’t it? It spins. What happens here happens to everyone. The importance of having the forest preserved, conserved, is that it is going to benefit everybody.”

If we willingly ignore how interconnected we are, the Amazon’s incredible treasures will disappear and so, too, will life as we know it.

We can’t let that happen.

Gisele Bündchen is a Brazilian-born model and Ambassador for the UN Environmental Program, who can next be seen as a correspondent for the National Geographic documentary series Years of Living Dangerously on Wednesday, November 16th at 10 p.m. ET on the National Geographic Channel.

Watch Syria’s Piano Man Sing Along His Harrowing Journey To Europe

Four years of brutal civil war in Syria could not keep Ayham Ahmad from singing. Neither could his harrowing voyage to Europe.

The 27-year-old musician fled Syria and took a rubber dinghy from Turkey to Greece last week. As soon as he arrived on the shores of Europe, he sat down in front of the waves and began to sing of his home — the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk near Damascus.

“Europe is a land of freedom. Now that I’m in Europe I can continue to keep singing about life in Yarmouk and the people who live there,” he told The WorldPost after he arrived on the Greek island of Lesbos.

As he trekked across the Balkans, trying to find a safe route to enter Austria, he reprised the ballads to Yarmouk that he once sang on the camp’s war-shattered streets.

On Monday, Ahmad made it to Austria, the country of Mozart and Schubert. The same day, he came across a piano made by historic Austrian instrument-maker Bösendorfer in Vienna and sat down to play a song about Yarmouk.

“Yarmouk is in my heart, and it will remain in my thoughts and in my music,” he wrote on Facebook that day. “We will keep on singing.”

Ahmad arrived in Germany on Tuesday, where he hopes to find a better life and provide for his wife, two young children and elderly parents back in Syria.

On his first day in Munich, he got a German volunteer at the refugee reception center to join him on guitar as he sang stories of Yarmouk to the other refugees. He posted another video of him playing the piano in Munich on Thursday, wishing everyone well for the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha.

For years, Ahmad has posted videos of his recitals amid the ruins of Yarmouk to draw attention to the plight of the camp’s besieged residents. Earlier this year, Ahmad’s piano was burned by Islamist militants as he tried to move it out of the camp.

As he finally fled the country, Ahmad has meticulously documented his voyage on Facebook, and provided further materials to The WorldPost for a diary of his voyage.

“To speak the language of music is better than speaking English, Arabic, German, Dutch, Russian, Serbian and Bulgarian,” Ahmad wrote on Facebook from Munich on Wednesday.​ “This is what I felt through the interaction with foreigners on my journey to Germany.”

7 Things I Learned on My Journey to True Love

2015-08-19-1439995202-2034426-IMG_7933.jpegAs you may have heard, I met the love of my life through The Huffington Post. Who knew a mouthy manifesto I wrote after a bad post-divorce date would lead me to my very own Magic Mike, a man who makes me giggle like a school girl on HuffPost Live?

Honestly, being struck by lightening and resuscitated by Channing Tatum himself would have seemed more in the realm of possibility.

You see, I have had a black cloud stalking me for decades. At 42, I have done it all… dating (high school, college, adult… oh my!), flings, short-and long-term relationships, tripping down the aisle. Nursing a shattered heart, I convinced myself that I gave birth to the man who would piece me back together. I flirted. I dated. I dreamed. But I didn’t think my soulmate was in the forecast.

Here’s seven things I learned on my terrifyingly dark, unpaved third world country type of road to happiness (chock full of I-need-a-barf-bag-to-deal-with-twists-and-turns moments).

1. It happens when you least expect it. It’s so annoying but it’s so true. If you told me my dream guy would read my post, which was basically designed to rip men a collective new a$ $ , and relate to my rant enough to craft a thoughtful response, I would have laughed. Hell, I would have scoffed. Cackled, maybe. But that’s exactly what happened.

2. Be fierce. Repeatedly striking out in love is a gift. When you f*ck up, you lose your fear of failure. Empowered by my perfectly imperfect track record, I was unabashedly myself when I met Mike. I didn’t sacrifice one ounce of who I am and he adores me anyway.

3. Be open (just not in a prostitute kind of way). Date against type, my friends. I am infatuated with a man I would have discounted under traditional dating circumstances. I am a serial plant killer and he is a gardner extraordinaire. Come football season, we will be screaming for different teams in our living room. We will definitely vote for sparring politicians. But, wow, the synergy, the sparks, the soulful love we have is undeniable.

4. Kiss frogs. Come on now, don’t be shy. Every single frog — even the wart covered ones who get off hearing themselves ribbit — are a value add. They teach you about yourself if you listen. They bring you closer to your proverbial prince.

5. It’s cosmic. Finding true love is a spiritual awakening. It’s intuitive. You just know. When you cross paths with your soulmate, love blooms faster than a celebrity dons extensions after a bad haircut. It’s involuntary.

A soul connection differs from a honeymoon phase type of giddiness. The person is a natural extension of you, without warning, without effort, without compromise. The attraction is wild. When you hold hands, there’s an electric current, there’s a perfect fit. The amount of time you’ve been together doesn’t matter; the time you spent apart does.

6. Haters exist. Some people despise happy endings. They don’t believe in fairytales. Others are jealous. I have a friend who has been dismissive about my relationship since the beginning. Readers have left dozens of negative comments. I knew the first time I spoke to Mike that he was like no other. He understood me without explanation. Trust your gut, the telltale signs, the palpable energy. Haters be damned.

7. Live in hope. I have paid my misery dues for a lifetime. I buried my beautiful mom and filed for divorce months later. I have been lied to, spit on, let down. I have felt excruciating pain. I have been emotionally abandoned. I have lost. I ended relationships that weren’t right even though I knew I would be criticized for my choices. Despite everything, I always basked in the rays of hope. I believed in brighter tomorrows. And, finally, my day has come.

A Journey to the Centre of the Earth: Illustrated

A Journey to the Centre of the Earth: Illustrated


A Journey to the Centre of the Earth: Illustrated By Jules Verne; with 56 illustrations by Édouard Riou; the translation is by Frederick Amadeus Malleson. Journey to the Centre of the Earth has been consistently praised for its style and vision of the world. It explores the prehistory of the globe, but can also be read as a psychological quest, for the journey itself is as important as arrival or discovery. The book describes the journey of a scientist Lidenbrock, his nephew Axel, and their guide through the Earth’s interior by way of volcanic tubes. Along the way, they encounter various threats and wonders, seeing evidence of earlier stages in the planet’s development. Professor Lidenbrock and Axel travel across Iceland, and then down through an extinct crater towards a sunless sea where they enter a living past and are confronted with the origins of man. A classic of nineteenth-century literature, the novel that has marked figures as diverse as Sartre and Tournier, Mark Twain and Conan Doyle.

Destiny’s Journey

Destiny’s Journey


Children and younger adolescents in today’s world are bombarded with information from the electronic media and, in particular, the internet. Much of what they see and read has little redeeming social value. Computer games are particularly violent and teach the lesson that, in order to have your way, it is okay to resort to strength and violence. Robert Ruiz, Jr, in writing Destiny’s Journey, sought to provide children and youth with an imaginative adventure story rooted in the values of family and friendship that stand the test of time: love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, faith and patience. Inculcated in the story are the concepts of a Creator and a plan of life that is greater than any individual or group of individuals on earth. There is, indeed, a divine plan for all living things. The author, in developing the Chiles family, was particularly interested in engaging Mexican and Hispanic American children and youth, many of whom have been raised in the produce fields of Mexico and the United States. Thus, Chile’s family characters serve as the vehicle to share values that make any society strong. The interdependence of the characters in this story clearly demonstrates that “no man is an island, entire of it self.” All of us need each other, regardless of race, age or background in order to not only survive but thrive in today’s world. And above all, we must recognize that there is a higher power at work in each of our lives.

6 Simple Unwind Strategies for Your Journey Home From Work

Unwind before you arrive home.

In the last month I have presented at about 15 conferences and a particular issue has raised it’s head an unusual number of times. People have been saying that one big problem they are dealing with is the ability to leave work at work — and arrive home and be a ‘home/family person.’

Both men and women have said the same thing and that it is really intefering with their quality of life. They are snappy, irritable, uncommunicative, withdrawn and generally bad company!

You arrive home, drawn, focused on work problems and generally in a bad mood. And the next thing that happens — yes, you guessed it — a fight! And soon, it’s the normal state of affairs (so to speak!) At which point we decide it’s all too hard and we separate. And start the whole process over again.

No, you can’t expect your loved ones to leave you alone for 15 minutes after you arrive home – so you can unwind in peace. They are excited about your arrival! And children don’t understand the need to unwind. We need to think about how specifically, we are going to leave work at work. Step one is to just be aware that we bring work problems home! Sometimes we just don’t realize that our behavior is different, that we are being picky, difficult, unreasonable and all those other words your loved ones are calling you!

Men are sometimes too willing to accuse women of ‘uterine’ problems HA HA.

Picture this scenario: You are at work, having a pig of a day. Everything seems difficult, nothing is going smoothly, and you can’t seem to get ahead or make any impact on your in tray or INBOX. Suddenly, you notice it’s 6.30 p.m. Damn! You promised to be home early tonight. You fly to the car, drive like a maniac to get home as soon as possible and walk in the door. Only to be greeted by lots of noisy people wanting your attention!

It’s the last thing you need or want. So you raise your voice, act a little irritated and ask everyone to leave you alone for 10 minutes so you can change and unwind. You then proceed to have a dreadful evening with everyone upset, irritated, picky or sulking!

Here’s a list of things, that work really well, for you to do once you leave work to unwind before you get home:

1. Have a notebook and pen in the car, and as soon as you climb into the car, write down all the things you need to attend to the next day and prioritize them. Or list the problems facing you and possible solutions. Or list the issues that have been worrying you and rate them in order of significance. Then close the notebook and put it in the console or the glovebox — and that marks the end of your work day. From that point on you focus on home, good things that have happened to you, or something you could look forward to at home.

If your mind slips back to work, gently tell yourself that work is in the glovebox and you’ll take the page out the next morning, when it’s time to think about work again. Surprisingly, it only takes a short time before your brain learns that the notebook going into the glovebox is a sign to change thinking to home.

2. Use a geographical marker on the way home to signal to your brain that work thinking stops here and home thinking starts. Where I am from some people use the two pylons on the bridge. As they drive past the first one, they know they only have the time it takes to reach the other one before they regiment their brain to stop work thinking. Do you have any markers you could use?

3. Stop at some scenic or quiet spot on the way home (not the pub or bar!) and take your 10 minutes to unwind there. Take off an article of clothing that represents work, like your tie if you’re a bloke (or a tie wearing woman) or your work shoes or earrings, if you are a woman – put ‘home shoes’ on.

Then take 10 minutes to meditate (no, you don’t have to sit in a corner in orange robes chanting ‘omm’!) All you do is stare at the view and think of nothing; or focus on your breathing in and out, in and out; or focus on your muscles, notice any tension and release it; or repeat the word ‘flowing’ to yourself; or focus on a colour; or sound; or any one of a zillion things like that. This helps your mind to settle and leave the jangled chaos of work thinking behind.

4. Play music in the car — If you have a favourite piece of music, play it now. Sometimes it helps to have faster music at the beginning of the journey to match the faster pace of your ‘work brain’ and slow it down gradually over a period of 10 or 15 minutes – so that by the time you arrive home you have slowed down.

Or listen to a comedy skit; or a laughter track — infectious laughter that will make you grin if not laugh! Or play motivational podcasts or personal development talks – no work ones!

5. Plan your next holiday. Think about what you would do, how relaxed you’d be and how much fun you would have.

6. Recall and ‘relive’ in your mind’s eye good experiences from the past. A time when you laughed yourself silly; or were praised for fantastic performance; or did something about which you were really proud or some event like that.

This is just a small list of the possible ways to unwind before you arrive home so you can start the night off the way you would like it to finish! Have fun!

The Insiders’ Journey: Pursuing the American Dream

The Insiders’ Journey: Pursuing the American Dream


Sociologist Irving Krauss and Political Scientist Wilma Rule show that academics are not cloistered in their ivory tower. In their life-long journey as students and professors at major universities and regional institutions they give a first hand account of their universities’ inner workings and their struggle for justice in cases of gender discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful dismissal. Their odyssey begins as sweethearts at U.C. Berkeley and goes on to their ten years in Hawaii, sixteen in Illinois and retirement in a small mountain community in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. Of greatly different origin-living from New York’s South Bronx and Wilma from Basin, Wyoming-they had similar values and interests that made them sensitive to injustice. During their 53 years of married life they also had major roles in Congressional and community politics. As children of the Great Depression of the 1930’s Irving tells of occurrences in his working class neighborhood that did not get into the history books and Wilma relates events in her family that darken the lore of early ranching. They had a zest for living and describe unusual experiences in East Berlin and Egypt in their worldwide travel, mostly to professional conferences. They are indebted to their families’ emphasis on education and stress how important the availability of excellent and affordable schooling was for their successful pursuit of the American Dream.

An Enlightened Journey: How I Lived With AIDS for Thirty Years

An Enlightened Journey: How I Lived With AIDS for Thirty Years


John Paul An Enlightened Journey: How I Lived with AIDS for Thirty Years John is a person with AIDS who was diagnosed with Kaposi sarcoma, an AIDS-related cancer on August 24, 1984, and was given one year to live, he had just turned thirty-four. John was invited to speak at the Sixth International AIDS Conference held in San Francisco in 1990 because he was considered a long-term survivor having lived with AIDS for six years. Prior to the conference, he was convinced death was inevitable because HIV/AIDS had just been identified a few years before and there was no known treatment. Stricken with fear and embarrassed by his physical appearance, caused by wasting, he isolated himself from his friends and society in general. It wasn’t long before he became so ill he was bed-ridden for one year. His roommates were terrified to even come near him, but occasionally one roommate would peek into his bedroom to see if he was still alive. Then one day he received a gift from a friend, it was a book about herbs and their healing properties. At the advice of his friend, who stated, “You can’t do nothing, you have to do something,” John studied this book from cover-to-cover and began to fight. Immersing himself in the challenge to acquire every bit of knowledge concerning his condition, John discovered a wealth of information on nutrition, herbal remedies, and the doctrine of mind, body, and spirit. Using herbs that are antiviral, anti-cancer, and ones that strengthen the immune system his health began to improve. For the next twenty-two years John used only natural substances and the quality of his life improved greatly. His book is not only about his battle with AIDS, but also the obstacles that have been laid in front of him through this journey: From discrimination, to taking part in demonstrations through the streets of San Francisco in an attempt to bring AIDS awareness to our government. To crossing the Mexican border purchasing a medication that showed promise in the figh

From Musical Theater to Miranda Lambert’s Opening Act: Courtney Cole’s Country Music Journey with #NoFilter

2015-05-18-1431974967-6389180-CCbluecrop2.jpg

Courtney Cole’s first time singing in front of an audience was almost her last. The wide-eyed eleven-year-old spent weeks preparing to sing in front of her Louisiana church for the first time. She was so confident in her preparation and eager to make her debut that right before she went onstage, she asked her piano accompanist to forego the song’s introduction.

“It was a disaster,” Cole recalls. “I started singing in the wrong key. I knew it right away, but I couldn’t figure out how to switch when the piano came in. I barely finished, and then I immediately went to the bathroom and cried my eyes out. I told my mom I would never, ever sing again.”

Despite the traumatic experience, Cole’s fifth-grade resilience kicked in and she was singing in church again a couple of weeks later. Church performances soon turned into musical theater, which led Cole to attend the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts near her hometown of Mandeville, Louisiana, as a high schooler.

“I’ve always loved to perform and feel so at home on stage,” Cole says. “I know this sounds so generic, but I love Wicked. My family names all of our animals after Wicked; my mom had a fish named Glinda, and her dog’s name is Elphaba. There’s a spell that Elphaba says in the play, ‘Eleka nahmen nahmen ah tum ah tum eleka nahmen,’ and that’s my dog’s name. I call her Ellie for short. Now I just need a boy dog to name Fiyero!”

Musical theater came so naturally for Cole that she almost pursued the passion after high school until a conversation with her church’s worship pastor helped change her course. “I had a scholarship to go to school in Alabama for musical theater,” she says. “My worship pastor said, ‘You don’t need to go do that that. You need to do your ultimate dream, which is touring and being onstage and singing music that you’ve written.'”

Inspired by the conversation, Cole applied to Belmont University in Nashville. “I got in at the last audition they had for the year and moved to Nashville, and I’ve been here ever since.”

2015-05-18-1431978575-8106807-IMG_4781.JPG

“I majored in commercial voice,” Cole says. “Thank God that’s a major! What else would I have majored in? Accounting? I couldn’t!” she adds with a laugh. “Music is the only thing I’m good at. There’s nothing else I would want to do. I respect and appreciate the people who do the business side of [music] so much because it’s just so hard. I did it for a while, and I couldn’t even think. It just wasn’t me.”

Cole calls her journey “your typical Nashville story.” She explains, “I worked my way up. After I graduated, I got an internship at a publishing company…from a guy I met on MySpace, actually,” the singer adds. “I worked there doing a bunch of odd jobs. I would work from 9 – 5, then sing and write from 6 – 10, because that’s what I ultimately wanted to do. The company executives saw what I was doing and decided to give me a publishing deal! That’s where my journey as a professional songwriter and artist really began. I’ve been refining my writing and crafting my sound over the last couple of years, and here I am now. “

Here is a place Cole describes as “exactly where I’ve always dreamed I would be.” She has a new music video, “Drunk,” which is making waves on CMT and GAC. Her Spotify-exclusive acoustic EP, #NoFilter, has been received well by fans and critics alike, and she’ll join one of her country idols, Miranda Lambert, on an all-female country tour this fall.

“Making the video for ‘Drunk’ was one of the best experiences of my life,” Cole gushes. “When we were finished, I looked at my manager and said, ‘Can we do that again?’ It was just a really fun day. It brought in the music side and my theater side.”

The video was shot in Nashville, but Cole infused elements of New Orleans as a tribute to a town that she says has been a constant inspiration. “Personality-wise, music-wise, color-wise, it’s just so inspiring,” she says. “That’s all the stuff I want to bring out in my music. We couldn’t film in New Orleans because Mardi Gras was going on, so we decided to bring Mardi Gras to Nashville! If you look closely, you can see fleurs-de-lis in a few places in the video.”

2015-05-18-1431975004-2921404-IMG_5144crop.jpg

The song “Drunk” was the product of a writer’s retreat between Cole and co-writers Catt Gravitt, Gerald O’Brien, and Shirazi.”We wrote five songs that trip, but we knew right away there was something really special about ‘Drunk,'” Cole says. “What you hear on Spotify is actually the acoustic work tape that we did in the cabin that day. I knew it would make the perfect first single and be a great stepping stone for the album.” (Fans can find the fully-produced version of “Drunk” on iTunes.)

Cole’s Spotify-exclusive debut also includes the beautiful ballad “Fall Like Rain,” which provides a great balance to the fun, upbeat “Drunk” and “Can’t Buy Love.” The inspirational “Cool Girl” finishes out the four-song collection, making it a very strong showing for the Louisiana native, who is road-tested, to say the least.

She has played hundreds of shows supporting acts including Chris Young, Thompson Square, and Kip Moore. But she shows she’s most excited about are yet to come. This fall, she will join one of her country-music heroes, Miranda Lambert, on a resurrection of Lambert’s Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour at venues across the country. The all-female lineup includes Lambert, Cole, “God Made Girls” singer RaeLynn, Lambert’s Pistol Annies partner-in-crime Ashley Monroe, and up-and-coming country artist Clare Dunn.

“I’m so excited for the tour. It feels so surreal,” Cole says. “Miranda’s music changed songwriting for me. She changed the way that I view music in general, and writing from a personal standpoint. Her writing helped me get down to the truth of who I am as a writer and find what I want to say to the world, and it just made me want to be better.”

2015-05-18-1431975186-6477429-PinkGuitars_2015_POSTER_GENERIC.jpeg

Although landing the tour with Miranda is a dream come true for the young artist, she’s quick to note that there are many dreams left to achieve. And the best way to make those dreams come true? Believe in them, she says.

“If I could sum up my story in one sentence, it would be that dreams really do come true, and with a little hard work and staying positive, you can make anything happen,” she says with conviction. “Your thoughts really do become your life. When I was a little girl, I would sit in my room and pretend like I was on tour. I would see the arena in my head. And the fact that I’m here now, and get to go out and play my music live on the road, it’s amazing! But I knew that was going to happen from the time I was a little girl, because I believed it.”

Country fans had better believe they’ll be hearing a LOT from Courtney Cole in the future. Between now and the kickoff of the Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour in September, country fans can enjoy her acoustic EP, #NoFilter, exclusively on Spotify.

Life Lesson: Embrace the Journey

The paths in life are many, but depending on where you live (both figuratively and literally), you may have more specific destinations (goals). This focused view can help, as you try to map out all the ways to get there. But then life happens, and you are thrown off course. When this occurs, can you roll with it or will you stall (struggle)?

This point was driven home on a recent meet-up with an old friend. It was like any other Thursday. Our rendezvous point: Long Beach, California. And if L.A. traffic had anything to say, the stop and go (ups & downs) was just the start.

First, he was held up at work (responsibilities), so we pushed our get-together back, and even though I was en route, something told me (intuition) to flip around and head home instead. I came in for a pit stop and re-fueled with some healthy greens and made my way back out. This time I took Pacific Coast Highway, trusting that my GPS would get me there with ease (expectations). Not quite. Because I wasn’t able to pay full attention while driving, I missed a few signs (obstacles). But the unexpected didn’t stop there. Suddenly, without a clear entry in sight, I noticed that I drove right past the restaurant (challenges). I even pulled over on two occasions to ask the people directing traffic, “How do I get back on track (support)?” Still I was led astray (setbacks).

Finally, I saw a parking structure (blessings) and pulled in to discover it was completely full (false alarms)! On my way out, yet again, I asked the guy how I could find my way, only to not understand a word, due to his thick accent (confusion).

So I took matters into my own hands (control), and decided to follow the orange cones (guideposts), and found myself driving through the sand (surprises)! At least it was alongside a dazzling beach (beauty)! — I was lost in the moment (pun intended).

2015-05-15-1431658481-9551441-orangecones.JPG

Recognizing I was lost, I called my friend (initiative). He was equally surprised and perplexed as to what was going on, so he suggested finding me first (self-discovery) and then we could take it from there (process). He pulled aside and I followed behind him (teachers) as he steered aimlessly around Long Beach (the unknown) in search of familiar surroundings (experiences) and a new connection point (opportunities). However, our often abrupt and sudden turns (risks), required much focus (clarity), with no set roads to follow (uncertainty), and continued adjustments (resilience), until a way was shown (faith).

At last, and boy was I glad I ate first (reflection), we stumbled upon (fortune) a lovely restaurant situated along the beach, with a stunning view, and a quiet place to just be (relaxation) and have a heart to heart (profound connection). I couldn’t have imagined a better outcome (perspective). Truly, only life can orchestrate such an incredible journey (fulfillment)! What an adventure!

2015-05-15-1431658900-9741674-longbeach.JPG

Oh, and it turns out the annual Long Beach Grand Prix was taking place (destiny) and our detours (choices) led us exactly to where we were meant to be!

I leave you with this single question: How do you choose to navigate in your journey of life?

Knives, Lipstick, and Liberty One Woman’s Journey


Knives, Lipstick and Liberty – One Woman’s Journey is Jenn’s story, in her own words, on how in five short years she went from not being involved in politics at all to being recognized around the country for her knife advocacy, and her success in changing laws in her own state.”Not only is Jenn Coffey an inspiration for her many New Hampshire constituents, but she has won over scores of knife enthusiasts worldwide for her efforts in championing the idea that their right to own and carry their knives when they want to and where they want to is their inalienable right. In my business, it doesn’t get much better than that.” – Steve Shackleford, Editor, Blade MagazineThe Coffey Chronicles by Annmarie Timmins Concord Monitor staffWatch state Rep. Jenn Coffey on the floor of the House and you’d think she was swaddled from infancy in the “Don’t Tread on Me” flag. An Andover Republican, Coffey is pro-gun, anti-regulation and well-versed in the Constitution. She could be the poster girl for the Free State Project, the Republican Liberty Caucus and the Second Amendment Sisters. It was Coffey, after all, who sponsored a bill last year requiring the state to post warning signs at the Massachusetts border so gun owners wouldn’t be caught unaware in the anti-gun Bay State. Turns out, that’s the new Jenn Coffey. Seven years ago, Coffey was a Massachusetts resident (true!) who viewed her husband’s political rants about government intrusion as “background noise,” according to an autobiography she’s written. The title is fantastic: Knives, Lipstick and Liberty.”There were times when (my husband) Billy would point out certain things about the direction our country was headed in, and I would nod my head in a ‘Yes, Dear’ fashion and then forget about it,” Coffey writes. “Sometimes I would tell him he was nuts and getting into conspiracy junk.”The couple argued over radio stations: he wanted to listen to “political crap” and she wanted to hear music. That all changed one day in 2004 when Coff

The Rain Parade: A Photographic Journey Across Ghana


The Rain Parade tells the story of photographer, Julia Blaukopf when, in 2006, she traveled to Ghana to work with Women in Progress, an organization that empowers women through a sustainable business of clothing production called Global Mamas. Woven into The Rain Parade are Blaukopfs experiences of the everyday, of mothers, artisans, leaders, workers, and women who use imagination to achieve prosperity for their families and their country. During this time she traveled throughout the country visiting the bead-making region, mountain villages, a remote fishing village, the big city of Accra, and the homes of Ghanaian artisans and professionals. Blaukopf scribed her experiences into a journal, detailing the moments of each day. These written impressions interact with Blaukopfs photographs to create her story – a time that becomes a dream. Julia Blaukopf is a Philadelphia-based photographer and social documentarian. She has worked as a creative partner with organizations and businesses in Germany, Copenhagen, Kenya, Ghana, Lithuania and throughout the US. In 2005, Julia worked with a community-run reforestation project in Kenya. A year later she traveled back to Africa to photograph for the Ghanaian organization Women in Progress. Julia has also traveled extensively in the United States, focusing her lens on women artisans and their work in the creative sector. Julia worked with Women in Progress as a photographer and a liaison to help promote the womens craft in the U.S. Her goal is to create artistic work that promotes social and political efforts, to create images that embody the mission of Women in Progress, and to help raise awareness for the women artisans crafting businesses through batiking, sewing, and bead making. *Author: Blaukopf, Julia/ Blaukopf, Julia *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 128 *Publication Date: 2011/06/10 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.50 x 8.50 x 0.33 inches

From Lizzy Bennet to Fanny Price: My Jane Austen Journey

At age 12, my obliviousness was a survival instinct. As my peers experimented with make-up and clothes, I wore a sports bra to school, my hair frizzing into the stratosphere. Most days were spent doing what I loved best — reading.

Inevitably then, my mother one day showed me the six-hour spectacle of Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle falling in love despite their best efforts. But my first exposure to Jane Austen only left me with more questions: Did people really have hair like that back then? Why so many hats? Is there nothing to do in England except go on walks and eavesdrop? How could a man ask a woman to marry him when they’d never even had a real conversation?

But my mother, in her wisdom, simply handed me the book and told me to read it. Despite my initial doubts, I devoured it. Austen’s witty, knowing narrator transported me through time and space. Pride and Prejudice allowed me to experience the grown-up tribulations of falling in love and finding yourself, all while engaging in charming banter and fending off the local mean girl with rapier wit.

Naturally, for Christmas I received an anthology of Austen’s novels — which I proceeded to lug around school for the next six months. Instead of conjugating Spanish verbs, I travelled to Bath with Catherine Moreland. Instead of learning about the different parts of a cell body, I traded gossip in the Highbury parish with Emma. I would look up from Captain Wentworth’s letter to Anne Elliot declaring his undying love to find the boys in my class making fart noises and spitting paper wads into my hair.

In short, middle school was a bit of a letdown compared to the world of Jane Austen. So was high school, for that matter. As I descended deeper into my 19th-century refuge, there was never any doubt that I was Lizzy Bennet. Everyone wants to be Lizzy, but I knew I was a true heroine.

It seemed fitting then, that a few weeks into my first quarter of college I took a weekend off to attend the Jane Austen Society of North America’s conference celebrating the 200th anniversary of P&P. Dressed in an Empire waistline, my hair pinned up, glove-clad hands sweating, I attended my first ball. Everyone who saw the pictures made the obligatory Lizzy looking for her Darcy joke, but to me the conference only cemented my position as everyone’s favorite character.

But as my freshman year continued, I began to wonder if I’d been mistaken my entire life. Maybe I wasn’t a Lizzy, after all. William Deresiewicz — who, incidentally, is an expert on Austen — would agree that, along with excellent sheep, top-tier institutions are very good at creating Lizzy Bennets. Nascent cool girls envied by women and desired by men, confident without taking anything too seriously. Someone fun! light and bright and sparkling, in the words of Austen.

Throughout my freshmen year, I met many young women who fit this criteria far better than I did. Privileged young women who were universally good at everything, who knew only success. Lizzy faces many setbacks, but never outright failure — which is something I became familiar with during my freshman year.

I returned home to Portland for the summer to do the most decidedly un-heroic work of babysitting, with more questions than ever. Austen never prepared me for talking to my parents about changing my major, trying to translate my passion into a career, boys who are not yet men and more interested in their phones than the five-feet, eight-inches (ten inches if you count my hair) of fabulousness standing right in front of them.

But while working on an essay that would eventually fail to gain even an Honorable Mention in the contest I’d previously won, I received the final death knell — I am the heroine everyone despises.

Fanny Price, the protagonist of Mansfield Park, is no one’s favorite heroine. From her name to her lukewarm “romance” with her cousin, she always comes in near the bottom when ranking the Austen canon. But as I struggled through re-reading Mansfield Park while working on my doomed essay, I realized we had a great deal in common — we are both reserved, judgmental, old-fashioned, struggling to compete.

Until this moment, I never knew myself.

Of course, I still like to think that maybe I am an intriguing mixture of Anne and Fanny, an old soul who improves with age, who learns from her mistake. But for so long, Lizzy Bennet was an integral part of my identity, an influence on what I wanted from life, an assurance that I too would someday find a Colin Firth emerging from the lake. But the great and powerful Jane Austen has spoken, and declared me a Fanny Price.

In an essay for the New Yorker, Christopher Beha argues that we shouldn’t look to fiction for examples on how to lead our lives. And while I agree with many of the points he makes, on this we differ. We are all socialized with stories, and to a certain degree we all imagine ourselves as on the paths of our own hero’s journey. Austen deals not with journeys to the underworld or witches and wizards and elves, but with sisters. Families, communities, gossip, and self-discovery. By simply living my life, I emulate her heroines.

Austen may not have given me exact guidance on how to survive college, but she is relevant now more than ever. More than half of Millennials are single? The Regency period suffered a shortage of marriageable young men as they went off to fight Napoleon. The Boomerang generation may be stuck at home, but so was Jane — and any woman who didn’t marry. Even though Austen achieved some moderate success in her own time, she still died while living with her mother and sister, at age 41.

Even Austen herself couldn’t compete with Lizzy Bennet. Can any of us? I love Lizzy, but only now am I realizing I can’t be her. In May, Mansfield Park turned 200, and it will probably take another 200 years for me to resign myself to Fanny Price as my innate heroine. But nonetheless I raise my glass to the Catherines, the Emmas and Elinors, the Mariannes, Annes, Fannys and Lizzys and even Janes that reside in all women. A heroine does not always succeed, and she is not always heroic, but she endures nonetheless.

When the Journey to Happiness Stalls, Try Focusing on Meaning

In college, I thought I could study my way to being perpetually happy. I figured I had all the prerequisites needed for a happy life: a supportive family, good friends, a good education and the world ahead of me. I read countless books on happiness, became a psychology major, practiced smiling 20 times per day and even wrote my senior thesis on Martin Seligman’s work about “learned optimism,” or how to see the glass as half full. Yet I found that the more I focused on trying to be happy, the more elusive it felt.

It appears I’m not alone. Recent psychology studies have suggested that if we doggedly try to focus on happiness, it can impede our ability to be happy! In their article “Can Seeking Happiness Make People Happy?” Mauss and colleagues contend that people who highly value happiness end up setting happiness standards that are difficult to achieve. [5] When they don’t attain these high standards, they feel disappointed, “paradoxically decreasing their happiness the more they want it.”

So where do we go from there? Two experiences during my residency training to become a psychiatrist profoundly helped me on my own journey. The first was becoming familiar with meditation, which enabled me to take pressure off my quest for perpetual happiness. And the second was asking myself a slightly different question than “how can I be happy” that steered my journey toward values and meaning.

Before I started to meditate, I thought I was failing every time I had an unpleasant thought, be it unhappiness, loneliness, anger, anxiety, or frustration. With meditation, I slowly learned that those feelings are part of the package of life. Instead of trying to push the feelings down only to have them pop up (often at unexpected and sometimes pretty inconvenient times) or develop self-sabotaging distractions to ease my troubles, I learned to just accept the unpleasant feelings — to sit with them while they ebbed and flowed in my mind. The more I sat with feelings, the less threatening they felt. And I discovered I need not beat myself up every time a negative thought or feeling popped up. In other words, I stopped adding to my misery by judging myself when I felt miserable.

When I stopped asking myself, “How can I be happy?” an unexpected new question popped up, which was, “How can I be happy with myself?” It started with learning an unconventional technique to relieve emotional distress called the Emotional Freedom Technique. As part of this technique, my teacher asked me to repeat the self-statement, “Even though I have this pain, I deeply love and accept myself.” I hesitated. Was that true? Did I “deeply love and accept myself?” I was embarrassed that with all the introspection I’d done, I hadn’t asked myself that question before. And I was also disturbed that when I did answer it, my answer was a hesitant, “Umm… maybe?” It pushed me on my journey to figure out what I could do to make that self-statement feel truer to me. I began to figure out what I valued, so that when negative feelings came up, I could still work towards things that were meaningful and affirming for me.

There is a type of therapy I recently discovered that makes me feel like I might have re-invented the wheel with my two transformative experiences. It is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT encourages people to accept what is out of their personal control (such as depression, chronic pain, external events like economic downturns or disasters, etc.) and commit to taking actions that are in accordance with their central values. ACT assumes that even when people are experiencing a great deal of pain, there’s an opportunity to find meaning and purpose. The therapy teaches people how to accept painful feelings that are out of their control using mindfulness (a meditative practice involving paying attention to our experience in the moment), and shows people that pain can sometimes help with crafting rich and meaningful lives.

In my work as a psychiatrist, I often focus on reducing or eliminating symptoms, such as those that come with depression and anxiety disorders. ACT, instead, aims to change a person’s relationship with his or her thoughts and feelings so they are no longer seen as symptoms. In his book ACT Made Simple, for example, Russ Harris makes an analogy to a plant we might judge as an “ugly weed” in our garden that we just can’t get rid of. If we view this plant as a menacing, ugly weed, we’ll spend a lot of mental energy feeling upset, frustrated, maybe embarrassed about it, wishing it weren’t there, etc. But if we view the plant as an unfortunate fact of life, common to the native environment, then we are free to not waste mental energy on it. This leaves us able to better focus on what we find meaningful.

Although ACT still has a limited research base, there is some evidence that it can be as effective in the treatment of depression as CBT; there is also evidence of its effectiveness in treating anxiety disorders and chronic pain. One proposed mechanism for the effectiveness of ACT is that it helps decrease what has been called “experiential avoidance.” When we attempt to avoid negative thoughts and feelings, not only do we often fail, but we can actually come to feel greater anxiety and distress. By decreasing our experiential avoidance, we can feel a reduction in distress, and move more easily toward what we value in our lives.

So if you find yourself bogged down on your path to happiness, it may be time to pause and refocus. Instead of tormenting yourself with, “Why can’t I be happy?” you could try to be present with all the feelings you’re having at this very moment, good, bad, and ugly. And then use the mental energy you save to figure out what you value in life. One question that I particularly like is, “When I’m 80 years old, what do I want to look back and say about myself?”

It’s a big question to ask. One thing I can now say for myself is, “Even though I was tired and a little achy, I still wrote that article about meaningfulness.”

A Deeper Darker Truth: Tom Wilson’s Journey Into The Assassination Of John F. Kennedy

A Deeper Darker Truth: Tom Wilson’s Journey Into The Assassination Of John F. Kennedy


In the late 1980s Tom Wilson a retired research and development engineer with US Steel Corporation designed a state-of-the-art image processing and computer analysis system using technology already employed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In doing so he perfected a method (based solely on hte physics of light) that could extract information from materials and images that were beyond human visual capabilities. Tom could for example detect flaws in a steel plate. This accepted methodology allowed him to serve as a consulting technical expert in criminal law cases where his image processing was accepted as hard evidence in American courts of law. For more than a decade Tom Wilson applied his computer image processing system to countless images of the Kennedy assassination. He stripped away layers of information to reveal truths that had never before been known. Some of his findings include: Shooters behind hte picket fence on the grassy knoll; Alteration of the Zapruder film; Fakery of the Oswald backyard photographs; An individual in the “sniper’s window” of the Texas School Book Depository who was nto Lee Harvey Oswald; An exit wound in the back of President Kennedy’s head (just as the doctors who attended the President at Parkland Hospital had described.); Exact location of the final and fatal head shot; Alteration of autopsy x-rays and photographs contained in the National Archives. Reading like a mesmerizing whodunit murder mystery A DEEPER DARKER TRUTH chronicles Tom Wilson’s evolving series of startling discoveries that show President Kennedy was assassinated by a group of assassins on November 22 1963.
