Ellen Langer: "Counter Clockwise: Mindful Health and the Power of Possibility" This book discusses how we mindlessly accept cues from our environment about our health. Sometimes the cues are subtle and sometimes in the form of diagnosis they are overt. The result is that we may limit our own possibilities through our attitudes and actions. The book suggests taking a more mindful approach to our health, being careful what we accept as facts and looking at the times when we reflect health rather than totally focusing on a diagnosis of disease.
Music I'm Listening To
Tosca by Puccini. Maria Callas, Giuseppe Di Stefano, Tito Gobbi: This 1953 recording conducted by Victor de Sabata at La Scala is likely the definitive recording of the opera. A 1964 video of the same cast at Covent Garden can be found on "You Tube."
