Buddha at the Gas Pump

BUDDHA AT THE GAS PUMP 
A few years ago, quite by chance, I discovered Rick Archer - and his interviews of those who have spiritually awakened. We are fortunate to have this programming online. I don't know of anything else like it. Here, you can tune into so many different types of people and their experiences - all so different, and yet all the same.
Below, Mirabai Devi shares her experience of awakening.
Please enjoy this and other of Mr. Archer's sensitive interviews on Buddha at the Gas Pump (BATGAP). Should these interviews resonate with you, please consider donating - to make sure that this special programming remains online.

All About Food

A LIFE IMMERSED IN FOOD
Allison McNearny writes about Ruth Reichl
I decided too much time had gone by without a food posting. So, I began my search. Only minutes later, I came upon a beautifully written article for The Daily Beast - by Allison McNearny - "Food for Life: How Cooking Saved Ruth Reichl".
I had been a bit out of touch, I suppose. Via Ms. McNearny I learned Ruth Reichl has a new book out - titled, My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life. Published by Random House, New York.
From Ms. McNearny's article:
She has a reverence for ingredients, for flavors, for the process of cooking that she finds meditative. A unique dish or a single piece of fruit can bring back memories and emotions or help her get out of a funk and appreciate life more (a recipe for Shirred Eggs with Potato Puree includes the observation: “Each bite reminds you why you’re glad to be alive”).
I think this sort of passion is reserved for any creative person. Those who write, paint or design buildings know that each moment spent in creativity is an electric reminder of aliveness, of passion.
I haven't read Ms. Reichl's book, but it is because I took time to read a beautifully written article (review) that I plan to purchase the book.
Please read Allison McNearny's review at The Daily Beast.

A Prophecy

SIGNALING THE FUTURE
Installation by artist,  Pedro Mazorati
Pedro Mazorati, Where the Tides Ebb and Flow
dimension: variable selon étang.
De 12 à 20 sculptures. Longueur de 50 m. à 100 m.



Several news items, today - all regarding climate change - led me to this eerie environmental installation, entitled, "Where the Tides Ebb and Flow" by Argentinian artist, Pedro Mazorati.

Visitors to Park Mountsouris in Paris view this work from the shore of a small lake. Blue skinned male sculptures all share the same destiny in a topsy-turvy world, where rising sea levels portend our imminent and immediate future.
