A potential available to all but usually masked or shielded by lies we tell ourselves to avoid anxiety about the future and regret of the past. He reveals how this constant activity of the mind serves as a mechanism which prevents us from living in the moment and trusting our intuitive intelligence. Thus: The Art of…

We are the last individuals of our species on Earth. How shall we respond? How shall we act? If industrial civilization is maintained, climate change will cause human extinction in the near term.

Carmel Impresarios by David J. Gordon

Carmel-by-the-Sea, a little town on the California coast, was one of the artistic hot spots of the West in the early 1920s, when two extraordinary women paid a visit one spring, and never left. Dene Denny and Hazel Watrous designed Carmel's first art gallery, and three dozen of its early houses. They founded the Carmel Music Society in 1927, and-in the midst of the Great Depression-they created the Carmel Bach Festival. For two decades they ran a successful repertory theater…
