First thing Thursday morning I’m headed down to Naples, FL for my dad’s memorial service; the city is on the Gulf coast, but hundreds of miles away from the oil-spill. I’ve been trying to think of something suitable that’s disaster-related to do while I’m down there – beyond trying to drive less (ironically) and donating to groups working on the cleanup, that is – and the only thing I’ve thought of so far is to bring prayers and healing energy.
So, that’s what I’m going to do – my current plan is to be on the shore between 10-11 PM (Eastern) on Friday night, offering said prayers and energy to the gods and spirits of the Gulf area and specifically petitioning Poseidon to give Them His aid. I invite anyone who wants to participate in making this a group healing to jump in during this hour and send your own energy; or, if you have a prayer you would like me to carry, you can post it here or use the Contact form above.
If this strikes you as a worthwhile endeavor, please feel free to spread the word!

Interesting story on NPR this morning:
In an effort to understand how music affects us emotionally, cellist David Teie has written a couple of songs for an audience of tamarin monkeys. The results of the experiment are to be published in the journal Biology Letters.

There’s a very interesting article in a recent National Geographic about new technologies being used to investigate bog bodies – the ancient corpses found in peat bogs through much of Northern Europe.
