    Daily Mindfulness: Maintaining An Optimal Level Of Hope And Despair

    As I see people's reaction to this tragedy, and experience my own, I think a primary challenge in this is to heed the wake up call yet not give in to despair. We in the US have been walking around as oil zombies. We live our lives and don't make the connection. Analogous to being...

    I Wish I Could Help.

    If I wasn't in Ohio I'd be down there volunteering my time to do whatever I could. The oil-covered wildlife just makes me sick man. :C

    Response To Gulf Oil Spill Ecological Disaster: Too Little; Too Late

    BP: We feel terrible about what has happened and we are going to make it right. Not that we think it is all our fault. And we don't think it is going to be that bad, ultimately. We are optimistic. And we understand how much the gulf fisherman have been affected by the spill...
