I’m back

So I deleted by blog with the expectation of just using Flavors.me as my homepage.  After several months of fighting with it and trying to keep it working, I gave up and am starting up my blog again.  I have missed this space to post photos, links, and other interesting tidbits about life around here.  

The Power of Addiction and The Addiction of Power

Canadian physician Gabor Maté is a specialist in terminal illnesses, chemical dependents, and HIV positive patients. Dr. Maté is a renowned author of books and columnist known for his knowledge about attention deficit disorder, stress, chronic illness and parental relations. His theme at TEDxRio+20 was addiction — from drugs to power. From the lack of love to the desire to escape oneself, from susceptibility of the being to interior power — nothing escapes. And he risks a generic and generous prescription: “Find your nature and be nice to yourself.”
