Daily Thoughts 11/15/2012

This morning, I read some more from True North.  I also read a little bit more of Mindsight.  The author is describing how meditation can change the brain based on recent findings in neuroscience.  He is describing meditation as a variety of different types of awareness training from prayer to chanting to breathing exercises and walking meditation.  Some people think of meditation as purely religious.  An excellent book which is not religious on relaxation is The Relaxation Response by Herbert Benson, M.D.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library this morning.  I also spent some more time checking the missing items list and looked over the displays and gift books.  I am meeting with the Baker and Taylor representative on Friday for the transition between BWI and Baker and Taylor.

The book, How To Create A Mind The Secret of Human Thought Revealed by Ray Kurzweil has come in for me to read.  I also checked out the graphic novel, Sailor Twain or The Mermaid on the Hudson by Mark Siegel.
