Daily Thoughts 04/27/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I finished reading The Body Keeps the Score Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D..  The last part of the book appeals to early intervention in helping children and teenagers who have experienced trauma.  It is an argument for making safer schools and environments for children.

I also read some more of How to Do Nothing.  I am enjoying reading this book.  It has a different take on how to live with technology. I rather like that the author describes some of her practices focusing on attention like bird watching and deep listening.  Also, some of the environmental ideas are quite gripping.  The book has a very radical tone to it.
