To see ourselves as others see us


To A Louse
...O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!
It wad frae mony a blunder free us,
An' foolish notion:
What airs in dress an' gait wad lea'e us,
An' ev'n devotion!-- Robert Burns http://www.bbc.co.uk/robertburns/works/to_a_louse/

‘Fear of fear’ can lead to depression



“Those with anxiety sensitivity are afraid of their anxiety because their interpretation is that something catastrophic is going to happen when their anxious sensations arise,” says Andres Viana. Statistical analyses of questionnaire responses showed that anxiety sensitivity, after controlling for worry and generalized anxiety symptoms in above-average worriers, significantly predicted depression symptoms.http://futurity.org/top-stories/fear-of-fear-can-lead-to-depression/

Brooks & Dunn *It's Getting Better All The Time*

Sophie Zelmani - Dreamer

Seasons, my friend.
Colour me so we can blend.
Forbid me to go,
I know so little about the wind when it blows.

Dreamer, dreamer.
I’m woking out of your dream.

Take me off that parade,
and place me somewhere in yours and so shades.
Your night shuts my door,
and I announce dream anymore.

See if I can pass by that waiting hand,
if I can pass by that wondering man.
If I can leave to get one,
see that it all make sense pretty soon.

Dreamer, dreamer.
I´m woking out there you go on.
(dreamer, dreamer)
Dreamer, dreamer,
I´ll be where I belong.

One chance in life

The battles are unfailingly barbaric, and almost always fought to the death.



In a rare glimpse of a reality that wildlife photography rarely shows, this stark series of images illustrates how brutal life can be for the animals we might only see in a zoo.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1232860/Clash-titans-The-brutal-reality-wild-animals-fight-survival.html

The weird, wacky and way out there continued to make headlines in 2009, but this year there were a host of new bizarro animals and humans to add to the roster.

JOHN BROWN'S BODY
by Anonymous

John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in the grave,
John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in the grave,
John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in the grave,
But his soul goes marching on.

CHORUS: Glory, glory, hallelujah,
Glory, glory, hallelujah,
Glory, glory, hallelujah,
His soul goes marching on.

He's gone to be a soldier in the Army of the Lord,
He's gone to be a soldier in the Army of the Lord,
He's gone to be a soldier in the Army of the Lord,
His soul goes marching on.--CHORUS

John Brown's knapsack is strapped upon his back,
John Brown's knapsack is strapped upon his back,
John Brown's knapsack is strapped upon his back,
His soul goes marching on.--CHORUS

John Brown died that the slaves might be free,
John Brown died that the slaves might be free,
John Brown died that the slaves might be free,
His soul goes marching on.--CHORUS

The stars above in Heaven now are looking kindly down,
The stars above in Heaven now are looking kindly down,
The stars above in Heaven now are looking kindly down,
His soul goes marching on.--CHORUS http://www.civilwarpoetry.org/
