Part of making any endeavor is that each one has its own special problems.
It's the nature of the process. ---Martin Scorsese

The heart of Angela Alfieri's work has everything to do with learning how to "listen" more, talk less and
take more thoughtful action. Her massage style draws from Swedish-relaxation, deep tissue, reflexology
and prenatal. Some of Angela's other more subtle integrated practices include: cranial sacral therapy,
zero balancing, meridian work and/or energy medicine to Reiki and Azure Healing.

The role of women has always been undervalued in the spy world, always undermined in terms
of recognition. Unfairly so. It's a world that needs women. ---Helen Mirren

In every culture, in every epoch, human beings have yearned for heaven--the kingdom of God, abode of the
elect, fount of enlightenment, mirror of hopes and desires. Now, in The Book of Heaven, Carol and
Philip Zaleski provide the first wide-ranging anthology of writings about heaven, drawing from
scriptures, myths, epics, poems, prayers, sermons, novels, hymns and spells, to illuminate
a vast spectrum of beliefs about the world beyond.

Sanity refers to the soundness, rationality and healthiness of the human mind, as opposed to insanity. A
person is not considered sane anymore just if he/she is irrational. In modern society, the terms have
become exclusively synonymous with compos mentis, in contrast with non compos mentis, or insane,
meaning troubled conscience. A sane mind is nowadays considered healthy both from its
analytical -once called rational- and emotional aspects.

In 1968, Ron Clark, at the age of 25, established in conjunction with the Whitney Museum of American Art
an independent study program (known as the ISP or sometimes the Whitney ISP), which helped start the
careers of artists, critics, and curators including Jenny Holzer, Andrea Fraser, Julian Schnabel,
Kathryn Bigelow and Roberta Smith, as well as many other well-known and influential cultural producers.

We are excited to announce that we have been working on a sheet music book for our records ‘Absalom’ and
‘Deep’. In order to allow fans and players to delve deeper into our music, the book will feature notation
and tablature (in the original tunings) of all of the stick and touch guitar parts from those
records and the title tracks from ‘Open’, plus anecdotes about each song. Your pledge is
very valuable. Thank you, Tony, Pat, Markus & Gabriel

Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is
progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong
human element to keep modesty and natural life. ---Nam June Paik
