a point of view

My mother-in-law Sue has a saying I love- "there is no one smarter than someone who agrees with you." So when my friend Tom sent me the article excerpted below I found it brilliant- LOL

from:

The Joy of Quiet

By PICO IYER

A series of tests in recent years has shown, Mr. Carr points out, that after spending time in quiet rural settings, subjects “exhibit greater attentiveness, stronger memory and generally improved cognition. Their brains become both calmer and sharper.” More than that, empathy, as well as deep thought, depends (as neuroscientists like Antonio Damasio have found) on neural processes that are “inherently slow.”

so apparently watching birds and water isn't just good for me....
