About the "Could Leaky Gut Be What’s Troubling You?"

What abut YOGURT? It is made from milk products. In the "Leaky Gut" article, the diet recommended avoiding "refined sugars, dairy, gluten, alcohol and artificial sweeteners" and to eat anti-inflammatory foods "fish and nuts, and filling up on green leafy vegetables, high-fiber and fermented foods" —  sauerkraut and kimchie should be good — to promote the growth of good bacteria.
Also that glutamine "specially after chemotherapy and radiation" however in WebMD the use of glutamine is "POSSIBLY SAFE" however the "potential side effects of glutamine are not known."

A poem for today's share

ALONE by Edgar Allan Poe

Giving a plug to a writing contest

AuthorStand. ebook - Premium Contest #2 Entry — GENERAL FICTION by AuthorStand Editors

Giving a plug to a contest on Writing Sense because I like so much that entries "are limited" to 100, the fee ($23) is reasonable and, unusual in contests, after the judging they send "specific suggestions" on five categories:
 • Proofing & Editing
 • Writing Technique
 • Originality
 • Plot Development
 • Character Development
Maximum words per entry are 2,000 (could be a stand alone chapter from a book), and deadline is 4/11/2013 - time to edit a piece on your someday-shelve.

A voice to unspeakable shame

"...1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime..."  and I add: those are the women that admit to the abuse. I was not aware of One Billion Rising, to find it in your community go to the website: Thank you Center For The Arts for hosting and advertising, an event that gives a voice to what, for most women is an unspeakable shame.

In the now

For me to embrace the past is to be at peace with my my teacher of experience, and to plan for the future is to embrace possibilities, the now is today's present.

Has discipline killed creativity?

Just read McBride’s guide to ‘Painless’ screenwriting" where writers are encouraged to brake-away from the road most traveled.
"Writing formulaic projects out of a craven desire to succeed or out of poor taste due to a lack of familiarity with the genuine classics of film history is the biggest mistake a screenwriter can make today,” McBride notes. “Writing to a formula is virtually a guarantee of a bad movie. As Frank Capra advised young filmmakers, ‘Don’t follow trends. Start trends.’”
To write with total freedom, to create and make new! What will those that expect a wax apple do when they bite into the real thing? Will they will find it messy and immature? Those that have preached for centuries that a writer must get the formula down before going free-range. 
Oh, what hope and breath in the statement and advise given to writers by Capra! Can it be like reading that chocolate cake will not make one fat and forget diets just "do" great stuff? Written on my iPad, no grammar or spelling checked)

      Not from one pew.

      Just found a site that I want to explore, it is the Janet Conner The Soul-Directed Life, if any have discovered it already and have comments, please share with me your thoughts. I think that in today's world most accept that the God of their understanding has no specific pew. I'm open to people, places and works by those wanting to encompass the "spiritual" not religious, not that organized religion and spiritual groups aren't  beneficial, but "the meek shall inherit the earth" to me is lost in groups, organizations and beliefs that shut down all else to worship at the pulpit of one teacher.

      Be safe when traveling.

      John and I love to travel whenever possible. A lot of times when on a cruise or visiting a city we don't sign up for tours but prefer to foot it or take local public transportation, rent a car, and have even shared transportation with other travelers. On this site, you can read about a few of the stay safe tips. Bon voyagé.
