Practicing What I Preach
This week I'm saying no to blogging. (See my previous posting on the "Power of No.") Driving around yesterday, debating whose story to tell next, I thought to myself, I don't want to blog tomorrow. I want to make homemade bread and enjoy all the family, friends and four-legged creatures who have descended on our house for the holidays. (That's my granddog Bingo in the photo above, looking out my kitchen window.)
That said, here's a quick tidbit I read in AARP magazine this month:
"Perhaps the most inspiring piece of the social-intelligence puzzle is neuroplasticity: the discovery that our brains never stop evolving. "Stem cells manufacture 10,000 brain cells every day until you die.... The brain rises to the occasion the more you challenge it." --Daniel Goleman, author of Social Intelligence, quoted in an article by Mark Matousek titled "We're Wired to Connect."
