Near Death Experiences: Memo

My copy of Tibetan Book of the Dead arrived today, along with a companion book, Luminous Emptiness.

As soon as I feel like I have some idea what they're talking about, I'll be back to posting about NDEs --- as well as Nearing Death Awareness, which I only first heard about a day or so ago. I went through a couple of months of Nearing Death Awareness with my dad.

I also want to point out I'm doodling around with the blogroll. In essence, anyone who gets more than 100,000 hits a day is getting the boot --- which means Kos and Talking Points Memo are now gone. :=D I haven't stopped reading them, it's just time to use their space for new blogs.

I'm adding some more obscure blogs, as well, and some new ones, like NewsRant, a new blog by journalism profs at OU, and The Next Hurrah by Kos regular front-pagers Meteor Blades, Plutonium Page and others.

So ... so there's that. I'm off to read for the night.

Cookie, you have such wide-ranging interests! Thank you for visiting my blog. Do you know Alice Anderton, by any chance? I saw the Intertribal Wordpath Society link on the side of your blog and just wondered...

Yes, I know Alice! Do you know Alice? I swear, she's famous, isn't she? She's absolutely brilliant and a really good person, too. Proud to call her friend.

I have wide ranging interests because I couldn't have any interests except my field of study for so, so, so long. That was okay for a while but eventually, I began to feel like there was a big pair of vises on my head squeezing my brain flat. :=D It really hasn;t been that long since I jumped ship s I'm still trying to get my brain back. He he.

But it's also one reason I'm such a lousy academic. I'm really impressed by people who can contain themselves to their field, but I can't. My brain gets very unhappy which, in turn makes me unhappy.

In the world of things to think about, I'm a grazer, not a specialist.
