Welcome back! Thanks for reading again. I don’t have much for you this week. But, there are three things to, hopefully, initiate some thought.

TED Talk – This week I watched a short TED talk about mindfulness. The talk is by mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe. Puddicombe, a former Buddhist  monk talks about the importance of taking a break – from everything. The talk is worth the 10-minute investment. All it Takes is Ten Minutes 

Interesting study –  Do you think food tastes better with some music? There may be proof that you are right. Professor Charles Spence (Wikipedia) is conducting research on how sound and music affect taste. Prof. Spence is an experimental psychologist at the University of Oxford. Here is the Oxford website for the study of food. And, here is the sound and taste study abstract.

Quote to ponder - “Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of”. Charles Richards. BrainyQuote.com, Xplore Inc, 2016. http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/c/charlesric170739.html, accessed June 24, 2016.
