…with Dr. Deepak Chopra. Monday. Sign up here.
I don’t own a TV, but I’ve been in a number of hotels lately, where I’ve been (unhealthily) glued to the video from Japan. The events themselves are horrific and underscore how fragile our planet is, how interconnected we all are, how life can change in an instant. But the TV coverage, wow, that’s a whole other matter and it’s a different sort of horror….I wish they would just stop and take a moment of silence and not continue with that ceaseless hyperbolic drum (“MONSTER QUAKE”), that speculative din and patter. When it first happened there was a woman in Louisiana relaying what her husband in Japan had told her in a three-minute phone conversation, as if that were news.
Anyhow, a few moments of silence, collectively, will do us all some good.
