Asked to define beauty and you might proffer a ‘shopping list’ for this or that hair style, eye color, skin tone, or facial shape. But, as you will soon discover, beauty has a far more profound definition and criterion, yet preference for blondes vs. brunettes has nothing to do with it...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: We all know the old adage "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." For Ayurveda, beauty is multi-faceted, yet always originates from our inner light. Author, teacher and Ayurvedic Practitioner James Pace, CAy offers a special look into Ayurveda's tri-part approach to beauty. His insight into the depths of our beauty is truly breathtaking. Take a moment in this busy holiday season to look around you and see the radiating beauty of those in our lives and those we meet every day.

It doesn’t matter if you go running every morning, or you’re a regular at the gym. If you spend most of the rest of the day sitting — in your car, your office chair, on your sofa at home — you are putting yourself at increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, a variety of cancers and an early death...
Editor's Note: Prevention is ALWAYS better than cure. This article is by biologist and NY Times columnist, Olivia Judson, which she wrote on inactivity last year. I feel this can be very useful for doctors and patients. Waiting for the problem to find you first, before seeking out the best ways to alleviate it, is far from ideal. The last thing you want is to put yourself at risk and stopping you from doing what you love most. Enjoy!

A beloved retriever shared six life lessons with his master
For most of my life, I have been a cat person.
I have lived with little house-tigers that sharpened their claws on my couches, played midnight hockey with my hair ornaments and dragged my dirty laundry from the hamper to my pillow...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There is so much to learn about life - not only through our eyes but through the eyes of our four-legged friends. Sandi shares with us what she learned from her dog, Jordie.

Celtic is often thought to be peculiarly Irish but this isn’t so. Clairvoyants in the early 20th century journeyed to find a migration from a beginning in what is now the Gobi desert, was then a sea, across Asia and through Europe. Mary Renault tells the story of Hyppolyita’s people, the Amazon folk, in The Bull from the Sea. The story is born out by the Takla Mummies found in the Gobi desert with Celtic/Caucasian DNA, plaids, long red hair and other Celtic attributes...

Most people refer to it as a disability. I almost see it as a gift. To experience near death and be able to view life from a new positive perspective is something I have found many Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) survivors have in common...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I met Scott Trevelyan, a visual artist on the North Coast of NSW, Australia, via an international art therapy project. Scott used printmaking techniques as a cathartic tool to overcome life-threatening injuries sustained in a traumatic motorcycle accident in 2002. He currently runs art therapy classes for Acquired Brain Injury survivors at his wheelchair-friendly, purpose built studio, ‘Willowbank Studio’.
