My desk at court is quite pleasantly situated. I look into an internal courtyard that is spacious and filled with light from numerous skylights. "Catwalks" connect the various parts of the building. There's a fountain and trees on the ground floor. The glass between the library (where my desk sits) and the courtyard is thick enough that sounds are muted into white-ish noise.

Just FYI.

(Hmm... I've attempted to post a pic of the view from my desk but it's not showing up for me. Can someone let me know if you can see it?)

I kind of like the taste of pond scum in the morning. I don't know if it's just a placebo effect, but I've felt happier this last week. *slight shrug*

Don't laugh: a health-freak friend of mine persuaded me to order some algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) for consumption. It arrived "alive" in frozen state on my doorstep this afternoon. It came from a lake in Oregon. I have been assured it is of the finest quality and not at all toxic (my health freak friend has taken it for years).

I'm supposed to keep it in the freezer and every week thaw some and put in a little bottle. 1-2 teaspoons to start, then gradually up the intake...


It tastes, btw, very *green.*

If you're curious, this is from http://e3live.com:

"Mr. Drapeau, a foremost scientist in the study of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, holds a Masters of Science degree in Neurology and Neurosurgery from the Montreal Neurological Institute, an affiliate of McGill University, Montreal, Canada, and has been extensively involved in the study of nutrition, naturopathy and various natural therapies.
Most significantly, Mr. Drapeau collaborated with many scientists affiliated with Harvard University, McGill University, the University of Illinois, Oregon State University, the University of New Mexico and the University of Mississippi in the study of the effects of blue-green algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) on human health. Mr. Drapeau continues his involvement in the clinical study of AFA:

'The health benefits of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) have been reported for more than two decades, yet it is only recently that science has revealed the mechanisms by which AFA acts on the body, and the astonishing health benefits of AFA. AFA contains a wide variety of phytonutrients that promote health, such as chlorophyll, carotenoids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. AFA contains unique molecules that modulate various aspects of human health such as:

* Phenylethylamine (PEA) known as the "molecule of love." Beside enhancing concentration and attention, PEA is a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant.
* Phycocyanin, the blue pigment in AFA, which is a natural selective COX-2 inhibitor with strong anti-inflammatory properties.
* A polysaccharide that stimulates the migration of immune cells in the body; the only natural compound known to stimulate immune cell migration.

But the most extraordinary discovery is the ability of AFA to stimulate stem cell release and migration, making AFA the first natural compound known to stimulate the natural innate phenomenon of healing, regeneration and repair in the human body.'"

I finally got around to reading this book.

What does it mean that it was not surprising/shocking/eye-opening/deeply moving/transformative for me? People describe their first Rand literary experiences in these ways...

Perhaps because I should have read it at age 16?...

Atlas Shrugged, next.
