Beyond creativity, crafts and hobbies (but don't stop!)

I'm always keen to encourage people to make, mend, improve, create ANYTHING, rather than be a passive consumer.  But the best aspect of having busy hands goes beyond the product - when one's hands are busy, the mind has space to be receptive - and this is when the best insights, ideas, resolutions rise mysteriously to the surface. Making your own clothes, food, whatever reduces alienation,

The Second Book of Job - poem

The Second Book of Job Darkness Past F is for fear the steps lead down through cobwebs and damp to a tomb underground through memories lost embedded in ice trials and torments from lovers of vice all that destroy you those icons of lethargy feed their projections on unconscious envy all that control you say love is too dear and build domination on unconscious fear

William Dalrymple - From the Holy Mountain

Subtitled 'A journey in the shadow of Byzantium', makes for interesting travel/adventure reading, and there are excellent photos. Given the subject matter, I'm surprised there is little about the psychology of religion, since the tales of misery that William unearths are all about the psychological experience of the 'divine' (broadly speaking) and the appalling mess that institutionalised belief

Tales From Topographic Oceans – Yes

An instrumental masterpiece, double LP from 1973. Steve Howe of Yes Playing Side 3 of Tales from Topographic Oceans A write up on Amazon says: TALES FROM THE TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS (1973) -- an album that (to me) is one of the most unique, transcendent, ethereal and spiritual records I've ever heard. The material on this album I can't recall hearing on any other Yes album, the melodies, the
