I really enjoy the postings. This one is interesting as an example of the older style of teaching -- this is how it is. It's simple get it done. It can give hope because it is so clear; alternately, is it really that simple?
I have been curious about Barbara Ehrenrich's new book "Bright-Sided," which challenges positive thinking and the idea that if you change your thoughts you change your experience. She critiques that whole idea -- hard core. Thoughts?
I appreciate this and many of your postings -- but is it possible to list or even link to the source? It's helpful that you provide excerpts for a quick morning read, but often I want to read more of the piece or learn more about the author.
