    Meditation and its Benefits!

    To begin, I should state that I am not an expert, but rather someone who enjoys and tries to meditate on a regular basis.In meditation we learn to pay attention to the breath when it comes in and out during meditation, and to note when the mind wanders away from this task. Returning to the breath strengthens the muscles of concentration and mindfulness.When we focus on our breath, we are learning how to intentionally return to and stay in the present moment—how to anchor ourselves in the here and now without judgment. Does Meditation Help? Although meditation isn’t a universal answer, it can help you create some much-needed breathing room…

    Agatha Christie’s three books I loved!

    Agatha Christie was a well-known mystery author in her day. Her story’s suspense and thrill are unparalleled in today’s world.I’m not sure if today’s mystery writers will create works of such enduring appeal for future generations; I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Because of the snow, the train is stuck where it is; restricting the movements of all potential culprits and rendering escape impossible. This, of course, sets up the perfect mystery, so we…

    Top 5 must watch Korean Drama’s on Netflix.

    Despite the fact that there are many good Korean dramas out there with good content, story lines, actors/actresses, plots, and genres, I have narrowed down my list to just 5 dramas that I highly recommend for their content, story lines, actors/actresses, plots, and genres.

    Feeling the feels of 2020! My Musings.

    What we all felt in 2020 I started writing this post in January but somehow I just couldn’t finish it for the longest time. when we think of year 2020 we all felt Overwhelmed, anxious, optimistic, inspired, depressed, afraid, lonely, despondent, kind, open, fired up, and silent. This is the range of emotions that the majority of us have felt on a regular basis this year.

    Must read Top 5 Biographies!

    I love biographies in almost any form; there’s something thrilling about peering behind the curtain of the wealthy, and influential and attempting to understand their experiences and psychology. Here are My Top 5 favorite Biographies. 1. Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance Musk is depicted in the book as both a ruthless egomaniacal sadist; and a loving, benevolent visionary, leaving you undecided on whether to respect or despise him as a person; maybe both. Despite the fact that it is made abundantly clear in the final pages that the author has sided with Musk in almost every controversial case in his life; with enough information is given to support the contrary…

    Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman : Book Review

    The Plot The worlds of Thor, Loki, and Odin are popular thanks to Marvel. Gaiman follows in that footsteps. In his Norse Mythology, these are also the three main characters. Odin is the gods’ lord, highest and oldest. Thor, his son, is the most powerful, wielding Mjollnir, a hammer forged by dwarfs. Loki is a master manipulator who sometimes offends the gods with his shenanigans. Freya is the lovely lady with a mind of her own. The first few pages are a little tedious because they include an introduction to Asgard, the world of Norse mythology—we’re mostly bombarded with new titles, gods’ equipment, and so on. After that, we’ll move…

    “Dark” A Mind-Boggling Netflix Show

    Aptly named show! Netflix’s enthralling new German-language series is appropriately titled “Dark.”The 10-episode season spends a lot of time in gloomy houses and unlit garages, amid an alarmingly uncomfortable forest; and a subterranean cave, or under sickly, wobbly lights that suggests a widespread moral decay. The series is conceptually bleak, lies, gruesome murders, and dead birds raining down in a hail of limp, twisted corpses. It’s a series that’s supposed to be watched late at night, with the lights turned off, like a ghost story told around a smoldering campfire. A Mind scrambling and thrilling plot To get the most out of the Dark, you must be able to do…
