Myths, symbols & folklore
Liver: "It was believed among various peoples to be the seat of vital force, desires, anger, and love. Predictions of the future were made from the livers of animals; the Babylonians and the Etruscans had highly developed systems of interpretation. Eating liver was supposed to give one the power to dissolve magic spells." (Herder)

Heading off on a mini-vacation starting tomorrow to - somewhere. Basically, I'm getting in the car with my husband very early in the morning and driving, with a stack of CDs (yes, we're old fashioned) and a great deal of crappy food. From here, we're so close to a lot of fantastic stuff - Yosemite is only 3 hours away, so we may do that, though it's rotten with tourists (like us!) this time of year. Maybe Shasta. Maybe Cambria. We'll see.
Not much else to report this morning, so have a link: an interesting article on approaches to making "friends" with your inner critic.
