    • I’ve been reading through some of Lewis Thomas quotes and started reading “The Lives of the Cells”. http://www.arvindguptatoys.com/arvindgupta/cell.pdf Let me know if you ever run across it before I do. You ‘know’ I’m a quote junkie. 😉

      I was trying to think of another quote that’s similar to Peace Pilgrim’s but can’t for the life of me find it. For some reason I was thinking it was by Bell Hooks, but have yet to find it. I once had it posted in one of my past forum profiles. Wished I had saved it to my quote file.

      Lew, I’m glad you will be a regular here, and I plan to be a regular in your blog as well. Thank you for your support and thoughtfulness.

  2. Hi!

    I discovered your blog through Carrie at http://littleblogoflettinggo.com

    It looks like a really interesting place and I look forward to reading up on and commenting on your posts soon! Was a neuroscience/consciousness researcher for a while and love the idea of using the research to improve people’s lives rather than use it to figure out how best to manipulate people out of money (I studied Neuroeconomics in an fMRI lab for a while…).

    You can check me out at tucsonblonde.wordpress.com or for a little while longer, at a poetry blog that I’m finishing up (it was a 180 day project that Carrie gave me an award for) at 108plus.wordpress.com.


    • Hi Jess, thanks so much for your comment, like, and follow. I popped in to check out your blog, and I look forward to reading it as time permits. That’s cool that you studied Neuroeconomics in an fMRI lab. I couldn’t agree more with regard to using neural research to improve lives. Unfortunately, Neuromarketing has exploded, giving corporations the upper hand in ways that are disadvantageous to humans, other species, and our planet.

      Congrats on your award. Carrie has been an inspiration to so many, and I admire her fortitude and compassion.

      It’s a pleasure to meet you. 🙂

  3. Hi Victoria,
    Lovely to connect with you, I really look forward to following your work.

  4. Hi Christy, YAY, so nice of you to pop in and leave a comment. Thank you for the follow and the likes. I peeked into your blog and look forward to reading your postings. You are an inspiration, to say the least.

    With much admiration,


  5. Your blog is interesting to say the least, and you provide a lot of relevant data. With this comment, you’ll get my email. Feel free to contact me (ref. your B.B.W. post).

  6. Thanks for taking a peek around my blog. You should have my email addy, too, so as mentioned in my earlier response to you on B.B.W, I’d like to read anything you’ve posted about PTSD. If you have some, please send them my way. It’s nice to meet a fellow comrade, and thanks again for stopping by.


  7. Victoria,
    Thank you so much for following BigBodyBeautiful, sweetheart. I’m having a blast exploring your blog; this is very cool stuff! You can count me among your followers now, too. So glad we have met and can connect on such interesting subjects. 🙂

    • Hey Lizzy,
      I’m so glad you dropped by. I’m especially glad our paths crossed on Black Box Warnings, so I had to take a peek on your blog, too. You are incredibly inspiring. In the type of culture we are living in, body image appears to pretty much effect all women, no matter their size. I’m looking forward to reading your blog. Thanks for following, btw.

      *big hug*

      PS — I have another blog (see menu or gravatar) — it’s not so intense, well for the most part. lol Stop by some time. xx

    • GG, my apologies for taking so long to respond. I should how known better to start a second blog, lol. This blog is more advocacy oriented, where as my other blog tends to be personal. Because I’ve needed that personal outlet lately, this one hasn’t had as much activity. However, I plan to post more eye-opening articles about how culture profoundly affects our brain/behavior, thus our species.

      The next post (hopefully soon) will be about a comprehensive study by the CDC which included close to 18,000 people. What they discovered was shocking, and it holds the key to global peace, well-being and the survival of our species.

      Thanks so much for stopping by. =)

  8. Hi Victoria, Sorry to post this question here, but I didn’t know of a good spot to put it. What do you think about large doses of fish oil used to repair the brain. I don’t know if you saw that article on CNN a few weeks ago about the kid who had a brain injury and his parents/doctors gave him large doses of fish oil because the omegas are the building blocks of the brain. Do you have any thoughts on this?

  9. Here’s a video with a cool guy named Bruce Perry. He’s an MD working on how trauma effects the brains of kids. He runs a center in Dallas. Also, he wrote a very good book, “The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog.”
