Hey there. I came because you asked. It is interesting! I'm a lefty and very left everything. I love researching lefty stuff. I went through a big lefty phase when I wrote an article about being eft-handed. I did a lot of reserch and found so many interesting things that I kept researching after the essay was finished. Thanks for that.

Hi Ann,
You write such a wonderful blog. I've remembered to bookmark it this time. You give me much to think about, and I appreciate that. I spend time every morning in contemplation. It is probably the most important part of any day for me. Quiet and time to myself are what keep me centered in my life. I remember when I was nine years old simply longing to acheive a certain place of peace that I equated to a blank wall, when I described it to my mother. A place where everything was absolutely still, and quiet in my mind's eye. I kept thinking if I could just feel that for one moment, then I'd acheive understanding. I've always thought a lot about such things.

Thank you for visiting my site, and sharing your thoughts from time to time. I think we are all mostly doing the best that can in a given moment. I'm sure you did so with your daughter, and that she now has an understanding that transcends the sometimes less than "perfect" days.

Take care.

How interesting! I had an experience like that, where the left hemisphere shuts down, once. It was towards the end of a long rebirthing process (yes I am from California). I remember that silence she talks about (though I could hear people's voices very clearly, but in a very disattached way) and a feeling that everything was perfect, though what I meant by that I could not have said. I remember that profound peace she talks about. As I slowly came out of that state, I said "I know that I'm here" and felt that that was all I knew - very present tense, as she said.

That was almost 20 years ago. I have had no desire to chase the experience.
