Let us not assign a value to a journey based solely on how long it took to get to our destination. Looking back upon this extraordinary experience I have few regrets. And those would be the times when I concealed and repressed my observations and true feelings out of fear of losing a most precious person. In reflectionthese have been the most creative two years ever. I was awakened to my calling again (acting and writing) and my health certainly is an example of the path I chose to follow. I wish for each of you to find the courage to go beyond your comfort zone. Oh yes, well meet again and share our adventures with all that includes. And connected to the best that has been given to me by God, I feel exhilarated by all that took place and most importantlyI still believe in the Power of LOVE

About the author

About the author: Arlene Martel is an American actor with a career spanning four decades beginning in the 1950s in New York city at the High School of Performing Arts. “I was single, celibate and accepting a life that did not include a “partner.” I had known some legendary lovers and had been married to three different men (not all at the same time of course)...and thought it might be fun to expand my circle of friends. Imagine my surprise to find myself gradually ensnared in a net of love. At the time, both of us were groping through the tangle of confusion (like seaweed) in our personal lives. Yet something was becoming quite clear, compelling us to unite and face the challenges...as they inevitably would occur.” Arlene Martel: “You may already know me as “T’Pring” in “Amok Time” Spock’s Vulcan wife from the original Star Trek series. Or...perhaps you knew me as “Consuelo” from the Outer Limits episode of Harlan Ellison’s “Demon With a Glass Hand.” The fact is you have never known me as I will be revealed in these pages...” This book is part of my own true story...perhaps it’s part of yours as well.” Jeff Minniti: When two very different lives intersect, expect the unexpected. I learned that firsthand. I certainly never envisioned a relationship with “T'Pring.” She was an iconic character on the original Star Trek series in the episode “Amok Time”... who attracted me through her palpable sensuality. She captured my attention in ways I’m sure you can imagine. I loved the way she uttered the word "Specify" and I was entranced by those intensely soulful eyes. Now THAT was escapism for a shy 10 year-old boy growing up in sleepy San Leandro. I never anticipated becoming a “leading man” in Arlene’s life. I discovered that Arlene was as formidable in her own life as “T’Pring” was in hers. Both ran “amok” with my heart. Through a series of intimate emails, we want to share our unique relationship with you. The love...the heartache....the reawakening.

The landmark work on mindfulness, meditation, and healing, now revised and updated after twenty-five years
 
Stress. It can sap our energy, undermine  our health if we let it, even shorten our lives. It makes us more vulnerable to anxiety and depression, disconnection and disease. Based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s renowned mindfulness-based stress reduction program, this classic, groundbreaking work—which gave rise to a whole new field in medicine and psychology—shows you how to use medically proven mind-body approaches derived from meditation and yoga to counteract stress, establish greater balance of body and mind, and stimulate well-being and healing. By engaging in these mindfulness practices and integrating them into your life from moment to moment and from day to day, you can learn to manage chronic pain, promote optimal healing, reduce anxiety and feelings of panic, and improve the overall quality of your life, relationships, and social networks. This second edition features results from recent studies on the science of mindfulness, a new Introduction, up-to-date statistics, and an extensive updated reading list. Full Catastrophe Living is a book for the young and the old, the well and the ill, and anyone trying to live a healthier and saner life in our fast-paced world.

An Ounce of Hydrogen Peroxide is Worth a Pound of Cure

Hydrogen peroxide is trusted by every hospital and emergency room in the country for its remarkable ability to kill deadly germs like E. coli and the swine flu virus. In fact, it has attracted so much interest from doctors that over 6000 articles about it have appeared in scientific publications around the world.
Research has discovered that hydrogen peroxide enables your immune system to function properly and fight infection and disease. Doctors have found it can shrink tumors and treat allergies, Alzheimer’s, asthma, clogged arteries, diabetes, digestive problems and migraine headaches.
Smart consumers nationwide are also discovering there are hundreds of health cures and home remedy uses for hydrogen peroxide. A new book called The Magic of Hydrogen Peroxide is now available that tells you exactly how to use hydrogen peroxide by itself... and mixed with simple everyday kitchen items... to make liniments, rubs, lotions, soaks and tonics that treat a wide variety of ailments.
It contains tested and proven health cures that do everything from relieving chronic pain to making age spots go away. You’ll be amazed to see how a little hydrogen peroxide mixed with a pinch of this or that from your cupboard can:
•    Relieve the pain of arthritis, rheumatism and fibromyalgia
•    Treat athlete’s foot
•    Clear up allergies and sinus problems
•    Soothe sore throats
•    Fight colds and flu
•    Help heal boils and skin infections

Besides killing E. coli and the swine flu virus, hydrogen peroxide also destroys botulism, salmonella and other harmful organisms. It works by making viruses and bacteria self-destruct on the cellular level. Amazingly, for something so powerful, hydrogen peroxide is safe. That’s because after it makes germs self-destruct, hydrogen peroxide breaks down into harmless water.
