Stumble Upon

In the last few days I've received quite a few visitors (over 3000 in the last three days) through "Stumble Upon", a web2.0 style site sharing/search engine. Since then I've installed the program and tried it out, and I really like it. Through Stumble Upon you can find sites via user recommendations. The users find really interesting sites that you would never come across by using regular search engines.

Someone asked a Zen Master, "How do you practice Zen?"

The master said, "When you are hungry, eat; when you are tired, sleep."

"Isn't that what everyone does anyway?"

The master replied, "No, No. Most people entertains a thousand desires when they eat and scheme over a thousand plans when they sleep."

Relaxation Video

This is a relaxation video I found while surfing. The picturesque scenery is succesfully captured in the film, and the music matches wonderfully.

Here are a few words from the site and a link so you can go see it for yourself:

Virtual Serenity: The Journey Within

This relaxation video offers a simple and pleasant way to diminish the effects of life's usual worries and concerns.

Virtual Serenity: The Journey Within features live scenic views of Lake Tahoe, California’s Big Sur beaches, majestic Redwoods and the Native American flute soundtrack by Coyote Oldman, one of America’s popular New Age instrumentalist.

Tyrella Beach, Co. Down, Northern Ireland.


I saw this photo on the flickr.com website. I was impressed by the deep, bold colors, and the symetrical balance.

It was taken at Tyrella Beach in Northern Ireland. I'm afraid it isn't quite as spectacular in this small format as it is full size. Check out the full size photo by clicking here
