Be a person of character. Surround yourself with loving people. Do something good everyday, and then let your aura do the talking. As they say, “your actions speak so loudly that I can’t even hear what you say.”

Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about your joys.

I intend to confuse things,
to unite them, make them new-born
intermingle them, undress them,
until the light of the world
has the unity of the ocean,
a generous wholeness,
a fragrance alive and crackling.

#EarthDay: Geoscientists have identified a chunk of Africa stuck onto the southeastern United States.
A long mysterious zone of unusual magnetism that stretches from Alabama through Georgia and offshore to the North Carolina coast appears to be the suture between ancient rocks that formed when parts of Africa and North America were pressed together 250 million years ago. If so, Africa could have left a lot more behind in the American southeast when the conjoined continents rifted apart and formed the Atlantic Ocean.
"There are some large faults in the magnetic data," said geologist Robert Hatcher of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, regarding what is called the Brunswick Magnetic Anomaly and other magnetic features in the region. "They have not been active for a very long time. They are strike-slip faults like the San Andreas today. But there’s also younger fall with opposite direction."
The faults appear to be the remains of the collision and then messy divorce of Africa and North America.
"There was an attempt to rip away Florida and southern Georgia," said Hatcher. "So you have a failed rift there. We know there’s a suture there between African crust and newer crust from the Appalachians. There are pieces of crust that started in Africa."
A rift is what happens when the crust is pulled apart. When that happened 200 million years ago, 50 million years after African and North America collided, it appears to have started near the old collision zone, but then shifted to weaker crust to the east.
