The first song is about Resurrection Mary and the second is called Phantom 309. I hope you enjoy them.
And now for some not so scary monsters.
Japanese folklore and horror stories are known for their psychologically terrifying ghosts and monsters that prey on the minds and bodies of humans. For some of the most horrific examples, one need look no further than the Japanese horror boom of the early 2000’s, with the likes of The Ring and The Grudge introducing the west to a new, iconic generation of supernatural villains.
But there’s also a lighter side to Japanese folklore, where bumbling spirits cause only mild annoyance, actually enhance your daily life, and otherwise generally botch the whole job of haunting mankind and teaching vague moral lessons about treating your parents with respect and such.

This is a song written by David G Lanoue based off of Issa’s Haiku.
tsuyu no yo wa tsuyu no yo nagara sari nagara

Thank you to my daughter for the performance and to David for permission to use the song.

Tells her she’s not alone
They watch lazy smoke rings curl
On a dewdrop
That they can’t stop
Fading dewdrop world

ME AND FREDDIE AS… SIMS?
Every now and then something comes into my inbox which is beautiful and extraordinary. And completely unexpected.
Here is a video made by someone I have never met, from elements of an existing video game, depicting a true story.
It absolutely captured my heart. I asked her if she’d allow me to share it with my ‘readers’ and she’s kindly said yes.
So here, created by Mia from ‘Sims 3’ characters she created herself, is a film …
based on one of my favourite and lesser-known QUEEN tracks ….

In need of a break? Here is the schedule of retreats for the Little Village Buddhist Meditation Hall.
We are so excited to release a meditation schedule starting June 1 2014!
Estamos muy contentos de lanzar un programa de meditación a partir 01 de junio 2014!
We’ll be offering weekly meditation every Sunday. This weekend meditation is our formal practice, but the everyday life is the real practice. This is where the breath hits the road and eases our struggle with the whole range of varieties of suffering, or dukkha, in every day life.
Ofreceremos la meditación semanal todos los domingos. Esta meditación fin de semana es nuestra práctica formal, pero la vida cotidiana es la práctica real. Aquí es donde el aire sale a la carretera y facilita nuestra lucha con toda la gama de variedades de sufrimiento o dukkha, en la vida cotidiana.
