Thank you so much for this information.

It's so good to be able to help in some way. I would not have known about PIH if not for this blog.


I second your recommendation of PIH! I first heard about the organization when I read Kidder's Mountains Beyond Mountains, which I really enjoyed. In addition to contributing directly to PIH, I use this to donate to them every time I search the 'net. (You can enter the names of another organization if you prefer.)

Thanks for helping us feel not so helpless in the face of such catastrophe.



Re: Fasting

Last Friday the NY Times published an article "The New Age Cavemen and the City". Along with following what they believe is a "paleolithic diet" (I would love your take on that approach, btw) they also periodically fast for 24 to 36 hours, which they believe was part of early man's experience.

I wonder about a link between the fasting of early man, and the practices of fasting as they developed in many religious traditions. Many practitioners of regular fasting say it is helpful and restful to the body, cleansing it and giving it a break from the task of digestion. There is no doubt in my mind that fasting is a powerful spiritual tool. I no longer practice religion, but part of my personal New Year tradition is to cleanse and fast prior to the New Year (I don't party hearty and then start a diet on Jan 1!) meditating on the year past, and the year to come, with ritual bathing and washing away the debris of the past to prepare for the future.
