Re: “Marcus Gardley's Memories of West Oakland

The play is fantastic. The writing, the acting, the singing will cradle you in this 125 year old theatrical space that has deep roots in Oakland. A talented cast of 18 put out an amazing feast. Go see it!

Re: “Fitness for Your Brain

"A session of "laughter yoga;"

"Facilitators will use similarly wacky approaches to tackle some challenging bodies of thought;"

"I'm interested in what happens if you're being forced to move and think about global risk managemen;"

"Cosmoconvulsive Anxiothenics;"

"Reichian somatics, full-corpus spasms, and galactic tingles;"

"An underwater audio installation and a lecture on the Aristotelian concept of topos through a feminist lens;"

Uh-huh. Sounds just like what Albert E., Stephen H. and their physicist/philosopher chums have done along.

Meanwhile I'm going to go for a walk in Redwood Park and afterwards read my book.

Re: “Pressing Where It's Painful

Tender points were a ripoff of mysofacial touch points which are supposed to be sensitive in healthy people. There are a lot more mysofacial than tender points and there was never a consensus on which ones to use; many reputable clinics used very different charts. They have not been used to diagnose fibromyalgia in over 10 years, the official reason being that more women were being diagnosed than men.

In 2010 they started using a survey to "diagnose" fibromyalgia . The WideSpread Pain Areas make up most of the body. If you've had pain in 3 of them in the last week and claim severe insomnia, fatigue and cognitive issues you qualify for the worthless label. If you don't have one of these, you can still get it by claiming a great deal of other symptoms, for which there are no right or wrong answers. fibromyass.com/#touch and fibromyass.com/#now

Re: “The Power of Play

I loved that you wrote about using intelligent humor that didn't belittle him, but that came out of really listening to him and was his kind of play. And I liked that the goal was to reconnect to him first, so that his feelings could pour out, and then he could absorb and re-remember that he really could do it. Great article, thanks! Megan

Re: “The Writhing on the Wall

Very, very minor quibble... Gilman did not write the story in 1892, but in 1890 (actually, on this exact date in 1890 as I write this). It took her some time to find a publisher. See: http://americanliteraryblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/gilman-color-is-repellant.html
