Elif Shafak remarks about the power of fiction on Ted talk:

“We tend to form clusters based on similarity, and then we produce stereotypes about other clusters of people. In my opinion, one way of transcending these cultural ghettos is through the art of storytelling. Stories cannot demolish frontiers, but they can punch holes in our mental walls. And through those holes, we can get a glimpse of the other, and sometimes even like what we see.”

On exhibit at Asian Art Museum is:

EMPERORS’ TREASURES

CHINESE ART FROM THE NATIONAL PALACE MUSEUM, TAIPEI
JUN 17 — SEPT 18, 2016

 

This exhibit features

“more than 150 objects from one of the world’s greatest collections of Chinese art, more than half of which will be on view in the U.S. for the first time. Rarely seen outside the court at the time of their creation, these artworks inherited an aura of mystery that has fueled an enduring fascination. Characterized by their extraordinary splendor, beauty and richness, these objects represent the highlights of China’s artistic accomplishments.”

 

These masterpieces, spanning 800 years, come from the National Palace Museum, Taipei, Taiwan.  They survive wars, fires and a turbulent 20th century.  They have indeed come a very long way to the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.

Healthy Mind Platter

Seven daily essential mental activities to optimize brain matter and create well-being

Focus Time When we closely focus on tasks in a goal-oriented way, we take on challenges that make deep connections in the brain.

Play Time When we allow ourselves to be spontaneous or creative, playfully enjoying novel experiences, we help make new connections in the brain.

Connecting Time When we connect with other people, ideally in person, and when we take time to appreciate our connection to the natural world around us, we activate and reinforce the brain’s relational circuitry.

Physical Time When we move our bodies, aerobically if medically possible, we strengthen the brain in many ways.

Time In When we quietly reflect internally, focusing on sensations, images, feelings and thoughts, we help to better integrate the brain.

Down Time When we are non-focused, without any specific goal, and let our mind wander or simply relax, we help the brain recharge.

Sleep Time When we give the brain the rest it needs, we consolidate learning and recover from the experiences of the day.
