The Differences Between East and West

This is a great video that I found that demonstrates the differences in Indian mythology and western culture.  It is not just a comparison of gods, it is an explanation of thought.  Check it out and let me know what you think of it.

This was WONDERFUL! The speaker did a great job of showing the difference in perspectives. Thank you so much for posting this. :)

Anything for my favorite romance writer! Glad you enjoyed it.

My classes and I had a bet on the Iditarod this year. We all picked mushers and if their musher beat mine, then we had a free day. If mine beat theirs, then they had a day of grammar. I, of course, picked Dallas Seavey. I'm saying this because I assume that since you are from Alaska, you must (naturally) be all into the dog sled racing up there. I checked the roster for your name and was disappointed when I didn't see it. What gives? Think of the publicity that would give your books! :)

Wow, I should have thought about that -- you're right, it would be incredible promo! Right up until I tripped, fell off the sled and the dogs finished without me....

Good choice with Seavey! I like his dogs, Guinness and Diesel. Here's a link to a great interview/article from NPR. http://www.npr.org/2012/03/20/149002199/iditarod-winner-dallas-seavey-raced-against-family
