Nestling in the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy, 30 miles from the ancient city of Turin, lies the valley of Valchiusella. Peppered with medieval villages, the hillside scenery is certainly picturesque.

Last night
the moon shown through the blinds
illuminating the vast emptiness
of our . . .
of my bed.
Since you left
I have clung to the safety of the edge
afraid of the emptiness
afraid to feel lost without you
afraid to not leave a space for your return . . .

Last night was one year

claiming it

When it comes to the matter of desire, evolution leaves little to chance. Human sexual behavior is not a free-form performance, biologists are finding, but is guided at every turn by genetic programs.

Women’s brains may be organized to select men who seem likely to provide for them and their children. The d... read more

"For years the prevailing psychological view of happiness is that the feeling, termed subjective well-being, emanates from within and is largely independent of our life circumstances. The wealthy aren’t much happier than the middle class, married people aren’t much happier than single people, healthy people aren’t much happier than sick people, and so on. . . .

But new research, and reexamination of old research, is challenging some of the claims of set-point theory."
