Bliss comes in many forms and what is considered bliss differs from person to person, but I am sure that there are trends. One form that bliss takes for me is yoga. Doing yoga was the first time in my life that I experienced complete happiness and satisfaction with myself. I stopped judging and criticizing and just marveled at what my body is capable of.

Yoga with Tara Stiles

There are a lot of wonderful and inspiring yoga teachers out there. Usually though if you want to learn from them you have to buy their book or DVD or travel to a distant city where they usually teach. Not so in the case of Tara Stiles who posts wonderful yoga instruction segments on her Youtube channel TaraStilesLiving.

eye candy has a great collection of images of microscope photography. One of the most exciting aspects of being a biologist is being able to look into the world of tiny things and marvel at their complexity and detail. I think images like these will spark an interest in science in anyone and maybe even the desire to find out more about the object being photographed. Photos are one of the major ways that people relate with one another and share their experiences. It is a great way for scientists to share their work with non-scientists and generate excitement and curiosity.
