I spent part of the day today at Mana Contemporary-- an artist loft building--   in the Pilsen section of Chicago. It's a six story building with over 100 artists and fast growing to many more. We roved the floors checking out artists lofts, chatting with the artists.

One artist, Sabri Reed, who does performance art ( ,) had a thought bubble on a wall, about apples. After over a half hour talking with her and her loft-mate, Andrew Barco, my eyes landed on a thought bubble she'd created. I liked it. What do I know. I'm no art critic. But it evoked an idea and image that was pleasing. 

Here's she is, with her thought bubble, with the text below.

"There is a certain violence rendered on one's thoughts by the act of eating an apple--
the crispness breaking down loudly, resounding in your head.
It's only after, as the sweetness ligers, that thoughts are seduced to emerge." 

See some of Sabri's work at and the work she's done in collaboration with Andrew Barco at

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
