Here on Harbord street many of the parking spaces are being converted into covid-era restaurant patios so all our culinary neighbours can continue to do their best for as many people as safely as is possible. Wiener's Home Hardware is our favourite hardware store. I went there yesterday and the nice man at the front had me stand on a red circle while he went and had a look-see for what I asked for. Once I had my stuff I went to another red circle on the floor for my place in line. It was magnificent. We are working on a plan but we are not at spiffy level yet.   

I have either had the great fortune to see many of our masked regulars during curbside pickups or I have enjoyed hearing their voices as they pickup from one of my colleagues. Both scenarios are a treat I tell you.

I have not had a haircut since October. This is obviously not all the pandemic's fault but I have also appreciated seeing other people with their equally seasoned locks. It is an awesome time for Lord of the Rings fans.

I found three bookstores that are lovely. Each has their own locale and speciality. On Jane street, comfortably south of Annette, is Moonbeam Books. If you continue west you may find Cafe Books in Banff or, if you were heading the other direction, there is Scheherazade Books in St. John, New Brunswick. All of these sanctuaries do different stuff than we do but, if it turns out you live right by any of them and did not know, please go and take a look at their magic. Be it in person, virtually, or a mixture.

One of our splendid regulars is Marina. Marina let me know about a wonderful podcast yesterday. 'Any of you enjoy podcasts? This one is called The Science of Psychotherapy. It is wonderful. I urge you to investigate for yourself. Thank you Marina.

For those of you with your ear to the ground regarding the complete Freud set you may be interested in this somewhat recent interview with Mark Solms. This handsome devil has been revising the complete works of Freud for a bit. The interview is a grand read.

Please stay tuned for more info on events, seminars, and the like from our friends at SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health and Leading Edge Seminars. Summer snooze time is winding to a close you see.

You will be shocked to see that we have not run out of new titles to tell you about. Please take a look at all of them as you will not regret it. A big list is here. Let August be wonderful. Thank you very much for being yourselves.  Here is a joke I learned from my friend Chloé: What do you call a pile of kittens? A Meowntain.

F*ck Like a Goddess: Heal Yourself. Reclaim Your Voice. Stand in Your Power.
Alexandra Roxo

What if your deepest fears and wounds were the KEY to living a turned on, passionate life, sharing your gifts with the world, and having mind-blowing orgasms along the way? And what if you could embrace all of you—all of your messy, wild, raw, sensual self—exactly as you are right now AND still feel good? This is what it means to f*ck like a goddess—literally and metaphorically. To let life make love to you and enjoy every bit, even the parts that hurt, and to find the magic in all of it.

Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts, Third Edition
Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson

When we make mistakes, cling to outdated attitudes, or mistreat other people, we must calm the cognitive dissonance that jars our feelings of self-worth. And so, unconsciously, we create fictions that absolve us of responsibility, restoring our belief that we are smart, moral, and right—a belief that often keeps us on a course that is dumb, immoral, and wrong. [More. . .]

The Great Pretender: The Undercover Mission That Changed Our Understanding of Madness
Susannah Cahalan 

Doctors have struggled for centuries to define insanity--how do you diagnose it, how do you treat it, how do you even know what it is? In search of an answer, in the 1970s a Stanford psychologist named David Rosenhan and seven other people--sane, healthy, well-adjusted members of society--went undercover into asylums around America to test the legitimacy of psychiatry's labels. Forced to remain inside until they'd "proven" themselves sane, all eight emerged with alarming diagnoses and even more troubling stories of their treatment. Rosenhan's watershed study broke open the field of psychiatry, closing down institutions and changing mental health diagnosis forever. [More. . .]

How Do You Feel?: An Interoceptive Moment with Your Neurobiological Self
A. D. Craig

How Do You Feel? brings together startling evidence from neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry to present revolutionary new insights into how our brains enable us to experience the range of sensations and mental states known as feelings. Drawing on his own cutting-edge research, neurobiologist Bud Craig has identified an area deep inside the mammalian brain—the insular cortex—as the place where interoception, or the processing of bodily stimuli, generates feelings.  [More. . .]

Kari, Matt, Capstone eh? Xena keeps this freshly published, deluxe edition, of Freud's Interpretation of Dreams ready for when she wakes up from her nap.
