Secret Places

A  L  O  H  A !

 " Such, such were the joys
When we all, girls and boys,
In our youth time were seen
On the Echoing Green ."


 “ All truly great thoughts
 are conceived
 while walking ”

 Friedrich Nietzsche

" Today was good. 
 Today was fun. 
Tomorrow is another one."
Dr. Seuss

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin
conducted an experiment 
with girls ages 7 to 12
in which they exposed the girls
 to the stress of speaking
to a group of strangers.
Afterward, a third of the girls
 were hugged by their mothers,
a third spoke to mom on the phone,
and a third 
watched a film.
While measured stress rose
 in the movie watchers,
the stress in both other groups
dropped equally.
"That a simple phone call
could have this 
physiological effect on oxytocin
is really exciting."
Co-investigator Seth Pollak 
told Scientific American.
