Setsuko, yes she was quite adept. Her beauty routines were milk baths with roses and lavendar and she wore neroli and jasmine around CAesar and Antony.

IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY by Setsuko Tsuchiya  - Excerpt #2 (This Excerpt is Family Rated)

[12625245-setsuko-tsuchiyas-in-search-of-somatic-therapy-savant-2017] 

[Ancient Greece's] most important contribution, I think, is the introduction of the idea of rhythm as a method of healing….

"Of the "rhythms," one that constantly appears central to both dancing massage is breathing. The ancient Greeks held that the psyche—that which animates the body—is in fact the breath."

-----

Originally from Japan, Setsuko Tsuchiya traveled to the USA and earned a BA in Liberal Arts in Dance from Thomas Edison University while studying medical massage therapy at Hawaii College of Health Sciences.  After becoming a licensed medical massage therapist, she began wondering if there might be a truly fundamental commonality among the burgeoning number of somatic therapies, one independent of language and applicable to most cultures.

"My search for somatic therapy began with competitive DanceSport, and took me back in time to the ancient Greeks," said Tsuchiya. "There I learned about eurythmy and followed it through to the present, in the process exploring every form of 'body' therapy I could locate. The result was a set of fundamental movements that provide a new, working definition of somatic therapy."

You will be just about ending for the day. Just wanted to  say Thanks for your kind words about Chang The Magic Cat.  Yes, I enjoyed writing it and happy people are accepting the genre. A light heart ed  story is a tonic to a reader in these days.


AG,

I've got a public appearance in half an hour, so it's time for me to say "good-bye."  I've enjoyed chatting. English is my second language (Japanese is my first), so I find chatting challenging. [biggrin]

CHANG THE MAGIC CAT (Savant 2017) has sort of eclipsed A. G. Hayes' seventh Koski and Falk novel, THE SOLAR TRIANGLE (Savant 2017) which well deserves comment. I'm a fan of thrillers, as you can see by my having a thriller author pen name, Raymond Gaynor, and having had the distinct privilege of writing QUANTUM DEATH (Savant 2017) with A. G. Hayes. 

Everything today is solar, solar, solar. But it's nothing compared to solar in THE SOLAR TRIANGLE. I didn't just read this book, it was so timely and engaging, I sweated all the way through it! It's a read I couldn't put down.

Yes, the movements in dance will cause a greater epigenetic change than talk therapy.
Of course one's self talk can be either positive or negative as an epigenetic input.
I note sadly that most "news" is very negative and thus bad for one's epigenetics.

Yes, The Solar Triangle is a great thriller and has some great twists. Helen and I enjoyed it greatly.

Hey, it's getting close to the end of the hour for a free copy of A WHALE'S TALE (Savant 2008) with CD in which Lynn Whitener reads the story!  I haven't yet seen even one set of answers to my eight questions, despite providing easy hints. If you're interested in a free book and CD from me, be sure to post your answers in the next 10 minutes!  

A few words about Giveaways. First, they work. When folks work to get something, they tend to remember the author's name and book title, whether they "win" or not. Second, the purpose of the questions isn't to be difficult or tricky, but to have the public learn something(s) interesting about the story or author. Lastly, they can animate a chat nicely. 

So...I'm waiting!  Only 10 minutes left!

Being at our headquarters in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am privileged to be able to watch the sunrise above the mountains, dappling the waves at Waikiki with sparkles while sipping on my mango-passionfruit herbal tea. Ah-h-h. As Michael said, what a wonderful way to improve one's epigenetics.  

And now that I've revealed one of my other pen-names, namely that of Raymond Gaynor, it's time to post a few excerpts from the book by A. G. Hayes' QUANTUM DEATH (Savant 2017) written with Raymond Gaynor:

QUANTUM DEATH by A. G. Hayes with Raymond Gaynor - Excerpt #1 (This Excerpt is Family Rated):

[12541533-quantum-death-by-hayes-with-raymond-gaynor] 

     Susan Koski eased out of bed without making a sound. Joseph Falk never moved, the top of his head showing from beneath the covers assured her he was fast asleep. Slowly she crept to the bedroom door, turned the knob...and the bedside phone rang.
     Koski immediately recognized the voice of their boss, Tom Stewart, head of Cerberus, America's ultra-secret "off the board" information and action agency. 

     "[Both of ] you on the line,?" Stewart asked, continuing a moment later, "Good. Now...listen up." 

     There was a soft click and the tone on the line changed. Both Koski and Falk knew what was coming was top secret. "We have a problem." 

     Koski looked across the bed, raised her eyebrows and mouthed the words...Happy Birthday. 

-----

Koski and Falk come up against what very well may prove to be their most complex and dangerous case yet: The Quantum Death Machine. For the first time, Koski and Falk must separate during a mission. Each faces mortal peril, while, at the same time, their smoldering relationship begins to heat up. The fifth in the riveting Koski and Falk Series by multi-award-winning author A. G. Hayes with Raymond Gaynor, author of TOTAL MELTDOWN (Borgo/Wildside)

QUANTUM DEATH by A. G. Hayes with Raymond Gaynor- Excerpt #2 (This Excerpt is Restricted due to graphic content):

[12541533-quantum-death-by-hayes-with-raymond-gaynor] 

"Mr. Hempsted. It's Agent Falk," he said working his way through the door and cautiously around to the front of the chair. "I visited you earlier, and was wondering if we might…" 

Aaron Hempsted was sitting, head erect, rheumy bloodshot eyes fixed open, staring at Falk, his mouth limply agape, his unshaven face even whiter than before. A bloodless hand gripped each of the threadbare chair arms, making it appear as if he were pushing himself back into the seat. A small rivulet of dark, coagulated blood had worked its way alongside his nose and down one cheek from a small, round entry hole in the middle of his forehead. The man's shocked expression was accentuated by a halo of dark red blood splattered behind the man's resting head onto a white embroidered doily draped over the back of the easy chair. 

Falk squatted, raising his weapon and holding it with both hands as he swept the room…

-----

Multi-award winning author A. G. Hayes studied television writing at UCLA and has published short fiction, "Cover up" - "Not a Penny Pincher” - "Home" - "Payment in Full" - "Small Wonder" - Fate Magazine-"Guided Through a Mine Field" and other scripts to CBS TV and other television productions. He lives in Northern California, and spends his time writing and traveling to nearly every part of the world. He has used personal experiences gained during service with the British intelligence in Eastern Europe and the Middle East to enrich the characters of his protagonist teams. "Quantum Death is a deeply human story beyond up-to-date that pushes the edge of the envelope," says Hayes. "Despite being parted, their relationship never stops developing and the story never loses the quintessential Koski and Falk." 

Raymond Gaynor is the pen-name of a multi-award-winning, reclusive writer-artist-photographer-videographer, who, in his own words, "lives and breathes" San Francisco. He is co-author with William Maltese on the Tripler and Clarke gay political thriller, TOTAL MELTDOWN (Borgo/Wildside 2011) and is the author of numerous fiction and non-fiction works published under a number of pseudonyms. "When co-authoring a work, it's always first in my mind to preserve the first author's style and voice, which I believe readers will find well accomplished," says Gaynor. "A close second is to add significantly to the work, which was incredibly easy and fun when working with A. G. Hayes. I think this is reflected in the adventure's compelling yet clean, easy read. Love Koski and Falk. Who couldn't?"
