The Atlantic Monthly‘s literary issue highlights a silent spiritual retreat; the Pope’s Buddhist moment for abuse survivors; How social networking is helping cancer patients

Call it a somatic awakening. Call it  spiritually-inspired, tattoo-like messages on a maximo nude body. Hell, call it what it is: gratuitous Ricky Martin video to the left to get your attention.

  1. Thanks so much for posting the Ricky Martin video! I am always so proud and inspired when people realize the freedom of being themselves. The video, his courage, and inspirational "tattoos" brought tears to my eyes!

  2. I agree Kim. I don't find the video "gratuitous" at all. Ricky has finally come out of the closet and is free to be "Ricky", in all his considerable glory. The inspirational words on the tatoos are the icing on his cake.
