Gluten-free Lemon Bars

A friend passed me along these wonderful meditation tapes, that help meld the right and the left brain into stillness in the center. I thought I uploaded them correctly, and went to meditate while listening. And then, after every piece, there was a great stillness, and then…from Itunes came a Beatles song, alternating with each meditation piece. So I would be wonderfully meditating, then all of a sudden singing, “You say you want a revoooluttion, wellll, ya knoww….” Until I went, huh? Que divertido! (how funny!)
