It's not about about meditation directly, but it does make you think about..stuff. Check it out.

This reminds me of a great little book called "Stuff: The Secret Lives of Everyday Things" by John C. Ryan and Alan Thein Durning.

The book only covers about 7 or 8 things but they are everyday items like coffee, newspaper, shoes, computers, colas, etc.  Very interesting reading and makes you more aware...or dare I say it...more mindful of where these products come from.

Thanks for the link! I've bookmarked it to share with others!
