AT Connections

I am in awe of the quantity and quality of things which may be found on the internet.  I've decided to dedicate this page to things which may or may not be about the Alexander Technique, but which I find to be strongly connected to AT in one way or another, if not.  One thing they all have in common is that they fascinate me!  Feel free to share your interesting findings here, too.  Show and tell! :)
