Like a Piss in the Sea

  We all have good days and bad days.  What I try to remind my children (and myself) is that it is okay to feel it. Feel your tears, feel your anger, feel your frustration, and feel your joy. While you’re feeling all the feels though, your next responsibility is to deliberately act upon them…

Dinner Dinner: One Meal, Two Restaurants, Many Dishes

The Leather District is a unique little corner of Boston nestled between Chinatown and the theatre district. It has a historic Boston industrial feeling and actually reminds me a little of NYC with unexpected restaurants, apartments, office buildings, and small independent artists and artisans. When you walk into Bel Ari, you are wrapped up by…

Owls, Senses & The Arts

Owls have become trendy over the years.  They’re cute. They’re smart. They’re  powerful and their heads turn almost all the way around.  I’ve liked owls well enough but recently I have become a bit obsessed with them for on r simple reason: presence.   Last week I saw an owl close up, in real life, not…

Sex, Drugs & Rock & Roll: Boston Ballet is at it again

Dapper men in droves, mean girls, fantasy suites, making out, hooking up, and Champagne flowing more freely than opinions on a certain striped dress, and no I’m not talking about The Bachelorette. The sex is implied (so don’t worry about bringing the kids.) The drugs are free-flowing Champagne or perhaps the intoxication is just the…

Weekend Guide: July 18th 2014

You know how at your parent’s place or the beach house you have that old favorite towel.  When you open the linen closet at home, you hope to see that one you really like because it’s big, or it’s soft or the fabric is not too thick. Head over to Rings Fountain at the Rose…

Learning Beyond School: Classes, Enrichment and After School

I miss the days of playing in our street until dusk. Until, one by one, groups of siblings were called in for bath, dinner, bed. As a parent, I miss the afternoon gatherings of parents and babies, toddlers, tykes at the playground to prolong the inevitable arrival of ‘the witching hour’. Once school and after…
