Good Reads: Staff Picks for All Moods and Interests

What’s your favorite book? It seems like an innocuous question. In essence, it’s no different than inquiring about a favorite movie or ice cream flavor. It’s interesting, then, that when I ask the average American adult in 2017 to name theirs, I’m often met with an expression that I can only describe as a deer in after-market high beams. It’s as if I’ve instead asked how m... »

The Power of Being Present

The Power of Being Present

I am driving home from work, going the same way that I’ve always gone. My hands instinctively know by now to tilt the wheel a little bit to the right as I rumble over the first set of railroad tracks, to the left when I hit the second. I know which yellow lights are forgiving, where the potholes are, the construction schedule. Memory chauffeurs me home while I alternate be... »

Vera Pinho

Vera Pinho’s laugh precedes her. It’s loud and contagious and frequent, punctuating her sentences and disarming, instantly putting you at ease and cheering you up all in one audible second. There’s a joke here about having whatever she’s having, but it’s just her way, radiant and carefree with an undertone of wisdom that suggests she chooses happiness and it chooses her ri... »

Floating Stress Away

Floating Stress Away

Sometimes I feel less like a human and more like anxiety personified, as if my existence is merely a three-dimensional expression of stress and neurosis. If there’s something to worry about, I’m on it. When I call someone and they don’t pick up, for example, I naturally assume it’s because they have died. So when I found out there was a place called Metta Relaxation Co. in... »

Domenick Naccarato

Artistic inspiration isn’t always found in a picturesque sunset, trip to Paris, or pretty model who moonlights as a muse. In fact, artist Domenick Naccarato’s creative epiphany was literally a joke. It went something like this: Naccarato was waiting for sculpture class to start and a fellow art school student walked in and dropped a 12-inch slab of wood covered in decades ... »

10 Fall Superfoods

10 Fall Superfoods

Fall is a time for scenic amber foliage, finally busting out those adorable sweaters you bought on clearance last spring, and the onset of the annual panic attack about your looming holiday shopping list. It’s also a time for saccharine logic to convince you that if you eat all the leftover Halloween candy in one sitting, you’re saving yourself from eating fun-sized sweets... »

Tru-Comfort

Being fortunate enough to live in the United States in 2016, many of us take certain amenities for granted, such as creating false climates with the push of a button: flipping on the air conditioning in the summer and escaping from winter’s bitter embrace into the warmth of our heated homes. And then there’s the eighth wonder of the world, indoor plumbing, granting us the ... »

Ballet Guild of the Lehigh Valley

Ballet Guild of the Lehigh Valley

Fact: everyone secretly wants to be a dancer, even if they don’t know it. Imagine a life of not needing proximal seating to the open bar at a wedding reception to fuel your creativity on the dance floor. A world where your children don’t default to “Look, I’m Dad!” dancing pantomimes for guaranteed laughter during family get-togethers. An existence where people don’t wonde... »
