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

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

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

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... »

Dr. David Hay

Dr. David Hay

We know how a lot of things go: the child who insists she doesn’t need a sweatshirt ends up invariably shivering and whimpering three hours later; you will hit every red light on Route 512 unless you need to reach for something in the back seat and then it’s as green as Saint Patrick’s Day; and most hospitals and doctor’s offices come standard with a long wait time, three ... »

South Mountain

South Mountain

A slice of the lush Pennsylvania Highlands is nestled here in the Lehigh Valley, colloquially known to us as South Mountain. The Pennsylvania Highlands region is considered a significant national landscape by the U.S. Forest Service, as these dense forests not only support a diverse dwelling of plants and wildlife within its shady sprawl, but also protect and supply clean ... »

Matt Halm

Matt Halm

Some artists use photography as their canvas, some prefer clay or metal, some have a flair for fashion, and others, well, they keep it literal and use a canvas as their canvas. Then there’s Matt Halm – he uses entire neighborhoods. “You remember being there and looking at a wall on a building with nothing there and you get to see how you created something that really trans... »
