Trade something with someone. Anything, with anyone.
If you could be made immortal, would you do it?
“My Friday night UNDOing: I put my phone and computer away—and spend the first 20 minutes thinking about who might be trying to reach me. What a relief when a few hours later I realize that I have let go of that feeling and instead have found focus on the dinner I am preparing and the sound of Ira Glass’ voice on the radio telling me the stories of This American Life.” (Lisa Delgin)
It. Is. Summer. Time. We feel we must venture to the top of the Santa Monica Mountains near the coast – and we’re tired so we’re riding horses this time. It is one of the great treasures of living in the City of Angels that we can escape to other worlds with just a short drive. Where Topanga Canyon meets Malibu and yields the finest views around, Los Angeles Horseback Riding
has daytime rides, sunset rides, even moonlight rides (call in advance). Giddyup. Sorry, had to say it.
You’ll smell the nag champa whether you cross the Bay or not. Might as well dive in. The annual Berkeley World Music Festival
is this Saturday, it is free and it is more than just an eye and ear-opening collection of World Music purveyors in and around People’s Park. There are artists, artisans, crafts-makers, dancers and a cross-section of the Bay Area’s population in attendance that make it well worth the trip. Bring a blanket and sit in the sun.
The 6-minute trailer for this year’s World Science Festival provides enough hair-raising anticipation to drive geeks and layman alike to attend. Founded by some of the nation’s elite scientists, and now with increasing celebrity endorsement, this festival brings exhibitions of science literally into the streets of New York City. Bring kids, or not. Attend the panels, or just wander the streets. The intersection of art and science here won’t go unnoticed or unappreciated, and we won’t miss it. Watch the trailer here, and try not to go.
