Learning-based terrain taught me how to ski

True confession – I can’t ski. Well, I am a beginner. I am 41. I live in Colorado, and I have since 2005. I have put little effort into mastering the sport, but I make an annual pilgrimage to the mountain. I fail brutely. I do yoga and ride my bicycle (not that fast or competitive). I have never played sports. Most of my life, I studied music and writing. […]

Christmas Nostalgia

Some people get in the holiday spirit by decorating a tree, polishing the menorah or baking something from an old family recipe…I pull out the movies. For me, nothing says Christmas like the stop-motion animated cartoons from the early ’70s. The Little Drummer Boy (1968), The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974) and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) come to mind. Even though I couldn’t remember the title of one of my favorite cartoons from childhood, […]
