Powerful LGBTQ-related monuments

For centuries, LGBTQ people were forced to lead invisible lives. You couldn’t find them in the pages of history books. No one erected monuments in their honor. Throughout history, defiant social reformers made visibility one of their chief concerns in the fight for LGBTQ rights. In 1978, Harvey Milk shouted, “Gay brothers and sisters, you must come out!” During the AIDS epidemic, the LGBTQ community stopped traffic in city streets while holding signs that read “Silence = Death.” Today, trans ...

How to layer for spring hiking

Chilly mornings , warm afternoons, and a cooling breeze. The arrival of spring beckons us outdoors. The only problem is that the tempting blast of heat and sunshine is likely just a temporary front, withholding cold precipitation or frigid gusts. This is particularly true at altitude, where spring is synonymous with sun, rain, wind, and snow, often all in the same day. Fail to dress appropriately, and you may head out for the season’s first solid hike, only to find yourself soggy and miserable...

On Something

I’ve been itching of late to start a new writing project on this ol’ site of mine. In recent years there was when I started blogging about Japan again, for a few months — I stopped because it was starting to bum me out to be writing about all these things that I couldn’t experience myself anymore. I think the last one was the shortlived “Game Boy” column I wrote in 2018. I’ve always enjoyed launching projects throughout the years. I’d often kick off the year with a post on January 1 listing a...

The slow-living movement reminds us to be mindful of what’s around us. It’s about cultivating simple pleasures and using our resources wisely, skills that are suddenly very useful during a pandemic.

While it’s best known for the glitzy beach resort of Búzios, the less-traveled town of Cabo Frio is less than an hour south of Búzios and offers a lot to those fortunate enough to visit.
