The Invitation to Dream

    Within each of us, there is a dream wanting to wake up and become real, tangible, whole, and complete.   Within each of us, there is a past, present, and future in collaboration with the scribe of our script.     Wi thin each of us, there is a history buried, wanting to be born anew.   Within each of us, we have cells that connect us to the sun, to the bottom of the sea, and through the black hole.   Within each of us, we carry the invitation to dream.                     ...

This adorable California winery’s vintage trailer park is the ultimate girl getaway

After two years of living in San Francisco, I became cynical about the California wine country experience. It was gorgeous, but always crowded. The wine was delicious, but always expensive. The food was fantastic, but I always ended up waiting an hour in the heat for a table. It took a trip down south to the Central Coast to understand that Napa and Sonoma represent just a small slice of the state’s viticultural experiences. The small city of Paso Robles offers an entirely different vibe, fre...

A sex worker explains why moving Amsterdam’s Red Light District is bad for everyone

“ They say sex work is not normal, ” Mary told me on Matador Network’s No Blackout Dates podcast, sounding both perplexed and disheartened. “But who decides what is normal?” This tug-of-war between what’s normal and what isn’t characterizes some of the most important debates of our time. The “normal” is tolerated and encouraged, while the “abnormal” is outlawed and its practitioners shamed. In Amsterdam, famous for its positivity and liberalism, prostitution is slipping into the “abnormal.” ...

How to take your family on an African safari

Three hours in line, waiting with two teenagers in the pre-dawn chill for the National Park rangers to open the gate? Never again, I told myself, heading back to the lake and our cabin. But it got me thinking. Maybe it was time to plan that African safari we’d been telling the kids about for so long. Aged 11 and 12, they were finally old enough to enjoy it. And an hour on the phone with my favorite travel agent, a person I’d worked with before, proved to be the solution. By the time I...
