Glamping New Brunswick at Broadleaf Ranch

I love camping. I really do, especially for the landscapes it allows me to explore that would otherwise be too far from a trailhead to visit. But I also enjoy the full glamping experience where I have a secure to semi-secure roof over my head and I don’t have to worry about being woken up by a bear sniffing around my tent. I also enjoy the simple things like being able to stand up (my tent allows kneeling only), and the use of a toilet instead of an outhouse. It’s a bonus when there’s a hot show...

The Bon Marché department store is full of posh things for sale and very well dressed shoppers. Aren’t these cute? A little too stylish for me but I do admire them. The exterior of the section of Bon Marché called the Grande Epicerie, full of food items. They always have gorgeous art hanging from the ceiling in the main store. A closer look. The flowers were hand made by 200 women in South Africa. They were paid by the way.

's rookie hazing was a dumb ritual that needed to go away

Here’s what bothered me most about baseball’s rookie-hazing tradition: It was another example of athletes operating as though they live outside the basic norms of society.And baseball, for whatever reason, is the one sport where this stuff is most visible and most defended. For all its bluster about being a gentleman’s game that must be respected (or else!), baseball sure has had an affinity for punishment and humiliation in the name of “team...

Running Water

      Down by the river, beyond the gate,  a dirt path winds this way and that, between the chestnut trees, the sunlight filters through the leaves, creating lace-like shadows on the ground. The water rushes by and it seems the birds sing in harmony with it. Nothing is asked. Though much is said. Words spoken without a human voice.       The water gathered, Serenading blue, reflecting the sky, Reflecting. I listened. Deeply, without moving, The leaves rustled as the breeze went by,  Diamonds s...
