Week 18: Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon and Monument Valley

I’ve been so fortunate to see places around the world of exquisite beauty. It’s hard to say what is your favorite place and why. I can’t say whether mountains, deserts, or beaches fill up my soul more than the other as each has its place and separate purpose. I love them all. But there are some places that stand above the others. They have this special magnetic pull that pulls you into their beauty. They enchant you. They heal you. They call you to look in so you can create something better when...

Fanny Burney in her own words

Born in 1752,  Frances Burney  (better known as Fanny Burney) was well known as a satirical novelist in her time, anonymously publishing her first book,  Evelina , in 1778. Despite her literary influence, Fanny Burney is a name unknown to many aside from the most ardent scholars. Did you know, for instance, that the title of Jane Austen’s  Pride and Prejudice   comes from the pages of Burney’s  Cecilia ? In the eighteenth century, female authors were uncommon due (in part) to social expectati...

Comment on banana puddings with vanilla bean wafers by Cecilia

I made this as a sheet dessert so that I could just cut it up and serve. I would suggest serving the day you make it, as the bananas get brown and mushy. Super tasty!

Cecilia reveals Divine Festival plans

Cecilia Bartoli has had a busy week. Opening her 2014 Salzburg Whitsun Festival, singing in it, celebrating her birthday and, finally, revealing her plans for the 2015 festival.

Saint Dominic’s Mission: To Pray, To Preach, To Bless

“To Praise”: Saint Dominic and the Contemplative Style We will focus soon enough on Saint Dominic as the foundational and ultimate Dominican doer, but this great saint was a first-rate thinker as well. His heart burned with zeal to preach the good news, and he knew that to do so most effectively he needed to know that message by heart. Indeed, Brother John of Spain, the fifth sworn witness in his canonization process, would testify  on August 10, 1233: “He always carried around with him the Go...

Crying when a patient suffers a devastating loss

I was a second-year resident, doing a 24-hour shift on maternity care. I’d spent some arduous nights on call with my attending physician, Dr. Campbell. Now, we sat at the nursing station, joking about what this one might bring. “You must be a black cloud,” she teased, accusing me of being one of those unfortunate residents who seem to attract medical emergencies. I laughingly protested, but in fact, these quiet nights worried me. I felt on edge, waiting for something, anything to happen. Finally...

Dressing Up Wooden Objects with Pyrography

Pyrography is the art of "drawing" on wood using a stylus with an electrically-heated tip. For those that have mastered drawing in ink and are seeking another way to make indelible marks, pyrography is a good way to add visual interest to plain surfaces. It's something like creating tattoos on wood rather than flesh.

Whicker: Cecilia Braekhus hopes to rock StubHub Center

CARSON – So far, the biggest difference between women’s boxing and men’s boxing is also the difference between “suspended” and “canceled.” A main event gets suspended and it usually gets rescheduled. Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez were supposed to write Chapter 2 on Saturday. Canelo was suspended for a positive drug test, so now the promoters aim for Sept. 15. Lucia Rijker was supposed to fight Christy Martin in 2005. Rijker ended her career 16-0 as a boxer and 35-0-1 as a kickboxer. She pr...
