George Saunders says writing new book was ‘like a spa day for my mind’

George Saunders remembers walking out of his classroom one day and realizing that all the work, all the “beautiful moments” he’d shared with his students over the past 20 years, might just disappear. Saunders’ latest book, the nonfiction guide to life and writing, “A Swim in a Pond in the Rain,” published on Jan. 12, represents his two decades of classroom experience as a creative writing professor at Syracuse University. “I think that was both the motivation to write the book and one of the ben...

11 Sex- und Beziehungspodcasts, die du lieben wirst

Ich muss zugeben, ich bin schon ein klitzekleines bisschen voyeuristisch veranlagt. Rom-Coms à la Harry und Sally sind meine Droge der Wahl. Ich könnte stundenlang Hochzeitsvideos auf YouTube anschauen. Sag ja! hab ich in einer Nacht weggebingt. Wenn ich IRL ein Paar sehe, dass mitten im Park wie wild herumknutscht, reagiere ich nicht wie die meisten Leute mit einem Augenrollen, sondern mit einem Awww!. Dass ich ein absoluter Fan von Sex- und Beziehungspodcasts bin, dürfte dich also nicht ...

5 Hiker-Friendly Movies for Outdoor Lovers

I tried upping my street cred (okay, hiking cred) recently while having pints with a group of fellow hikers. Emboldened by a pint (or two) of IPA, I claimed out aloud: “You know, you could say that I’ve hiked with Robert Redford and Martin Sheen.” The deafening silence was quickly followed by an outburst of derisive laughter that basically suggested: “Dream on, dude!” While I haven’t actually hiked with either of these stars—I have shared the same hiking trails, albeit at different times. Robert...

"at your library" in the north island eagle: let your reading take you someplace new – part 2

Is your reading stuck in a rut? Do you read the same authors all the time? Do you ever search for something new (to you) and different to read? I’m suggesting a little reading challenge for readers of this column: this year, read three books that take you out of your comfort zone. In my last column, I was singing the praises of graphic novels – books for adults that look like comic books. Graphic novels bring a whole other dimension to reading by using images to convey plot and emotions.Another ...

Motherless Daughters of Strained Relationships Grieve Differently 

“I didn’t get to grow up and pull away from her and bitch about her with my friends and confront her about the things I’d wished she’d done differently and then get older and understand that she had done the best she could and realize that what she had done was pretty damn good and take her fully back into my arms again. Her death had obliterated that. It had obliterated me. It had cut me short at the very height of my youthful arrogance. It had forced me to instantly grow up and forgive her ev...

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s will mark the decade when cinema as we know it started changing drastically. The movies themselves aren’t really changing, but the manner in which we get to see them is in the middle of a drastic overhaul. In some ways, it’s easier than ever to watch a movie. But along with that, it’s also gotten harder for movies to find their audience, let alone get made. Even so, the 2010s were full of movies that will stick with us for years...

7 recommended books about nature, the environment and unexpected encounters with nudists

Wildfires. Rising sea levels. Melting permafrost. Maybe it’s the serious challenges we face that are fueling the recent surge of compelling nonfiction about nature, animals and the environment. Some of the best books published this year were on environmental topics, such as Robert MacFarlane’s brilliant “Underland,” and they offered reminders that — despite our mental relocation into cyberspace and social media — there is still a real world, and we still live in it. Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild” and H...

5 Ways You Can Expect to be Changed by Solo Female Travel

Traveling alone was never my intention. In fact, up until a few years ago, I would have considered myself quite the opposite of a “strong independent woman.” But after making concrete plans to travel with a partner two separate times only to have them back out at the last minute, I realized that I wanted to travel the world, I needed to see what was out there, and no one was going to stop me. I discovered that I’m much stronger, braver, and more adventurous than I had ever given myself credit fo...

‘Tiny Beautiful Things’ review: Cheryl Strayed’s advice columns come to compassionate life at Seattle Rep

The 1 Nail Art Trend You Have to Try This Summer Is SO Easy to Do

Not all nail art can evoke that warm, breezy feeling you'd get from sailing along the Amalfi Coast, Aperol Spritz in hand - otherwise, employers would probably throw salon appointments into its benefits packages instead of PTO. Then again, you've yet to meet the easiest nail art trend of the Summer: the geometric sun design. "This design is a new take on geometric nails, which traditionally have straighter lines," said Hannah Roxit, celebrity manicurist and Sally Hansen ambassador. "It is eye-ca...

How To Manage Your Period On Vacation: The Complete Guide

If you’ve ever read a teen magazine, you’ve probably read a hilarious story about an unexpected period. From leaking through your white dress in front of your crush to making your date’s bedroom look like a murder scene after period sex, periods can seriously mess up your plans (though they usually make for a good story later on). Menstruation is normal and nothing to be ashamed about — pretty much everyone who gets periods has had to tie a sweater around their waist to hide a bloodstain at lea...

‘Tiny Beautiful Things’ at the Pasadena Playhouse is a beautiful thing

The idea of turning a modern-day advice column into a play may seem an odd one, but this column was not the standard. Cheryl Strayed’s stint as the online “Dear Sugar” blended empathy and hard-learned wisdom with a non-authoritarian approach which led to a significant following. When she turned some of the more powerful of the interactions with those who reached out to her for help, the resulting book proved equally powerful. Now the play adapted from the book of the same title, “Tiny Beautiful ...
