Feeling Completely and Utterly Alone Because You Have a Mental Illness? This Can Help

You have a mental illness, and you feel incredibly alone. Intellectually, you know that you are one of millions of people who also have a mental illness—people who also have depression or an anxiety disorder or bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. You know that you’re not the only person on this planet to be in pain. But it doesn’t matter. Because it looks like everyone around you is just fine. You’re the only one who has a hard time getting out of bed, who feels overwhelmed by everything, no matt...

Glitter on dog testicles—not really a trend - just a one time joke

P hotos supposedly of a weirdly disturbing new trend are cropping up on social media. People putting glitter on their dog’s testicles. The perpetrators stress that it is edible glitter applied using corn syrup so it is completely safe.   Hundreds of people have taken it seriously believing this is a new trend and weighed in to debate whether they think it is cruel or funny.  "I feel sorry for the dog. People will do anything to a animal and think it is funny. So bad." "Shame on the person who...

Mere Calvinism

S omewhere along the way, it seems like the New Calvinism became about everything but Calvinism. Somewhere along the way, we stopped thinking and writing about the very doctrines that brought the movement together in the first place. Maybe we had already mastered them, so it was time to move on to more advanced topics. Or maybe we just began to assume them and then to subsume them to other matters. Either way, I’m delighted to see a new crop of books on the subject, with Jim O...

Go Barrel to Bar With this Kentucky Bourbon Experience

If you are the type of person who would travel to Louisville just to experience the Kentucky bourbon industry there, then you’ve probably already done your fair share of distillery tours. I was that person. I had been through the ‘this is how you distill liquor’ tour a million times, and was looking for something more than simply tastings. I wanted to really dig in and learn about the complete Kentucky bourbon process. Bourbon Boom If you haven’t heard, bourbon is experiencing a boom and so ar...

Eastern Red Cedars and Christmas Past

Our grown children were scattered hither and yon this Christmas, so Rose and I downsized Yuletide with a raggedy Eastern red cedar, instead of a sculpted Fraser fir. Meanwhile, I stayed merry and bright in a larger sense. I made the rounds in a Santa suit leavened with a puffy pillow. We dug a cedar (Juniperus virginiana)from our Salvisa farm. It had unmistakable charm—even if I was the only one who thought so. There were obvious advantages to our little tree. It was a blessing to be...

The Other John Muir Trail

In September 1867, two years after the end of the Civil War, a wild-eyed 29-year-old man left Louisville, Kentucky on foot with little money, food, or plans. Only a few months earlier he had suffered a serious eye injury in a work accident. He was heading south on a botanical journey with an ultimate destination of South America, then maybe Europe. He did not know it then, but he would become one of the most famous conservationists in American history. His name was John Muir. Muir is known mos...

Most affordable American cities

Hasbro made headlines recently when it taglined its new Monopoly for Millennials game, “Forget real estate, you can’t afford it anyway,” which, while humorous, is only accurate in a dozen or so cities. If you’re not looking to move to San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, New York City, or other A-list locales, housing is still pretty affordable. Of course, sometimes said affordable housing is in places you can’t really envision moving. Lovely as cities like Dayton, Ohio, and Lansing, Michigan, m...

As a staff writer for the New Yorker and author of books including “The Orchid Thief” and “Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend,” she typically bought the books she needed for work or wanted for pleasure. But seven years ago, Orlean and her family moved to Los A...

Your Whole Story Matters

I looked out at the hundreds of moms and asked, “Who grew up believing that colorblindness was the answer to racism or that you were a racist if you talk about race or racism?” Just about every mom in the room, with eyes widened, leaned in to testify, and arms o f various skin tones sprung up waving hands like flags in solidarity. The MOMcon workshop session was slated for an hour, so we didn’t have time and space to hear each mom’s specific story. Although most were strangers, their unifie...
