Trading Divorce for Travel

Reflecting on it now, it seems appropriate that my husband and I took a weekend trip to sign our divorce papers.  At the time, I was living in New York City and he in San Diego.  In an attempt to be amicable, we decided to meet in Palm Springs for the “official” signing.  It was a typical Palm Springs weekend that we’d experienced dozens of times before: the air hot and dry, with oily and glistening leathery women sprawled out on chaise lounges around the pool.  The difference this time was that...

Colin O’Brady would’ve had a much better time if he’d ended each day eating popcorn in a hot tub. Not to say the man who recently completed the first unassisted trek of Antarctica didn’t enjoy himself.

Such is the life if you opt to see Antarctica aboard the most luxurious ship to ever hit the White Continent. The Silversea Silver Cloud erases all Shack...

IDFA 2018: Chilean Film 'Los Reyes' is a One-of-a-Kind Doggie Doc

As a die-hard dog lover, I'm always on the lookout for any new films about dogs. Los Reyes is one of the best dog films I've ever seen, and that's not even hyperbole.

Their names are Chola and Fútbol (or Football), and they've been living there since, well, forever. The film focuses entirely on these two dogs, and it's ama...
