Tarotscopes That Slay: New moon in Aries

I am writing this to you from my at-home sanctuary that my husband and I lovingly call the “spirit room”. It’s just the second bedroom in our tiny two-bedroom Los Angeles bungalow but it’s also a vortex for healing and love. I am gazing out the window at the bougainvillea in full bloom, creeping along the dark green fence that separates me from my neighbor. If I lean a little to the left I can see the giant cactus that I planted from a trimming my friend Michelle gave me years ago. The sky is a...

Stop smoking to reduce health risks & possibly your taxes

How are you feeling? That's the question everyone is asking themselves, family and friends as we adapt to the changes forced upon us by the coronavirus pandemic. Social distancing — limiting your interactions with others, either at work or in recreational (remember those?) settings — is the new norm. For the introverted hubby and me, it's simply our norm. We both work from home and don't go out much. We used to joke that our self-imposed isolation works against us when we do venture into the wi...

Atelier des Lumieres: Monet, Renoir…Chagall

Last Thursday was the press day for the newest Atelier des Lumieres spectacle, Monet, Renoir…Chagall.   The two previous shows, Klimt in 2018, and Van Gogh in 2019, were smash hits, selling out on many dates.   Notice the … after Renoir, and before Chagall. The reason is because, a range of important artists who painted in between the time of Monet, Renoir and Chagall are shown during the spectacle including Matisse, Andre Derain, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, and Raoul Dufy.   ...

Hidden Away review - makes a rich, heavy meal of a biopic of feral Italian painter

This account of the tough, troubled life of naive artist Antonio Liguabue boasts a committed performance from actor Elio GermanoGeorgio Diritti has directed a lovely-looking and fervent film about the life of the 20th-century naive artist Antonio Ligabue, who suffered poverty and mental illness throughout his life but whose fierce, primitive, impassioned studies and sculptures of animals and human portraits made him celebrated in his own day as an authentic unschooled genius, and an object of cu...

Is it too late even to try to understand Joe Biden's calling a woman a "lying dog-faced pony soldier," or is this nothing but an absurd epitaph on a dead political campaign?

ADDED: Here's my reaction, and I have not looked at much of the commentary. I think Biden believes he's lovable, and he can kid in a silly way and people will know it's all in good fun. I don't know why he thinks he can swing around so freely when he's trying to gain the deep trust needed to be President, but I don't know why anyone pushing 80 thinks he can be President or why a grown man in politics thinks he can nuzzle and sniff at the hair of young girls other than to think he thinks he's Joe...

Watch Kirk Douglas on the Dick Cavett show in 1992

The recently departed Kirk Douglas was 75 when he appeared on The Dick Cavett show to promote his autobiography. Douglas told Cavett that his friend John Wayne thought he was a "sissy" for playing Van Gogh in Lust for Life. "Kirk, how can you play this sniveling weakling who commits suicide," Wayne told Douglas after they watched a screening of the movie together. Douglas also told Cavett that Brando ruined many actors who tried to imitate Brando, who was, of course, inimitable. All in all, D...

River cruise in Provence, France

If you’ve long been curious to explore France’s storied southeastern region — from the lavender-filled fields of Provence to the hilly wine country near Lyon — consider doing so by boat. A Rhône river cruise gives you time to shop at bustling farmers markets, marvel at medieval palaces, and meander through vineyards while getting you to your next location by night.

Remembering Kirk Douglas, One of the Last Surviving Links to Old Hollywood

You could draw a caricature of his face with little more than a hearty stroke for the jawline and a few exclamatory dots: two for the piercing eyes and one for that magnificent, trademark dimple. Kirk Douglas, who died on Feb. 5 at age 103, defined the ideal manly-man persona of the 1950s, often giving electrically appealing performances while playing less-than-exemplary characters. Douglas’s most famous role may be that of the slave who became a rebel leader in ancient Rome, in Stanley Kub...

Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum Is Hugely Popular. Here Are The Challenges As A New Director Takes Over
