"Art is a lot like love. We know it when we see it. Or rather, we know it when we feel it."

http://www.monicamccarthy.net/2014/02/18/at-the-ballet/
A few weeks ago I attended a show at the New York City Ballet as part of a special series in collaboration with JR, the 2011 TED Prize winning artist and creator of the global INSIDE OUT project. Instead of one storyline performed in one style by one composer and one choreographer, ...

If you watch one thing today, let it be this short animated film about finding love. 

http://www.wimp.com/romanticshort/
In this animated short entitled "Paperman", Walt Disney Animation Studios personifies finding love. This is a beautiful tribute to the best thing that can happen to anyone and everyone all around the world.

"Time now transformed into something to be savored, not conquered."
The silhouette of the tree dances against a bare wall, the room bathed in the glorious golden morning light France is so famous for. I rub my eyes, adjusting to my new surroundings, a cozy home in Auty, a tiny town in the Midi-Pyrénées region. The dull ache in my bones reaffirms the 22-hour ...

"I couldn’t see myself on the screen but I could feel the weight of my finisher medal around my neck.

In that moment I realized we don’t have to pretend to be what we want to become."
My legs are shaking. I feel the pulsing vibrations of sneakers hitting the pavement and hear the cheers of fans on the sidelines. The beauty of Central Park is all around me as I breath in and… Cut! Back to

"If we’re forced to only focus on the immediate dramas and ignore the bigger picture we get worn down before we can claim victory."
{Warning: This post contains an obtuse number of metaphors. I blame Monday.} Life is like a carnival. (Stay with me on this one.) Ok, so life is like a carnival filled with a plethora of interesting characters and activities all vying for our attention. Of course, we each have our favorite rides ...

We are in an age (or perhaps this just refers to people of my age) where we are bombarded with messages to “DO EPIC SHIT” (yes, typically in all caps), pressured to create and knock off bucket lists as if they were mile markers on the path to a good life, while donning social media as our badges of verisimilitude.

But is this what is means to “start living”?
I'm noticing the older I get, the more solitude I crave. I don't use the time alone to unwind and relax (how boring!) but to sort through the whirling dervishes in my brain desperately needing space to spread out. More often than not, I revert to my favorite only-child-childhood-past-time: ...

"The best city is like the best individual, never perfect, but the best it can be under the circumstances."
As I wrote about in a previous post, I've decided to dive into the abyss that is attempting to understand the vast and complicated world of politics. To be clear, I'm obviously not striving to attain expert status and I have no intention of turning this blog post into a history lesson.

I’m sure Paris is nice for lovers, but she’s also just as endearing when experienced with a friend you love."
“A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life.” ― Thomas Jefferson. After spending a glorious week in southern France untangling the year that was, it was time to take the train up to a city that needs no introduction: Paris.
