Or maybe I should say holidays. This year, during my brief desert vacation, Passover, Easter, Coachella, Earth Day and 420 Day are all being celebrated. It certainly makes for a culturally rich experience, something people don’t often say about time spent in SoCal. It’s been more than 35 years since I first visited Palm Springs … Continue reading Desert Holiday
Despite there having been a fairly mild winter, spring seemed slow to arrive this year. My crocus bloomed late, the down comforter is still on my bed and I just finally flipped the thermostat switch to off. I think, though, that after the gorgeous weekend we just experienced in Albany, it’s safe to say that … Continue reading From rosés to lupine

Perched on the border of N.Y. and MA, the highest waterfall in the Commonwealth is an ideal … Continue reading Bash. Me.
Despite being fully vaccinated, I’m still reluctant to go back to my favorite yoga studio. I like my yoga HOT and can’t imagine enjoying a challenging 75 minute class while wearing a mask. It simply doesn’t appeal to me and I’ve been reasonably satisfied practicing at home. The Hot Yoga Spot offers what I think … Continue reading (San Jacinto)Mountain Pose
