  • BLOG – Kafka – evolving perceptions, and my personal history

    kafka-young

    “I had no conception of his renown or the reverence he was accorded – I simply found that his ideas and his utterly inimitable style of writing meshed well with whatever was echoing in my own imagination…anyone that knew Kafka remembered that he was immensely kind and charming, and that he spoke in a ‘mellifluous baritone.'”

  • BLOG— New home blues

    Life feels fragile when it’s bundled into boxes, especially when it’s bundled into boxes marked “FRAGILE,” a poignant convergence of packing parlance and metaphor.

  • BLOG-Ease On Down The Road

    Now that a new sidewalk has been installed, we will be singing our newfound anthem from The Wiz along Xenia Avenue.

  • BLOG— Birding is easy!

    Wings like water. Travis Tarbox Hotaling, "Great Blue Heron," 2015. One of seven bird portraits now on display at the Yellow Springs Brewery.

    For me, though, the heron was the total heart-throb, the show-stopper, the bird of birds. His rosy neck and blue-grey shoulders rippled like water; he was water flying over water, an awesome feat of paint and metaphysics.

  • BLOG-Stone Soup

    In making Stone Soup for the annual Antioch School supper, my daughter was keen to bring the carrots…the first ingredient after the stone and salt.

  • “My love of movement” – an exercise in conversation with a personal trainer

    “I definitely experience the world kinesthetically. Some people are visual learns, some auditory; it’s very important for me to feel things on a physical level. It makes sense that I would gravitate to this type of work.”

  • BLOG— Falling up

    You can hang it any which way, but she preferred it this direction. Georgia O'Keeffe, "The Lawrence Tree," 1929. Collection of Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art.

    I love this painting by Georgia O’Keeffe, and last night — I saw it. Out in the world, I mean. Something better than it, even.

  • BLOG-Food for Thought

    seasoningsMatter

    The students of Yellow Springs High School take on a meaty subject: the American food system.

  • BLOG — Superheroes of Yellow Springs – an interview with Jared of Super Fly Comics

    Jared-Super-Fly

    “It’s the best job I’ve ever had, hands down. We had [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator] Kevin Eastman here last year. He thanked us for having him come here to do signings. I’m like, oh man, this dude is thanking me for him having a career. I was like, I’m not going to cry in front of this guy. It meant a whole lot.”

  • BLOG— ‘Vivre la vie,’ despite all

    Truly, vivre la vie. Henri Matisse, "Still Life with Dance," 1909. (In the public domain)

    The best response, which isn’t actually a response, is to live as wisely and deeply as you know how. Each of us has one life, and it’s ours to live. The French have a phrase for this, naturally. It’s “vivre la vie,” living life.
