Katherine Arden Final.jpg

What do you think happens when a Russian/French major graduates from Middlebury College and decides to go pick macadamia nuts on a farm in Maui, Hawaii? Why she gets promoted to making smoothies, of course… then guiding horse tours… then teaching English in France… landing a three-book deal with Del Rey Books, a subsidiary of Random House.

Lessons in listening: Celebrating who we are and what we love in 2019

Posted on December 27, 2018 |
By Laura Wilkinson



Wilkinson, Laura.jpg

The light is slowly returning and the final days of 2018 are upon us. The festivities of December will be replaced by the quiet starkness of January. As much as I enjoy the rituals of the season, I welcome the opportunity to mirror the dormancy of the outer world with introspection. For many, this time also inspires hopefulness with the creation of New Year’s resolutions. As most resolutions tend to be grounded in health and wellness, the nurse practitioner/health coach in me feels obliged to add my two cents on this matter.

Movie review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Posted on December 27, 2018 |
By Joan Ellis



Movie Review 2.jpg

Bohemian Rhapsody— Running Time: 2:14 — Rating: PG-13

By way of confession, a fear of “just another rock musical” kept me away from “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Wrong on all counts. Within minutes of its opening, this movie captures hearts, including mine.

Ways of Seeing by Leeya Tudek: Time in Africa helps redefine beauty

Posted on December 27, 2018 |
By Leeya Tudek



Tudek, Leeya.jpg

How do you measure a woman’s beauty? Is it in how many compliments she receives? How many people are attracted to her? How many likes she gets on Instagram posts?

As a girl, “beautiful” can feel like a state you are expected to reach in order to fulfill your existence, and to matter.

Growing up, I became aware of this message from society incrementally. I noticed it while trying to find clothes that were nice looking and functional, and discovering that only boys get real pockets in their pants.

Eric Davis: Health care to be hot topic in 2020

Posted on December 27, 2018 |
By Eric Davis



Davis, Eric May 2018.jpg

Health care is likely to be one of the most important issues in the 2020 presidential and congressional elections.

Earlier this month, a Texas federal district judge ruled that the entire Affordable Care Act (ACA) is unconstitutional. This decision will definitely make health care a more salient issue in 2019 and 2020.
