This past weekend, I layered on some warm clothes, and ventured out to Pittsfield, where there were multiple art show receptions that I wanted to attend. There were also several writer's workshops that I found my way to, so … Continue reading the story "Art weekend in Pittsfield"

This weekend, I decided to come out of my hibernation and face this never-ending winter that has everybody moaning and groaning. I had told myself recently, that I wasn't going to go out in the elements( except when absolutely necessary), until I could go out in my flip flops and short sleeves. I know, not a … Continue reading the story "Visiting the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers"
Like many other things, the Berkshires were slow to welcome the frozen yogurt phenomenon to our area. Since it has arrived however, it has become a standard business in almost every big town in the county. They are all fine and well, I mean, who doesn't like yummy froyo with tons of tasty toppings piled on? But, out of all … Continue reading the story "Froyo heaven at Ayelada….."
Like most women, I am fickle about my hair. Of course, I am the opposite of most women, who visit hair stylists on a regular basis, and use products and implements to get their hair just right. I never used to cut my hair, it just grew to its natural state, and I loved it. I didn't color or style it any special way, it just … Continue reading the story "A visit to Peter Alvarez Salon in Lenox"
There was a time, that finding a good breakfast in the Berkshires was a pretty easy task for me. That was back when a fantastic café existed and I still ate dairy and eggs.

Sadly, they closed last year, taking my main 'go … Continue reading the story "Finding a good breakfast in the Berkshires"

The event is known as 'Opera Notte at the Whit', and plans to be a regular affair, bringing … Continue reading the story "A night of opera at the Whitney Center for the Arts"

Most people who know me, understand that I am a bit of a freak when it comes to nutrition. I believe in eating whole foods as much as possible, live a vegan(sometimes slipping to vegetarian) lifestyle and love to be active. I rarely get sick and only believe in taking vitamins and supplements when my … Continue reading the story "Fire Cider Love"
Put me in a bookstore, and I can happily browse for hours. If it's a big bookstore, I would stay for days, if I were able. Though I have been known to frequent the larger chains, and mega stores in the bigger cities, my favorite bookstores are small, independent shops.... They tend to be unique, often suited to the owners tastes, or to the tastes of … Continue reading the story "Independent bookstores rock!"
