Borrowed from the boys

Posted 5/19/2012 in Columns

Doesn't it seem like men have it easier where weight loss is concerned? It doesn't seem to take any time at all for a guy to get into tip-top shape. And don't even get me started on how quickly and easily those rascals can lose fat and gain muscle. It's quite unfair.

Adele Elliott: Exodus, part two

Posted 5/12/2012 in Columns

As a child, I was terrified of trains. I cried if our car stopped near a train track or crossing. Many songs have been written about the romantic sound of a distant whistle. I cannot relate to lyrics about the allure of a train whistle's screech. That sound pierces chills and panic into my body. To me, it is the soundtrack of horror movies.

A Stone's throw

Last weekend was a fun yet busy one, with Market Street Festival and Cinco de Mayo falling on the same day. I had Market Street After Dark on Friday night, Zumba In The Street with my Y peeps the following morning, then, of course, a little Market Street shopping in the Mississippi May humidity.

 

Being beautiful: Heaven on earth, right now

Posted 5/12/2012 in Community

It is true that life is measured not by the breaths we take but the moments that take our breath away. I have so very much to measure this Mother's Day.

'Pop's songs': After years of jotting down ditties, Dr. Smith goes to Austin, where family ties help realize a dream

Posted 5/5/2012 in Entertainment

"Some of these go back years and years," murmured Perrin Smith, shuffling through a stack of well-worn legal pads and spiral notebooks on a coffee table in his den. He kneeled on the floor, thumbing through pages, pausing from time to time when a remembered lyric caught his eye. The notebooks are filled with songs he's written, some finished, some not. There have been hundreds in all. But then, the retired Columbus physician will tell you he always has a song percolating. "Every pocket in my closet has notecards or little notebooks in them because, when something comes to you, you need to write it down then, or it will be flat gone in 10 minutes," he said, moving to an easy chair and hooking one knee comfortably over the padded arm.

Mass installation of "clay bodies" headed for Thursday opening

Posted 5/5/2012 in Entertainment

Every artist's work is unique, embodying something elemental of its maker, but Dylan Karges' "clay bodies" are a rare sight indeed. It's not often one comes by a mass installation of more than 1,000 ceramic figurines.

Roadside goodness

Posted 5/5/2012 in Columns

On Friday afternoon a week ago, as I set out to run my errands before the weekend, I decided to take the scenic route to East Columbus down Military Road and Highway 12 to Lehmberg. As I passed Wolf Road to my left, I noticed Beard's Produce that I had frequented in the past. Somehow it had slipped my mind this spring. I adore a good produce stand. There's something just so nostalgic and reminiscent of a simpler time. And so I vowed to swing back by on my way home to pick up a few things for our first summer soiree of the season.
