The Slant: Visiting Hell’s Backyard

Being a parent is one of life great rewards. I am reminded as my boys are getting older of the all great snapshots in my mind. First haircut, picnics at Bluebird. Soccer games in the park… On a recent trip to Paris with the family, I became very aware of how beautiful Paris is. Being […]

It’s Been Swell Five years ago Andrea Adelson, the Indy’s wonderful editor, said yes to an idea I had for a column about Laguna Beach. And so it was, Laguna Observed was born, and except for the yearly trips to the Midwest and Paris, I got to babble on about darling Laguna every other week. […]

Laguna’s Art Museum and Summer It’s May. As far as I’m concerned, summer is here.

Lessons in Paying Attention Okay, I learned something new last Sunday. I learned the difference between chamber music and baroque. You probably already know. Well, I was raised by an amateur opera singer, so you think I’d have known too. But I didn’t, and thus, I went off happily to a fine First Sunday concert […]

Discovering a Treasure Trove I went to the Woman’s Club Art Fair last Sunday…and spent money. I hadn’t wanted to spend. I hadn’t expected to spend. To that end, I only had two dollars in my wallet. But I did have my checkbook. I don’t usually carry my checkbook. The only reason I had my […]

Resolutions 2010 Of course you don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I’m certainly not accusing you of such a thing. No sophisticated, grounded, pragmatic or even dreamer person over the age of 12 makes New Year’s resolutions. Preposterous. Nor am I about to suggest you make this year, the start of a new decade, in a […]
