Humans have always had a complicated relationship with weather. Ancient cultures prayed and made offerings to gods in hopes of receiving conditions conducive to growing crops. Adverse weather, then, was often interpreted as displeasure on behalf of those same beings—a punishment for failing to observe proper rituals.

Sometimes, writing about art and theater feels a lot like falling down the proverbial rabbit hole as I try to find the angle to write about wandering through a haunted-theater immersive experience, getting splashed in a Halloween horror show in the basement of a spaghetti emporium, sweating through a DIY D&D in a comic shop, savoring (har har!)

To update the metaphor, writing this column is a lot like drunk-clicking through an endless algorithm o…

Mostly everyone is familiar with Maslow’s Heirarchy of Needs. Those begin at the bottom with the most fundamental needs – food and shelter and then safety. The third rung up is the need for belonging and love. And this begins the hierarchy of needs that relate to mental and emotional well-being. People who are in minority groups often feel as if they do not belong in certain environments and that they are not “loved” as an equal part of that society. As a result, they suffer from emotional issues that impact their well-being – anxiety, stress, and even depression. They are hesitan…
