Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

February 22nd, 2017

Ben sees Boulder as the perfect place for his current endeavor: InstaMarch – The Imaginary Jobs Program. He told me: “The purpose of InstaMarch is that I want to get people all around the country doing their own micro-demonstrations on whatever issues they feel are important. And, I’m offering free mentorships – I’m a computer engineering teacher. So, I’m offering free mentorships in social media, computer programming, organizational design – all sorts of things created around these protests. Anybody can do it – left or right – but I have some certain terms for anybody doing... Read More

Edible Indulgence and the NFL

January 30th, 2017

Photo Credit: pixaby.com Why does the National Football League (NFL) deny their players the right to use marijuana instead of habit-forming opioids?  That is the billion dollar question!  While NFL players continue to be suspended for cannabis use with just 35 nanogram of THC per milliliter, consider the fact, the Olympics allow four-times that amount for athletes around the world in the biggest competition on the planet. Crazy, right? So, what’s a football fan to do…watch the game high, of course! Edibles are a best bet for an evening of high-stakes football.  Here’s what to expect in... Read More

Where was Boulder’s Dushanbe Teahouse Made?

September 23rd, 2015

One of the most common pieces of advice a Boulderite will give to a new resident is “Go check out the Dushanbe Teahouse,” but what’s so special about a teahouse? Well, ours was handcrafted in Tajikistan during the Cold War, and kindly shipped by our sister city of Dushanbe. The rebuilding of the teahouse in Boulder was an awesome accomplishment which nearly did not happen. The idea of a sister city or twin town developed from the Cold War following WWII. The point was to form legal and social bonds between disparate cultures, and even promote relationships between former enemies.... Read More

A Brief, Chaotic History of the Flagstaff Star

November 19th, 2014

Imagine, getting back from a long day in Denver. It’s cold, it’s dark, and there’s some minor evening traffic. Then, you ascend the final hill towards Boulder, and you’re greeted by the bright shape of a star on the mountains. That’s the moment I wait for every November. During Veteran’s Day last week, the star began its annual winter residency in Boulder. The star is an important symbol, and no Boulder winter is complete without the giant glowing shape on Flagstaff Mountain. It provides a little extra light in a season when days are shorter and nights... Read More

Walk your way to joy! Finding peace, one step at a time.

September 11th, 2014

One of the greatest challenges we find along our life journey or spiritual path is to feel love and compassion for ourselves. It requires that we treat ourselves well, and give ourselves time and space to be still, to re-fuel, to rest and to gather our resources.’Self-care’ is a term we hear a lot now, and it means just this – finding ways, no matter how small and seemingly unimpressive, to find some peace for a moment. In this busy and pressured lifestyle we often have, we need this time to rest and to remember who we are and how we operate without the busy-ness. When we choose to... Read More
