  • Relaxing is Exhausting

    By Ilana Angel

    August 13, 2012 | 6:27 am

    I have been at the lake in Ontario for two days and have done nothing but eat, sleep and sit. I sit on the couch, sit on the porch, sit on the deck, and sit in the kitchen.  I eat, nap, watch TV, and talk to whoever is around. I have colored, beaded, and played with Barbie. I have...

  • Is Sex Without Emotion a Deal Breaker?

    By Ilana Angel

    June 21, 2012 | 5:11 pm

    I had a conversation this week about sex and cheating that was fascinating.  By fascinating of course I mean men are pigs.  I think sex requires emotion to be good, but the man I was speaking with insisted sex can be great without emotion, and sometimes the lack of emotion can even...

  • Ashtrays and Diet Coke

    November 7, 2008 | 4:53 pm

    You did it even though we told you not to. That you would hurt too many people just to make yourself happy. We would miss you. And causing other people pain wasn't good. That you had to be patient. The medicine would eventually work. But you finally gave up paddling through life and...
  • Sense and Sensitivity

    By Lori Gottlieb

    If you spend much time looking at online dating profiles -- and admit it, you do -- you'll notice that the No. 1 characteristic men seem to be seeking in a potential match is "attractive." We women (attractive or not) are overwhelmingly in search of "sensitive." For us, Mr. Right is...

  • Ex-treme Takeoff

    By Carin Davis

    April 21, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    You always see him one more time. It's inevitable. And it's always on a bad hair day.

    I'm flying home from a Chi-town visit with the Davis fam. Sporting yoga pants, glasses and a tired green hoodie, I grab my backpack, my book, "Midlife Crisis at 30" (required airplane reading), and...

  • What Men Want (To Say)

    By Mark Miller

    June 17, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    On a typical coffee date, because we're meeting for the first time, awkward conversation comes with the territory. Neither of us completely reveals what we're thinking or feeling. We're shy, holding back, concealing, putting on a good face, feeling the other person out.

    How much more...

  • Free Fallin’

    By Keren Engelberg

    April 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I'm riding shotgun in Hawthorne's truck, and we're on our way to jump out of a plane together. As the truck bumps along to Perris Valley, I'm having one of those moments where the same word keeps repeating itself in my head: "requiem." Requiem, requiem, requiem. My brain has been...

  • Vocal Musicians Make a Joyful Noise

    By Lauren Korduner

    January 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Human voices converge on the same note, echoing a haunting harmony -- arousing complicated emotions.

    This has been the buzz surrounding an award-winning Jewish a cappella group, Shir Appeal, a group of college students from Massachusetts, who will bring their hypnotizing harmonies...

  • Sept. 11 Still Roils Our Nation’s Heritage

    By Arthur J. Magida

    September 4, 2003 | 7:59 pm

    Anniversaries take on lives of their own. The further from the original event, the more laden they become with symbolism, meaning and portent.

    Since the tempo of our time is fast, even abrupt, it's not surprising that since Sept. 11, 2001, we've backed away from the stomach-churning...

  • Diaspora Diversity Focus of ‘Portraits’

    By Diane Arieff

    July 17, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    An Argentine gaucho lounges near his horse. A Bombay bride displays her upturned palms, filigreed entirely with henna. An Ethiopian boy lights candles with a classmate. A woman poses stiffly in her kitchen in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. What unites these disparate images is that the people...

  • Musical Memory

    By Michele Goldman

    November 14, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Ever since I was a toddler, I knew that my grandmother, Lisa Jura Golabek Roberts, was a Holocaust survivor.

    During our piano lessons, she awed me with stories of her past. As a little girl, she was a child prodigy in Vienna; when Hitler rose to power, Lisa's parents sent her on the...

  • A Nightmare on Wedding Street

    By Michele Goldman

    July 11, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    As a little girl, Anna* always dreamed of a perfect wedding. Then, at 32, after a three-and-a-half-year engagement, she was ready to realize that dream. But recently, what she thought was going to be a dream, turned into a nightmare.

    First, there were the fights with her mother over...

  • Oy Vey Iz Mir!

    By Dr. David Schechter

    November 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    "But mom, I feel too sick to go to school today. My tummy hurts, my throat hurts, I feel hot," moans 7-year-old Adam. His mother kisses his forehead and replies, "Adam, you feel cool as a cucumber! You're probably not sick, you're nervous about making friends at your new school. But...
