Show & Tell: Leave No Trace

Okay, New England! It’s the time of year to shake the sand out of your pockets, fold up the beach umbrella, and load the station wagon for home.

Show & Tell: Lean On Pete

A national holiday, even one as somber as Memorial Day, is usually a beneficial break from routine. But I count on routine to tell me what I should be doing on any particular day, and when I got to work today and discovered that I had blown my usual Monday afternoon invitation to a film discussion at The Music Hall, I grew slightly impatient with myself.
