Back to the Farm/Forest School

The impetus for this story began when my neighbor told me she was moving to Millis, MA, so her toddler could attend the Sprouts Farm/Forest Preschool. In projecting, what I heard was: there is a media and technology backlash brewing among young parents!

I was thrilled. I have been waiting for the backlash only because I feel I have been witnessing the need for a step-back.

Flag football

new to cambridge

Football is responsible for more injuries than all of the three other major sports combined. Especially, the children who play football also have too many injuries. Thankfully, players in these times have to be removed from games if they suffer a head injury; mainly a concussion.

Lily Pad Concert

Tunefoolery

To cap off what has been a beautiful fall October day, I strolled happily to the Lily Pad in Inman Square Cambridge to take in a tunefoolery concert. Tunefoolery, of you are not aware is a group of musicians who have had mental health issues. These talented players play instruments, including guitars, accordians, flutes, clarinets, pianos etc. Some play acapella. Some play instruments and sing.

Lesley Professor Chronicles Punk's Jewish Origins

Every new movement in music gives birth to a new rebellion, and no genre exemplifies rebellion more than punk rock. If genres were drinks, then punk rock would come in a shot glass.
