“It’s Just a Dance”: On Jodie Sweetin and Living a Fuller Life

Last Monday on Dancing with the Stars, Full House (and now Fuller House) star Jodie Sweetin performed what judges said was her best dance ever—one week after one of her worst nights of the season. Host Tom Bergeron asked her, “You got so rattled last week. What did you do to not be rattled?” “I had fun … it’s […]

5 Things I Learned from a 50-Day Meditation Streak

Like so many of us, I’m an overthinker. My mind whirrs mercilessly, day and night. Therefore, for years I’ve been saying, “I really should start meditating.” I “knew” it would benefit me, but the thought of trying to get rid of my thoughts for 20 minutes a day was far too daunting. So I never really […]

Why I Still Love The X-Files

Why I Still Love <em>The X-Files</em>

Chances are, you’ve had this experience: You loved something (or someone) deeply, intensely. It was a part of your world, a part of your heart, so much a part of your daily life that you sort of forgot how special it was. You forgot to appreciate it. You forgot to be grateful for it. And […]

‘Everyone is Always Playing a Role’: Q&A with Noni Hazlehurst on <em>A Place to Call Home</em>, Australia, and Acting

If you’ve linked to this page from the story at the Huffington Post, click here to find where the Q&A left off.

<em>The X-Files</em>, Aliens, Comedy, Podcasts, and Spiders: My Super-Long Q&A with Dean Haglund

All right. Let me geek out here a little bit. Back in the day, that day being the late 90s and early 00s, when The X-Files was in its initial airing, I was a huge fan. And I still am. I still think it was one of the best shows ever made. So about a year ago […]

“I Couldn’t Imagine Doing Anything Else”: Q&A with <em>Poldark’s</em> Ruby Bentall

I’m so delighted to have had the chance to interview a number of the fabulous actors who are starring in the BBC show Poldark, an 18th-century British drama based on the first two Poldark novels by Winston Graham. (Poldark aired in the U.S. on PBS). Here I continue these interviews in a Q&A with the lovely Ruby Bentall, who plays Verity Poldark, […]

The Passerine Project: Bridging Brooklyn and Afghanistan Through Song

It’s easy to take for granted the things we’ve never been without. If we have two healthy legs, we don’t think about what it means to be able to run and walk and jump. If our lungs work well, we don’t give a second thought to being able to breathe. But what about story? Those […]

“I Want to Be Challenged Every Day”: Q&A with <em>Poldark’s</em> Heida Reed

  If you watched the BBC show Poldark this year (which aired in the U.S. on PBS), you’re not alone; the 2015 remake of the 1970s hit series is attracted huge numbers of viewers around the world, all of whom are eagerly awaiting the second season of the show, set to air in 2016. And, of course, one of the things […]
