Remember Aretha Franklin with the Queen of Soul’s Top 10 Greatest Songs

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, died Thursday at age 76 following years of ill health and a reported cancer battle.

A musical phenomenon who crossed musical, racial and gender barriers, Franklin began her vocal career as a teenager, singing gospel hymns in her father’s Detroit church. From these humble beginnings she scaled to the very heights of stardom, scoring her first national chart-topper in 1967 with a searing version of Otis Redding’s “Respect.”

Since then, the artist has notched 77 Hot 100 chart entries, and earned an astounding 18 Grammys out of 44 nominations. In 1987, two decades after her first No. 1, Franklin became the first woman to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and was later named the Greatest Singer of All Time by Rolling Stone.

RELATED: Aretha Franklin’s Death Is ‘Imminent’ as Source Confirms ‘She Has Been Ill for a Long Time’

In honor of her remarkable life and otherworldly talent, here are 10 of Franklin’s greatest songs.

1. “Respect” (1967)

Franklin’s signature song was written by soul great Otis Redding, who released his own version two years earlier on his 1965 album Otis Blue. Sung by Redding, the track reflected the stereotypical gender norms of the day: the man works hard for money, which his woman then spends. Sung by Franklin at her fiery best, the song was transformed into an anthem of empowerment for women. Recorded on Valentine’s Day 1967, it reached No. 1 that June. Her version was ultimately named one of the top five greatest songs of all time by Rolling Stone.

2. “Chain of Fools” (1968)

This hit off Franklin’s 1968 album Lady Soul was written by a very young Don Covay, who recorded a demo for Otis Redding. The early incarnation had a drastically different feel, recorded as “a straight blues song about field hands in the South,” according to Rolling Stone. However, after Franklin reworked the lyrics — and producer Jerry Wexler added an extra dose of stomp — the song took off, reaching No. 2 in January 1968.

3. “I Say Little Prayer” (1968)

Franklin took this Dionne Warwick hit — penned by the incomparable Burt Bacharach and Hal David — and made it a showstopper of her own. Ironically, she originally had no serious intention of recording it. Franklin and her backing group, the Sweet Inspirations, were singing the song as a warm-up in the studio one day when Jerry Wexler heard its potential. Franklin’s version, featuring Clayton Ivey’s hard-driving piano, was issued as the B-side to her single “The House That Jack Built,” and quickly began to receive airplay from radio DJs.

4. “To Be Young Gifted and Black” (1972)

Nina Simone wrote and recorded “To Be Young, Gifted and Black” in 1969 as a tribute to A Raisin in the Sun playwright Lorraine Hansberry, who died of pancreatic cancer four years earlier. An instant anthem for the civil rights movement, Franklin’s gospel rendition became the title track for her 1972 album — her 20th. As both a social comment and a vocal performance, the song ranks among her very best.

5. “Think” (1968)

Something of a sequel (or at least distant cousin) of “Respect,” Franklin wrote this feminist rallying cry with Teddy White, her husband and manager at the time. Originally recorded for Atlantic Records with her crack crew of Muscle Shoals session players — including Joe South and Spooner Oldham — the song also provided the soundtrack to Franklin’s standout cameo in the 1980 comedy, The Blues Brothers.

6. “How I Got Over” (1972)

Clara Ward composed this gospel hymn in 1951, drawing on her experiences traveling throughout segregated states in the American South. White men were outraged that Ward and her singing group were riding in style in a luxurious Cadillac, so they swarmed the car and hurled racial slurs. The entourage finally escaped when Ward’s mother feigned demonic possession and began screaming at the men in tongues.

Legendary gospel queen Mahalia Jackson earned a Grammy for her version of the song in 1961, and two years later sang it on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington alongside Dr. Martin Luther King. Franklin’s stunning rendition was featured on her 1972 live album, Amazing Grace.

7. “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” (1968)

Composed by the hit-making husband and wife songwriting duo Carole King and Gerry Goffin, the seeds of the song were sewn when Franklin’s producer Jerry Wexler happened to drive past the pair while they were out walking in New York City. Wexler had been mulling over a distinctive song title in his head, so he shouted at the two tunesmiths, “Why don’t you write a song called ‘Natural Woman’?” Using the title as a starting point, they did just that — and gave Wexler a songwriting credit to show their appreciation.

Included on Lady Soul, the song features backing vocals from her two sisters, Carolyn and Erma. King herself would later record a version on her breakthrough 1971 album, Tapestry. In 2015, when King was recognized at the Kennedy Center Honors, Franklin sang “(You Make Me Feel Like) a Natural Woman” in tribute.

8. “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Loved You)” (1967)

Franklin’s first major hit also marked the beginning of her fruitful collaboration with producer Jerry Wexler, who paired her million dollar voice with session players for the Stax label and also members of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. According to Franklin, “they just told me to sit on the piano and sing” — and the musical alchemy was apparent after just a few notes. “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” became her debut single on Atlantic — hitting the top spot on the R&B charts — and served as the title track for her inaugural Atlantic LP.

9. “Until You Come Back to Me (That’s What I’m Gonna Do)” (1973)

Stevie Wonder wrote and recorded this song in 1967, but it would take nearly a decade for him to release it himself. In the intervening years, he played the track for Franklin, who issued her own version in 1973, backed by Donny Hathaway on electric piano and Cissy Houston on backup vocals. It quickly became a million seller, reaching the Top 10 on both the Hot 100 and the Billboard R&B charts.

10. “I Knew You Were Waiting For Me” (1987)

Franklin’s 1987 duet with George Michael became her first Hot 100 number one since “Respect” two decades earlier. Originally pitched to Tina Turner as a solo number, the song went to Franklin and Michael at the suggestion of Arista Records impresario Clive Davis.

“The first time I heard George was with Wham! and I liked it then,” Franklin said in a 2017 interview with EW. “He had a very unique sound, very different from anything that was out there. When Clive suggested we get together for ‘I Knew You Were Waiting,’ I was all ready. It reminded me of Jerry Wexler. We’d go in the studio and cut songs. If we were happy with what we recorded, Jerry would say, ‘Let’s wait until tomorrow. If we feel the same way that we do now, maybe we have a hit.’ ‘I Knew You Were Waiting’ had that. Musically, it does not grow old.”

Michael, who had recently split with his Wham! partner Andrew Rigeley, recalled being extremely nervous to sing with one of his great vocal heroes. “Nobody can emulate Aretha Franklin,” he wrote in his book, Bare. “It’s stupid to try. I just tried to stay in character, keep it simple — it was very understated in comparison to what she did.”

Twin Peaks Creator David Lynch Says Trump Could Be ‘One of the Greatest Presidents in History’

David Lynch thinks Donald Trump‘s presidency has disrupted the America’s political system in a good way.

The Twin Peaks creator and director spoke to The Guardian about his political leanings, revealing that he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary and thinks he voted Libertarian in the election. But although he didn’t support Trump, he now feels the real estate mogul’s administration could change the country for the better.

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much,” Lynch said. “No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.”

While Lynch says he supports an outsider changing things, he doesn’t think Trump is doing a good job himself. He just hopes his win opens the door to more options to serve as president.

“Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done,” Lynch said. “Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.

‘Greatest Show On Earth’ Shutting Down After 146 Years

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is permanently closing “The Greatest Show on Earth” in May after 146 years entertaining millions of Americans.

The iconic razzmatazz under the big top was felled by dropping attendance, high operating costs, fickle public tastes and battles with animal rights activists. 

“I have made the difficult business decision that Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will hold its final performances in May of this year,” circus CEO Kenneth Feld of Feld Entertainment said in a statement.

“The circus and its people have continually been a source of inspiration and joy to my family and me, which is why this was such a tough business decision to make. We are extremely grateful to the millions of families who have made Ringling Bros. part of their lives for generations.”

Last year, the circus retired its elephants to its conservation farm in Florida amid continuing protests about animals in the show. But once the elephants were gone, the demand for tickets dropped even more dramatically, according to Feld.

Company officials told workers Saturday night after shows in Orlando and Miami.

Ringling Bros. has two touring circuses that will perform 30 shows between now and May. Stops will include Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, Brooklyn and Washington, D.C. The final shows will be in Providence, Rhode Island, on May 7 and in Uniondale, New York, at the Nassau County Coliseum on May 21.

It’s been a long, colorful road of clowns, trapeze artists in sparkly spandex, dancing elephants and surly tigers. Phineas Taylor Barnum went on the road in the mid-1800s with his traveling spectacle of animals and human oddities, and the five Ringling brothers began performing juggling acts and skits from their home base in Baraboo, Wisconsin, in 1884. They merged in 1919 to tour together as “The Greatest Show on Earth.” The Ringling family ran the circus until 1967 then sold it to Feld Entertainment.

Technology brought competition from movies and TV, video games and the internet, and animal activists and members of the public became increasingly concerned about treatment of the animals on the road and in the acts.

“The competitor in many ways is time,” Feld told The Associated Press, adding that transporting the show by rail and other circus quirks — such as providing a traveling school for performers’ children — are throwbacks to another era that couldn’t compete with modern fare. “It’s a different model that we can’t see how it works in today’s world to justify and maintain an affordable ticket price. So you’ve got all these things working against it.”

The Felds say their existing animals — lions, tigers, camels, donkeys, alpacas, kangaroos and llamas — will go to suitable homes. Feld’s daughter, Chief Operating Officer Juliette Feld, said the company will continue operating the Center for Elephant Conservation.

Feld Entertainment will also continue to produce its other, profitable, shows— Monster Jam, Disney on Ice and Marvel Live — and will attempt to place some circus workers in those operations.

 

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post misstated that the Ringling brothers began performing in Wisconsin in 1984. They began in 1884.

The Greatest Generation

The Greatest Generation


In the spring of 1984, I went to the northwest of France, to Normandy, to prepare an NBC documentary on the fortieth anniversary of D-Day, the massive and daring Allied invasion of Europe that marked the beginning of the end of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. There, I underwent a life-changing experience. As I walked the beaches with the American veterans who had returned for this anniversary, men in their sixties and seventies, and listened to their stories, I was deeply moved and profoundly grateful for all they had done. Ten years later, I returned to Normandy for the fiftieth anniversary of the invasion, and by then I had come to understand what this generation of Americans meant to history. It is, I believe, the greatest generation any society has ever produced.” In this superb book, Tom Brokaw goes out into America, to tell through the stories of individual men and women the story of a generation, America’s citizen heroes and heroines who came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War and went on to build modern America. This generation was united not only by a common purpose, but also by common values-duty, honor, economy, courage, service, love of family and country, and, above all, responsibility for oneself. In this book, you will meet people whose everyday lives reveal how a generation persevered through war, and were trained by it, and then went on to create interesting and useful lives and the America we have today. “At a time in their lives when their days and nights should have been filled with innocent adventure, love, and the lessons of the workaday world, they were fighting in the most primitive conditions possible across the bloodied landscape of France, Belgium, Italy, Austria, and the coral islands of the Pacific. They answered the call to save the world from the two most powerful and ruthless military machines ever assembled, instruments of conquest in the hands of fascist maniacs. They faced great odds and a late start, b.

America’s Greatest Democratic Presidents of the 20th Century: Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Bill Clinton

America’s Greatest Democratic Presidents of the 20th Century: Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Bill Clinton


*Weaves the lives and presidencies of all 6 Democratic Presidents into one entertaining and educational narrative*Includes dozens of pictures of the presidents and important people, places, and events in their lives*Analyzes the legacies and accomplishments of each president. *Includes a Table of Contents. The Democrats who were elected president in the 20th century were responsible for a seemingly never ending list of accomplishments. Woodrow Wilson established the blueprint for the progressive presidents that would follow him, particularly Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson, while guiding the nation through World War I. FDR expanded that vision with his New Deal, completely revolutionizing the social contract between Americans and their federal government. While combating the Great Depression and the Axis powers in World War II, FDR has widely been considered one of the greatest presidents in history. When Roosevelt died in April 1945, Vice President Truman, somewhat unprepared for the Presidency, now had to fill some of the biggest shoes in American history. The new president had to usher America through victory in Europe in his first month and decide to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki a few months later, but the end of World War II produced only the first of many consequential decisions Truman would face during his nearly 8 years in office. As president, Truman would lay the groundwork for the next 50 years of American foreign policy, as the architect of Cold War containment, the man who signed off on the Marshall Plan, and the commander-in-chief during much of the Korean War. In many ways, John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his young family were the perfect embodiment of the 60s. The decade began with a sense of idealism, personified by the attractive Kennedy, his beautiful and fashionable wife Jackie, and his young children. Months into his presidency, Kennedy exhorted the country to reach for the stars, calling upon the nation to send a man to the Mo

Here’s Why Hedgehogs Are The Greatest Creatures On Earth

Oh sorry, were you not aware that hedgehogs reign superior in the animal kingdom? Well, we have news for you. They do. They are just SO. DAMN. CUTE! But if that’s not enough to convince you, no worries, we’ve anticipated this. Just give us five minutes of your time and you’ll never doubt it again.

Once upon a time, a pinecone, a cactus and a nugget had a baby. No other way to explain the birth of the greatest creature known to man, honestly.

Why should you care about these little guys, you ask? Uh, you mean, other than the fact that they’re teeny tiny cutie pies?

Well, hedghogs fit perfectly in the palm of your hand.

They’re so adorably small, they fit right inside your coffee mug. Which means there’s definitely room for them in your heart.

Their soft little hands and feet are perfect to hold.

Their miniature velvety ears are soft and snuggly.

They make the ultimate travel companion.

A photo posted by Biddy (@biddythehedgehog) on

They’re basically Olympian athletes.

And are always up for adventure.

Some hedgehogs are even a little glamorous. Move over, Beyoncé.

Their quills may be spiky but that doesn’t mean you can’t pet them.

And they’re always down to hang in the great outdoors. Picnic, anyone?

Hedgehogs are nocturnal so they’re always ready to party the night away.

A photo posted by @hedgehog_bb on

They’re probably better sunrise-watching buddies than a SO, tbh.  

They also love to binge watch Netflix shows in bed all night long. Sounds familiar? Could this be your spirit animal?

Their rosy little tongues are the best.

A photo posted by Biddy (@biddythehedgehog) on

They’re not picky eaters. 

But their favorite treat of all is meal worms. And even though worms are kind of gross, they look so happy eating them, you can’t even hate. You do you, baby hedge!

Hedgehogs are so photogenic they’re the perfect model for major Instagram clout.

Just look at this magical Quidditch star.

And this diehard Taylor Swift fan.

Basically any object you place next to a hedgehog suddenly becomes adorable. Seriously. Just look at this thing!

When a hedgehog sleeps it’s probably the cutest thing in the entire world.

Though they’re a little shy at first, they totally get along with other animals. What social butterflies!

A photo posted by Biddy (@biddythehedgehog) on

And when they’re scared, they get even smaller and curl into a little ball of love.

What’s better than a regular hedgehog? Bath time hedgehog!

AND THEY FLOAT!!!

Belly rubs are like heaven to them. It really doesn’t take much to keep them happy.

They love playing hide and seek (and are surprisingly good at it). 

Really, these fashionable lil’ babes just make the world a brighter place.

Still not convinced that hedghogs are the best? Maybe this vine of hedgehogs being muffins will help.

What’s not to love?!

Bill Nye Reading Mean Tweets Is His Greatest Experiment Yet

Bill Nye taught us a lot about chemical reactions over the years, but none of that comes close to the Science Guy’s reactions to mean tweets

Nye recently read some unflattering tweets in support of a Kickstarter campaign for a documentary about him, which, to be honest, we kind of hope just turns out to be two more hours of tweets.

Mean tweets are a staple on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” but what happens when Nye’s science and reason meet the incoherent ramblings of the Internet? You get gold, people. Pure gold.

The Ten Greatest Stoners in Movie History

2015-07-09-1436481138-3421662-candc

2015 will most likely go down as the year that the once-taboo became respectable, with both gay marriage and marijuana finding legal and public acceptance nationwide. While the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in all fifty states, the marijuana initiative is having an appropriately slower, but steady climb into legality. That said, we thought we’d take a look at some of cinema’s greatest proponents of the stoner lifestyle, before it all becomes downright conventional.


10. Jeff Spicoli–Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Sean Penn not only became a star with his turn as surfer/stoner Jeff Spicoli in the 1980s’ most iconic teen movie, he established how the stoners of the ’80s differed from their predecessors: while the rebels of the ’60s and ’70s viewed their use of cannabis as a symbol of rebellion, and preferred it to alcohol and the other symbols of their parents’ generation and its decadence, in the ’80s it was all about hedonism, which included drinking and smoking weed in kind. Spicoli’s mantra of “All I need are tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I’m fine,” became the motto of all kids raised in the Reagan Era.


9. Captain America (aka Wyatt) and Billy–Easy Rider (1969)

If the Beatles and Bob Dylan helped bring stoner culture into the Baby Boomers’ lexicon, Easy Rider was the movie that cemented stonerism as a necessary component of the counterculture. This was driven home in the now-classic scene where Wyatt and Billy (Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper) get country lawyer George Hanson (Jack Nicholson, in his star-making role) high for the first time (“Marijuana! Is that what that is?”), followed by George/Jack’s brilliantly stony monologue about how aliens are living and breeding among us.


8. Dave “Woody” Wooderson–Dazed and Confused (1993)

Matthew McConaughey’s character of perpetual teenager Woody Wooderson in director Richard Linklater’s homage to life in suburban Austin, TX., circa 1976, is never given a specific age, but his status as a weed connoisseur and an impressive lexicon of meme-worthy quotes (“Alright, alright, alright.” “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.” And the pièce de résistance: “Wooderson: Say, man, you got a joint? Mitch: No, not on me, man. Wooderson: It’d be a lot cooler if you did.”) make his status as an all-time stoner champ indisputable.


7. Harold and Kumar–Harold and Kumar Trilogy (2004, 2008, 2011)

Harold and Kumar brought stonerism into the 21st century with aplomb, style and epic cases of the munchies. What began as a simple odyssey to fuel their Maryjane-induced hunger pangs, led to an epic, Candide-like tale to such exotic locales at Guantanamo, Radio City Music Hall, KKK rallies, and smoking up with such disparate characters as Santa Claus, George W. Bush and a persona-smashing incarnation of Neil Patrick Harris.


8. Sgt. Elias–Platoon (1986)

Oliver Stone’s Oscar-sweeper told a story of the Vietnam War from the grunt’s POV. One of the first things that Private Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) sees when he arrives at his platoon’s camp is that the soldiers are clearly divided into two groups: the ultra-right wing boozers (led by psycho Sgt. Barnes, played to perfection by Tom Berenger) and the progressive rock & roll loving stoners, led by the philosophical Sgt. Elias (Willem Dafoe). I think most people can agree that there was nothing fun about the Vietnam War and the men who fought it were treated with equal contempt by the Vietnamese people and their fellow Americans upon returning home, one of the darkest chapters in our country’s history. That said, if you had to be there, deciding which camp you would have belonged to is one hell of a litmus test.


7. Ivan Martin–The Harder They Come (1972)

Perry Henzell’s story of country lad Ivan Martin (Reggae great Jimmy Cliff) who travels to big city Kingston with dreams of musical stardom is credited for single-handedly popularizing Reggae music and culture in the U.S. Of course as it deals with Rastafarian culture and people, there are epic amounts of ganja featured in this remarkable film, which has Ivan being pulled in opposite directions by crooked record producers and drug dealers, forcing him to become a criminal to survive. In the end, even the kind buds indigenous to Jamaica’s soil can’t change Ivan’s fate, but until then, what a ride!


6. Floyd–True Romance (1993)

A box office disappointment upon release that became a classic in retrospect, True Romance features a script by pre-Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino and a cast of actors who became a who’s-who of stars as the 1990s progressed. No one fit this bill more than Brad Pitt, whose scene-stealing supporting turn as Floyd, the uber-stoner roommate of Michael Rappaport’s Dick Ritchie, remains the film’s most memorable character, in spite of being surrounded with dozens of colorful turns by a dream cast. In fact, one could argue that Floyd’s passive stonerism is the only thing that saves him from becoming another notch on the gunbelt of ruthless mafia hitmen who lay waste to everyone else in their wake. “You guys wanna…smoke a bowl?”


5. Professor Jennings–Animal House (1978)

Donald Sutherland does a memorable loopy turn as stony college professor who turns on a few of his students one night in 1962. Tom Hulce’s monologue about universes inside fingernails remains one of the most authentic stony, pseud-intellectual monologues ever written. Sutherland’s gentle, amused demeanor throughout is priceless.


4. Carl Spackler–Caddyshack (1980)

Bill Murray’s left-of-center groundskeeper Carl is one of cinema’s most memorable oddballs, whether he’s chipping away a freshly-planted flower bed with fantasies of PGA glory, hunting terrorist gophers with plastic explosives or sharing his own strain of weed with Bushwood Country Club stalwart Ty Webb (Chevy Chase), explaining “This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sinsemilla. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff.” The classic scene between Murray and Chase was, apparently, entirely improvised on the spot. We are all the luckier for it.


3. The Dude–The Big Lebowski (1998)

Jeff Bridges’ “The Dude” is a prototypical sixties leftover who finds himself stuck in the middle of a 1990s film noir nightmare, in the Coen Brothers’ brilliant, unique satire. When the Dude isn’t swilling his signature White Russian cocktails, weed is his go-to vice of choice, which he smokes with gusto. Our favorite exchange: “Blond Treehorn Thug: [holding up a bowling ball] What the fuck is this? The Dude: Obviously you’re not a golfer.” Through it all, The Dude abides.


2. Hunter S. Thompson–Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

Director Terry Gilliam remains the only filmmaker to bring Hunter S. Thompson’s unique brand of mad brilliance to the screen with success, and what a dizzying, psychedelic masterpiece it is. Adapted from Thompson’s memoir (as his alter ego, Raoul Duke, played by Johnny Depp) detailing a cross-country road trip with attorney/comrade Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) and their search for “The American Dream,” fueled by a pharmacy of drugs and alcohol in the trunk of Duke’s car, The Red Shark. A book and a film that almost defy description, suffice to say that, according to most devoted stoners and practitioners of extreme behavior/lifestyles, no other film captures the energy, attitudes and visions of drug use better.


1. Pedro and “Man” (aka Cheech & Chong) – Up in Smoke (1978)

The most joyful depiction of stoner lifestyle ever committed to celluloid, Cheech & Chong popularized stoner humor and culture in a series of top-selling records during the 1970s, with this 1978 ode to taking it easy being their pinnacle. The plot, such as it is, has the boys unwittingly driving a van made of weed from L.A. to Mexico, with the Fascistic narc Sgt. Stedenko (Stacy Keach, hilarious) hot on their trail. Our favorite moment, which was a tough one to choose, is posted above.

Saying No to Find Our Greatest Yes

I did three crazy things today:

1) I UNsubscribed from the job ad daily alert that showed me opportunities within the government daily
2) I said NO to a potential secondment opportunity
3) I said NO to teaching yoga at a local studio for $ 30 an hour on weekday evenings

These were all scary moves for me, but very empowering. I cannot run myself thin. I cannot keep reaching out for more things instead of focusing on the key elements of a good life. I cannot keep thinking that my value lies in taking on another job or another opportunity. I must be still, do less, and allow my calling to blossom slowly but surely into what it’s meant to be.

I feel that right now in my journey, I have a dream that seems like an impossibility. It is to teach mindfulness, to find joy and balance in my own life and help others do the same. And to do this always. I keep finding excuses to run away from this dream, but it is my calling. It is what makes the world make sense for me. And I also dream of getting paid to do this at a rate that reflects my experience and worth.

While the full version of this dream may never come true, I realize today that this is not the point. We must work diligently and kindly towards our highest calling, and it is through the journey itself that we come to open to the most beautiful parts of ourselves.

As an example, this morning I buckled down and worked on jump back and jump through, one of the most elusive and difficult parts of the Ashtanga series. Before, I would sway between giving it up altogether, or powering through hoping that somehow I would attain it. But this morning, I slowed down. I broke it down. I did less poses. I stayed in the poses longer. I noticed where I am weak, without judging.

By the end of my practice, I felt stronger, closer to the impossible goal of jumping through. And it was exhilarating. Not because I will be able to jump through one day (I may or may not), but because I honoured my desire to reach further than I have before, I learned something new.

In between my shoulders, a deep sadness emerged. I cried at having tried so hard to find a job in government that reflected my truth and failing. When I stayed with the sadness and pain, I recalled a time when an old boyfriend broke up with me. I had felt like I had tried everything in my power to find love, but it wasn’t coming. Then, like now, I needed to surrender.

We move towards our goal or desire with passion, commitment and vision, but ultimately we have to let it go. We have to return to the reality that we already have everything we need, the love and purpose we desire is already within us. And ironically, when recognizing that nothing outside of us can bring us the love and purpose that we seek, we find it within ourselves, and the goals that we so desire come to us effortlessly.

For today, I embrace my greatest dreams and passions and move confidently towards them. With grace, with humility, with patience, and deep acceptance of the mystery of life.

Kim, Cosby and Kim: 2014’s Greatest Fails

MY PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER Column (12/31/2014)

2014. Wow. What a fantabulous year for humanity. Getting killed seemed to be more a crime than the act of killing. Comedy lost Robin Williams, Joan Rivers and Bill Cosby. The only one getting hit harder than a defenseless NFL quarterback was a defenseless NFL fiancé. The deadly Ebola epidemic was set to wipe out most of the U.S. population until it was miraculously thwarted away from our shores when scientists came up with the cure: November 4 mid-term election. Same-sex marriage bans were deemed illegal in 35 states tearing apart most every respectable straight marriage in those states. North Korea took over the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) film rating system and worst of all, marijuana became legal in…hey look, a cow.

Even if you do not believe good can come from bad, negative news may just be the balance in life we need to survive. As Martin Seligman Ph.D., Director of Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania said, “If we just wanted positive emotions, our species would have died out a long time ago.”

What we can learn from our missteps and adversity will many times offset the failures. While the prospect of patching up the road ahead may be bumpy, especially when you trudge through the potholes of 2014, some past wisdom may help us along the way.

I think the enemy is self-censorship. In a free society the biggest danger is that you’re afraid to the point where you censor yourself. – Tim Robbins

Sony Pictures pulled the film, The Interview, which fictionalizes the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, due to threats from North Korean hackers threatening 9-11 type attacks if the film is distributed and yet not a peep about A Haunted House 2. Would it be that the hackers knew how much more civilization is being damaged by Kevin Hart and Adam Sandler films. Now Transylvania is promising a blood bath if Vampire Academy is not pulled from Netflix.

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us. -Alexander Graham Bell

Like the past few years, the Phillies continued to say they’ve got what it takes to give fans a great time. What they mean is that they’re giving fans plenty of opportunities to go to Great Adventures on game days.

For many it had a certain attraction. I think they call it gravity. -Ronnie Shakes

Kim Kardashian exposed most of her substantial naked derriere to our naked eyes for the first issue of Paper Magazine.

Torture fails to make us safe, but it certainly makes us less free. -Jerrold Nadler

The recently released Torture Report has been criticized in many corners but National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell said it’s a good step in straightening out the league. The only real opposition came from Former Vice President Dick Cheney who felt that rectal feeding of opposing quarterbacks should be allowed during the last two minutes of the game.

Racism hurts everyone, including racists themselves. -DaShanne Stokes

National Basketball Association banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life in response to a leaked recording in which Sterling made racist remarks. On the other hand, 2014 marked the biggest outbreak of unarmed black men mysteriously being murdered…by no one.

There are a few people who truly, truly walk the talk. -Olympia Dukakis

Bill Cosby, Jello and an alleged rapist: Which one doesn’t belong? The second comma.

Momma, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys. -Patsy and Ed Bruce

New Jersey governor sat with Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones during the Cowboy-Philadelphia Eagles game, a game played at the Linc, about a Walt Whitman Bridge throw from New Jersey.

By showing us live coverage of every bad thing happening everywhere in the world, cable news makes life seem like it’s just an endless string of disasters – when, for most people in most places today, life is fairly good. -Gregg Easterbrook

A Malaysia airliner disappeared over the Gulf of Thailand with 239 people on board. We know this because cable news told us 23 hours a day for more than a month.

It’s gotten to the point that the only good reason for reading a newspaper is because it can be extremely helpful in a tedious trivia game.” -Unknown

On January 1 Latvia officially adopted the Euro as its currency becoming the 18th member of the Eurozone.

Happy 69th Birthday Goldie Hawn! The Sexy Star’s Greatest Moments On TV And Film

Happy birthday, Goldie Hawn! Our favorite blonde bombshell turns 69 today and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by taking a look back at her best moments over the decades.

And no — we assure you, that’s not Goldie’s lookalike daughter, Kate Hudson. Yes, Hawn and her daughter, 35, still look a lot alike — even though Goldie is nearing 70. With her feathery, blonde hair and those bright-blue doe eyes, it’s easy to see why.

Hawn originally started her career in dance, quickly landing a role in Disney’s “The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band,” where she met Kurt Russell, who would later become her long-time love. She also appeared regularly on Rowan & Martin’s “Laugh-In” in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It wasn’t long before Hollywood was taking notice of her vivacious, bubbly persona. She went on to win an Oscar for her performance in “Cactus Flower,” and enjoyed other memorable roles in films like “The First Wives Club” and “Private Benjamin.”

But Hawn’s personal life has been just as intriguing as her professional career — most notably, her long-term romance with fellow actor, Kurt Russell. They’ve been together over 30 years — a Hollywood anomaly.

She’s also, of course, known for her bombshell good looks (she posed for Playboy in the ’80s). But earlier this year, she was scrutinized for her appearance at the Oscars — with speculation that she’d gone overboard with plastic surgery.

But we’ll repeat now what we said then, Goldie, we love you just the way you are.

Charles Correa: India’s Greatest Architect

Charles Correa: India’s Greatest Architect


This book celebrates the work of India’s greatest architect, Charles Correa. Born in 1930, Correa is an Indian and international architect who, in a lifetime of achievement, has created work which is consistently beautiful, human and enduring. He played a defining role in the architecture of post-Independence India and has designed some of the most outstanding cultural and civic monuments, science institutes, schools, housing developments and new cities, based on a profound understanding of his country, s history, needs and aspirations. Correa’s work has provided inspiration for future generations of architects at a time of vertiginous population and economic growth in the region. For this, he has received many awards including Britain’s highest architectural accolade, the Royal Gold Medal in 1984. Rooted in India but educated as an architect in the United States and steeped in the modernist teachings of Le Corbusier, Correa has concentrated on the living patterns in communities where he worked, achieving remarkable results with simple but effective means. Tradition and modernity are not opposites for him. Always contemporary, he has subtly layered the history of the land and of ideas in his designs. His sources range from the railway models of his childhood to conceptions of the Cosmos and to street-hawkers’ use of the Mumbai pavements. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated a remarkably consistent approach, guided by a respect for the given conditions, a desire to effect change without forced interference, and a passion to combine fitness for purpose with beauty and spirituality.

Magical Memories: The Greatest Royal Photographs of All Time

Magical Memories: The Greatest Royal Photographs of All Time


A fully updated collection of the very best of Arthur’s delightful color pictures and unique stories, including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the 2012 Olympics, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby In terms of royal photography, Arthur Edwards is a legend. For 30 years, he has captured the most poignant and memorable moments in the recent history of the monarchy. His images range from candid shots to intimate portraits to rare moments when protocol is put aside to reveal the true personalities behind. Princess Diana referred to him as “our Arthur” and Prince Charles introduces him to world leaders when they are on royal tours. He has been on hand to capture the blossoming romance and subsequent wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton; he was there to witness happy and loving moments at the start of Charles and Diana’s marriage; he saw Prince William’s first steps; and he was there for Prince Harry’s first day at Eton. As well as having taken momentous pictures, Arthur has fascinating stories to go with them. For example, the time when Patti Palmer-Tomkinson announced to the assembled press that her “Uncle Harry” would be joining her party–and out stepped Prince Charles wearing false glasses, nose, and moustache. Or in Liverpool when a young lad rode up to Princess Diana and asked for a kiss–and she obliged. It was also Arthur who pointed out to Prince Charles during a polo match that his fly was down–having checked with Arthur that nothing was showing, the Prince then carried on playing. This wonderful book is packed with the magical memories of someone who has been present as history and headlines have been made.

Soccer Player Hit By One Of The Greatest Paper Airplane Tosses Of All Time (VIDEO)

By Jose Martinez, Complex Sports

On Friday, Peru and England squared off in a tune-up match and the star of the night was a paper airplane. We’re not kidding.

As you can see in the above video, one fan decided to toss a pretty large paper airplane onto the pitch in the middle of the game. But what no one, including the individual throwing the object, could’ve ever foreseen was having it actually make contact with a player on the opposing team. That unfortunate honor goes to Hansell Riojas who was decked in the side of the head, much to the delight of the fans at Wembley.

Take a look.
