AddictedAddicted is a real eye opener into the world of sex addiction.  Zoe Reynard, played by Sharon Leal, appears happily married with a gorgeous husband and 2 lovely children. She owns her own company that solicits other companies to display her client’s art work everywhere they are associated. Zoe’s mother, Nina is played by Maria Howell.  As moms go, Nina  is extremely passive and lives with them, playing the role of nanny, because Jason and Zoe have high powered jobs.   Zoe’s husband, Jason Reynard is played by Boris Kodjoe who is an architect who works some late nights but still finds time for the kids.  I found Addicted to be a little slow, up to a point.  Zoe’s excessive sex-capades became too redundant and boring.  Her visits to Dr. Marcella Spencer, played by Tasha Smith, seemed hopeless and only served minimal purpose in Zoe’s life.  For a while, Addicted was interesting but after it was…

Tibetan Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön, best-selling author of When Things Fall Apart, believes that failure is a natural part of the human experience — so we should learn how to do it well. Chödrön began exploring Buddhist teachings after a traumatic divorce to her second husband led her on a search to ease her pain. She learned what to do when your life falls apart: “Fail, fail again, fail better,” she says.

On her upcoming “Super Soul Sunday” appearance, Chödrön joins Oprah for an uplifting conversation about her spiritual journey. In the above clip, she discusses a recent graduation speech she gave at Naropa University in Boulder, Colo.

“I said, ‘I think the most important thing for you kids going out into the world right now is to know how to fail really well,'” Chödrön says. “[Learn] the skill of knowing how to…

Those rhymes I sung
When I was little
Front bells I rung
Before running away
Shouting top of my lungs
Old anthems of brave
Bees who stung
Anywhere I could touch
On those trees we hung
As days passed away
Bit by bit I am losing you all
Memories where art thou
Where else dear old fellow
Just on the tip of your tongue

Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, whose intricate and over-the-top gowns were for years a fixture of the social and political establishment, died on Monday. He was 82.

De la Renta died surrounded by family, friends and “more than a few dogs,” according to a handwritten statement signed by his stepdaughter Eliza Reed Bolen and her husband, Alex Bolen and given to The Associated Press. The statement did not specify a cause of death.

“While our hearts are broken by the idea of life without Oscar, he is still very much with us. Oscar’s hard work, his intelligence and his love of life are at the heart of our company,” the statement said. “

Hephaestus (Roman equivalent: Vulcan), the smith and craftsman of the gods, was married to Aphrodite (Roman equivalent: Venus), the goddess of love and beauty.

It was not a good  marriage because Aphrodite was as an unfaithful wife.

But Hephaestus also cheated her, for example with Athena, the Greek goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature.

Aphrodite most notable lovers were the gods Ares (God of War. Roman equivalent: Mars),Dionysius, Greek God of Wine and Fertility,  Hermes, (Greek God of herds and herald of the gods. Roman equivalent: Mercury), Zeus (King of Gods. Roman equivalent: Jupiter), Nerites (A young Sea-God who was the very first love of Aphrodite). Poseidon (Greek God of the Sea. Roman equivalent: Neptune), and the mortal, Adonis, who was Myhrra’son

Protests Greet Met Opera’s Premiere of ‘Klinghoffer’

At the Metropolitan Opera’s first performance of John Adams’s “The Death of Klinghoffer” on Monday night, men and women in evening attire walked through a maze of police barricades, while protesters shouted “Shame!” and “Terror is not art!” One demonstrator held aloft a white handkerchief splattered with red. Others, in wheelchairs set up for the occasion, lined Columbus Avenue.

Political figures, including former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, joined a rally, several hundred strong at Lincoln Center, to denounce an opera that has become the object of a charged debate about art, anti-Semitism and politics.

But after months of escalating protests, including threats of opera officials and online harassment of the cast, “Klinghoffer” finally went on, only a few minutes late. There were cheers when David Robertson, the conductor, arrived in the pit and a few boos after the opening “Chorus of Exiled Palestinians” ended.
