The never-ending war

An Iliad by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare, not to be confused with The Iliad by Homer, is a one-person, one-act play, and it is as powerful and as intense as anything you're likely to see this year. Peterson and O'Hare's An Iliad will be performed two nights only in

Now that the season has finally begun, with the temperature dropping, the rain (and potentially snow) clouds rolling in, leaves on the ground and an earlier-than-preferred sunset; it's time for the holiday activities to commence!

The autumn and winter seasons are made for eating. It's the law of nature. Biology courses were never my strong suit but I think it's a thing ... right? As the days get shorter, we are trapped in a perpetual darkness, chilled to the bone, and craving for something to

A visit to the tip of the Olympic Peninsula

Heading out to Neah Bay and Cape Flattery is a doable day trip from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, but it is a long one at almost four hours each way. Spending the night on the Olympic Peninsula when it isn't daylight savings time is advisable, as it gets dark so early now.
