Living La Vie En Rose!

F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "The best of America drifts to Paris. The American in Paris is the best American." I'm pretty sure he could have been talking about the American expat writer,  Sara Lieberman. Sara came to live in Paris almost on a whim, which I think is just the best way to move to Paris. The ...

What’s The Story?

I love stories. I spend a lot of my time either telling them or trying to get others to tell theirs (in 650 words or less) in their college application essays (shameless plug).

700,000 Hours

That's the average amount of time we get to spend on this planet. I don't know about you, but that struck me as not that much. The day I read it, I was sitting on my couch going through the stack of magazines I hadn't read since November, and I could almost hear the clock ...
