THE PANDEMIC OPENS PORTALS OF CLARITY

2021-09-29T17:14:58-04:00

Photo by Pedro Lasta By Maria Sylvester, MSW, CPC Dear reader: If I were to guess, I’d bet that the experience of the pandemic has shed new light some aspect of your one truly precious life. It’s a present worth unpacking. Let me untie the ribbons of this unexpected gift for you here. Clarity is, by definition, “the quality or state of being clear.” Clarity is the direct manifestation of our being in full alignment with ourselves. It’s the result of a lot of momentum with no resistance. To me, clarity signifies inspired right action following deep reflection. Gaining clarity is [...]

WHO WANTS TIGHTER AND CLEARER SKIN?

2021-09-29T17:18:55-04:00

Photo by Kim Carpenter By Lisa Profera MD The answer to clearer and tighter skin with zero downtime is here!  I’m so excited about the latest radiofrequency (RF) technology. It non-invasively produces visible results without surgery. Everyone wants younger and clearer skin, but most people don’t want surgery or a significant recovery period. Most (about 80%) of aesthetic services performed these days are non-surgical, and many techniques are getting better to meet the growing demand. People want to see results, but they don’t want to take time off from work or from their busy lives to get those results. We have [...]

PLAY LEADS TO CLARI-TEA

2021-09-29T17:54:51-04:00

Photo by Peggy Anke By April Lynn James, PhD It was during my doctoral studies at Harvard that I first began to take play seriously.  Some two decades ago, I was working my way through what I lovingly call “boot camp for the intellectually inclined.” Like many graduate students, I spent an awful lot of time sitting in libraries and at desks typing at computers. Often these desks and tables were placed at a height conducive to poor ergonomic habits, which means that one winds up sitting in unhealthy positions for hours on end. One day while typing in my usual [...]

BUILDING A HANDMADE TREASURE WITH JILL DAMON

2021-09-29T17:36:17-04:00

Photo by John Sobczak By Marji Wisniewski Having recently visited 16 Hands in Kerrytown, I was excited to interview the owner, Jill Damon. Her shop is bright, colorful, and filled with artistic creations; any one of them could be the perfect gift for a special person or to treat yourself. What I didn’t know until meeting Jill is that she’s not only a business owner, artist, and Townie, but also an Ann Arbor treasure just as special and unique as the art in her shop. A Hippie Finds a Home I learned about 16 Hands for the very first time in [...]

HISTORY OF THE VIBRATOR: WE’VE COME A LONG WAY

2021-09-29T17:49:04-04:00

Photo by Womanizer Toys By Alice Queen I often find myself wondering what my life would be like if I had been born fifty or a hundred years earlier. Watching both my mother (to a lesser degree) and my grandmother (to a higher degree) suggests that my life would have played out very differently. But then, when I look back at the feminist movement, there’s no doubt that many from that generation made the kind of life I live possible, including the privilege of being able to enjoy my sexuality as an independent person. One of the most significant changes, I [...]
