Hello, Springtime!

It feels so great to get my hands dirty in the garden with my family again. Replanting the vegetable garden metaphorically and literally....reminds me of simpler times. 

In this newsletter: films, websites, books, fashion, and organizations that I love. It was my birthday Tuesday and I'm feeling very grateful to be alive, for my family, all of you, doing what I love and the things that inspire me. A sampling for this season below.

To the bloom of it all,

Tiffany

ANITA by Freida Mock



We saw this at The Sundance Film Festival last year and found it so powerful...especially in the lens of time. It's so good. - t

from the website:
"ANITA:  Speaking Truth to Power premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013.  Receiving standing ovations at every screening, ANITA is the story of Anita Hill, an American attorney and academic, currently a professor of social policy, law and women’s studies at Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management.  She became a national figure in 1991 when she alleged that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas had made harassing sexual statements when he was her supervisor at the U.S. Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. This film explores her journey during, and since, that pivotal moment in history."

THE GALAPAGOS AFFAIR

GALAPAGOSbreakfast.jpg

Dan and Dayna make great docs and I can't wait to see their latest. - t

from the website:
"Darwin meets Hitchcock in this true-crime tale of paradise found and lost. The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden is a fascinating documentary portrait of a 1930s murder mystery as strange and alluring as the famous archipelago itself. Fleeing conventional society, a Berlin doctor and his mistress start a new life on uninhabited Floreana Island. But after the international press sensationalizes the exploits of the Galapagos’ “Adam and Eve”, others flock there—including a self-styled Swiss Family Robinson and a gun-toting Viennese Baroness and her two lovers. Clashing personalities are aggravated by the island community’s lusty free-love ethos, and when some of the islanders disappear, suspicions of murder hang in the air leaving an unsolved mystery which remains the subject of local lore today."

when: Opens Nationwide April 4

for more details, visit the website.

THE INVISIBLE PEAK: Restoring the West Peak of Mt. Tam

I am a local Mill Valley girl who loves experiencing daily, the majestic beauty of Mount Tam. Let's all help to restore it. - t

from the website:
"Mt. Tamalpais, sentinel peak of the SF Bay Area, is considered sacred by many... native and non-native alike. In 1950, the military bulldozed the highest peak of the mountain to build an Air Force Station tasked with directing jet interceptors and short range Nike nuclear missiles against the potential threat of Russian nuclear bombers. By 1980 the base was obsolete and summarily closed. The military literally walked away from dozens of structures, leaving behind a huge toxic mess on the mountain. Through the use of historical footage, 3D reconstruction, interviews and breathtaking timelapse cinematography, this 20-minute film, narrated and co-written by Peter Coyote, explores the history of Tam's West Peak and how local citizens have been fighting to restore their mountain to a natural state."

for more details, visit The Invisible Peak.

Books & Magazines

 

Thrive

THRIVE by Arianna Huffington

You all know how profound my family's Technology Shabbats have been these past four years and how much I value and think we should focus on being present. Arianna goes deep and wide on this topic in her new book "Thrive." Those of you who want to explore this issue def. read this book. - t


from the website:
"As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success -- money and power -- has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In being connected to the world 24/7, we're losing our connection to what truly matters. Our current definition of success is, as Thrive shows, literally killing us. We need a new way forward."

Thrive by Arianna Huffington on Amazon

Overwhelmed-Breakfast.jpg


OVERWHELMED: WORK, LOVE, AND PLAY WHEN NO ONE HAS THE TIME by Brigid Schulte


Just ordered this book. The excerpt I read in Time Magazine spoke to me on so many dif. levels. It's all about time right? - t


from the website:
"Can working parents in America—or anywhere—ever find true leisure time?

Overwhelmed is a map of the stresses that have ripped our leisure to shreds, and a look at how to put the pieces back together. Brigid Schulte speaks to neuroscientists, sociologists, and hundreds of working parents to tease out the factors contributing to our collective sense of being overwhelmed, seeking insights, answers, and inspiration. She investigates progressive offices trying to invent a new kind of workplace; she travels across Europe to get a sense of how other countries accommodate working parents; she finds younger couples who claim to have figured out an ideal division of chores, childcare, and meaningful paid work. Overwhelmed is the story of what she found out."
