On the Other Side of the Border

November 10, 2019

The children kept hugging us. They just wanted hugs. They wanted to be seen, to be loved, to feel safe. It’s odd — we teach our children to not talk to strangers, and yet when we entered the Shelter de Leona Vicario they ran to us, grabbed our hands, and wanted to play. My Spanish is limited and their English was non-existent, but they kept telling us their names and ...

'A Doll's House Part 2' Makes Timeless Claims at Summit Playhouse

SUMMIT, NJ – You wouldn’t think a follow-up to Henrik Ibsen’s play about Nora Helmer in 19th century Norway would be especially relevant today.

But the smart, funny sequel by Lucas Hnath has much to say about marriage, the cost of independence, abandoning one’s family and other issues that ring true. When Nora insists that marriage won’t exist in 20 or 30 years, ...

'Romeo and Juliet' Stay Eternally Young at Shakespeare Theatre

No matter how often, or how rarely, you may have seen Shakespeare’s love letter to “Romeo and Juliet,” it still returns with blazing life, in the romantic balcony scene, in the hard lessons we learn about Capulets and Montagues and in the eternal flame of lives snuffed out too soon.

The production at The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in Madison has held audiences ...

Two Minus One Equals Zero?

This past August marked the seventh anniversary of my divorce. Growing up, just like most people, when I envisioned marriage, I saw the “they lived happily ever after” ending. Divorce was not in my frame of reference. My parents were married 56 years at the time of my father’s passing, and my grandparents made it to 72 years. They were my role models of what was to be – ...

Three Steps to Building Self Confidence

How we feel about ourselves dictates the way we live life. It impacts the way we approach just about every thing we do. Yet, sadly, many people struggle to believe in their worth and abilities.

Throughout my life, my levels of self-confidence have ebbed and flowed. Growing up I was an overweight adolescent, which had a significant affect on how I viewed myself. When you’re young, ...

To the Editor,

Fall is on the way, which means the leaves will soon be changing.

But there’s something that never seems to change: overcrowding, delays, and disruptions on New Jersey Transit.
