Members of our group house entered into a discussion recently about a possible decline in morality and social discipline in various Asian societies as a result of modernization. The consensus was that those societies are corrupted by the influence from our advanced economic and social order.
If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm an extraordinarily busy person. I'm constantly trying to balance the myriad components of my work day, the complexities of my home life, and all of my work with social groups. If I didn't create methods of dealing with all of these pieces, my life would completely fall apart.
Many recent discussions of the “end of nature” have stimulated new thinking about our relation with nature. That debate along with our increasing detachment from the outdoors invite reflection on our general cultural orientation toward nature, negative and positive. The way visual artists approach nature may help us develop a more nuanced view of what nature means to us and how we engage nature in our way of life.
It's usually impolite, but sometimes you just feel the urge to brag. I started early when I learned to snap my fingers before my older brother. It’s been twenty-seven years and I haven’t stopped reminding him. Hey, sometimes you have to toot your own horn.

Books can be returned at any DC Public Library. Mark your calendars: The Grand Opening Party is scheduled for Saturday, August 28, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
We're all about early literacy at Watha T. Daniel Library. Through our children's programming, we strive to get children ready to read. It's always thrilling when a child who's been visiting the library before she could talk one day shouts out a number or word she recognizes during story time. We like to think we had a hand in that!
