      Sign-Language As Music, Poetry At NBMAA

      People who have no link to the hard-of-hearing community — no deaf relatives, friends, acquaintances, coworkers — might assume music and poetry have no place in the world of the deaf. Both art forms depend on the ability to hear the sounds of words, and recognize the words’ nuance, rhyming, cadence...

      • Red Wanting Blue To Play Stage One

        Red Wanting Blue To Play Stage One

        Red Wanting Blue has a song about falling in love listening to Jeff Buckley sing Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah.” It’s probably something that a lot of listeners can relate to. The Ohio band has plenty of songs about love but often they’re about the pain of drifting apart or trying to repair...

        Après-Ski: The Fun Begins When The Skiing Ends At These New England Destinations

        Ooh, la la. It’s hardly a surprise that it’s the French who coined the term, “après-ski” considering they’re among some of the first Europeans to have widely embraced the sport back in the 1900s. “After ski,” as it translates, describes the imbibing, merriment, and social activities that follow...

      • When It's All About The Hotel, Not The Destination
