As DeMaio’s inaugural solo exhibition at Sacred Gallery, I Walk The Line features over 20 monochromatic paintings and drawings, marking a departure from his former vibrant pop culture-filled canvases. By restricting his color choice to black, white and silver, DeMaio focuses on the strength of his line and detail in the worlds he creates. Using sources from anatomical drawings in Grey’s Anatomy to studies of ice cream cones, DeMaio fills these realistic figures with playful, swirling and surreal objects from skulls to clowns and crosses.
It has always bothered me that aging in America is viewed as a downward spiral… and a repulsive one at that! It’s no wonder that the younger set clamored for Betty White to appear on Saturday Night Live. Her life-loving, bubbling energy, at 90, is an inspiration for men and women of every age. She's living proof that aging doesn’t have to take away beauty, vitality and, yes, sexuality!
Does the Boomer Generation, along with women in their 20s', 30’s, 40’s and up hate the prospect of aging? You bet they do! As generations of women see themselves gaining weight, having less energy, getting sick, weak and sexless, they are panicking…with good reason.
PEPSICO, INC. has announced that it is removing a dangerous chemical from its popular sports drink, GATORADE. This is particularly good news because it represents their yielding to public protests. “Rumblings” from consumers condemning the presence of a known toxin—bromated vegetable oil—forced their decision to discontinue its use.
Jon Fosse’s "A Summer Day" is an enigmatic play, weighty, with repetitive dialogue and portentous glances. It is like a live Bergman film, a grim Scandinavian drama with mysterious overtones written to be purposely vague. Fortunately, Mr. Fosse, a Norwegian, has been translated and directed by Sarah Cameron Sunde and acted by six talented actors, led by Karen Allen making a remarkable return to the New York stage.
Many women complain when they see older men going out with girls young enough to be their daughters. They resent that so many successful men choose to shed their wives after long marriages and find themselves a trophy wife or “arm candy” girlfriend. I’m actually okay with what these guys are doing. Anyhow, considering the age of my guys, complaining about them would be hypocritical.
That title is obviously about sex and aging. Yes, frequent, satisfying sex no matter how “old” you are! I should know. At 76, I have maintained my sexuality, despite society's disdain for the desirability of older people.
Eggs have been getting a bad rap, particularly by drug companies that make statins. They want to frighten us into avoiding one of the best, and cheapest sources of protein, and brainwashing us with false information about the dangers of cholesterol.
Does the Boomer Generation, along with individuals in their 30’s, 40’s and up fear the prospect of aging? You bet they do…and with good reason. As generations of Americans see themselves gaining weight, possessing less energy, developing illness, and losing the attributes of youth, they are panicking, wondering if there is any way to turn this horrid scenario around.
