  • The beach house - Read On
    paying mind to a clock letting the sultry light of the Carolina sun dictate their days She d heard that back in 1989 Hurricane Hugo had turned the island upside down But she hadn t imagined the extent that time could alter a landscape This used to be a sleepy island town with a grocer liquor and hardware store clustered together beside a small stretch of postcardish islandy restaurants Ocean Boulevard was but a line of modest beach cottages across from a wide stretch of sand dunes that rolled lazily along the ocean So it was all the more shocking to see that the dunes she d played on were gone paved flat for a row of mansions that formed a wall of pastel colored wood blocking the view of the sea and dwarfing the once oceanfront cottages across the street These beautiful new post Hugo houses stood even closer to the water s edge as though arrogantly daring the heavens to strike again Cara could turn her head left then right as she drove and see in turn an eerie picture of pre and post Hugo worlds Still some things never changed she thought as she spied a line of pelicans flying overhead looking like a squadron of bombardiers on patrol She opened her window to the balmy island air and breathed deeply Dusk was setting in and with each moist breeze she felt a page of her history flutter back recalling the days when she was young and pedaled this road on her bicycle feeling the wind toss her hair like streamers behind her She drove another two blocks south scanning Her breath caught in her throat when she saw it Primrose Cottage As pale a yellow as the delicate evening primroses that surrounded it the 1930s beach cottage sat back from the road perched on a small dune In contrast to all the meticulously landscaped properties of the newer mansions her mother s house appeared as a wispy memory of the past glowing in the twilight among waves of tall grasses brilliant pink phlox and yellow primroses for which it had been named Although a bit wind worn the old frame house with the low spreading roof and the wide welcoming verandas seemed as indigenous here as the palmetto trees It had been twenty years since she d laid eyes on this house So many years since embarking on the journey from little girl to middle aged woman Pulling up to the curb to stare it occurred to her that while she d been busy with her life in Chicago oblivious to the goings on of the island this charming little house was here patiently waiting for her She shifted into gear and slowly drove around the block to the back of the house pulling into the winding gravel driveway careful when the wheels dug past the thin layer of gravel to hit sand She released a short laugh to see the old shiny gold VW convertible

  • The cure for everything untangling twisted messages about health, fitness, and happiness - Read On
    smile told me she knew I wasn t likely to agree with her optimistic knowledge enhancement prediction We need to cleanse our bodies the instructor said Just like a car we need to clean our bodies to make sure they work properly so we don t get diseases like cancer and diabetes By cleansing our bodies we will be come more fit and our metabolism will increase and we will lose weight especially in all those tough spots the arms the belly and the bum She pointed to the relevant region of the body as she said arms belly and bum The last got a laugh from the crowd They were captivated Some were writing notes as she explained the details of detoxification I knew that absolutely every statement she made was either incorrect or misleading Complete crap We don t need to detoxify and cleanse our bodies Detoxification will not result in weight loss You cannot make a particular part of your body lose weight by consuming algae which was her recommended remedy for the elimination of flab It was however an amazing performance a mix of pseudoscientific jargon faith healing proselytizing and over the top fear mongering Some of her claims were so absurd that I had to suppress a laugh For example she informed the crowd that if you eat meat and don t cleanse on a regular basis i e irrigate your bowels the lower colon gets clogged with an immovable thick mucus y sludge This sludge apparently causes a host of ailments and many of us are carrying around as much as ten pounds of this disgusting substance Some of her other claims infuriated me because of their simplistic inaccuracies especially those that concerned serious diseases She told the audience her grave tone reinforced by scientific looking diagrams and terminology that the toxins in deodorants cause breast cancer Nonsense At the end of the talk came the sales pitch Do you want to be healthy You can t blame aging the instructor informed us all You can only blame yourself You must take control and detoxify your body An acidity and toxicity assessment costs forty dollars Isn t your health worth this much Coincidentally a host of detoxifying products and processes would be available for sale after the assessment As soon as the talk ended everyone in the room it appeared lined up to get detoxified And who can blame them Despite my deep skepticism I understood the urge to jump to the head of the line Who wants sludge in his colon Detoxifying sounds like a sensible idea Don t toxins cause disease And while the fat melting algae potion was a bit far fetched much of her presentation seemed grounded in some kind of science She was offering a path to better health I want to be healthy This book is about health More particularly it is about the science as sociated with health As the detoxifying dominatrix demonstrated there is a considerable
