    A Conversation with Daniel Maté

    YS talks about Gaza, the upcoming election, music, and childhood trauma in a wide-ranging interview Being in local, independent journalism is not an easy feat these days. My days are filled with more work than play, but at least the work is of great value to me. While I read enormous amounts of news, white papers, and media articles and absorb documentaries for my Friday night escape, the time to sit down and read a book was stolen years back. Despite my lack of carving out time to read a good book, I have been a fan of the Maté

    A Friend

    Amidst political cacophony it is particularly important to still the mind and open oneself to beauty and the interconnected strands of life around us. I had such an experience this week. Among my daily mountain bike rides, several each week pause at a small waterfall. The waterfall is not steep or high and decidedly mundane, particularly in that it is man-engineered.

    Jacquelynn Perkins’ solo show, Self-Portraits of My Sisters & Andrea Dratch’s accompanying film & performance piece, Shame on Me premiered at downtown Loveland’s artworks on April 12, 2024. “We had these girls in the mirror and we would sit and talk to them. They looked just like us and they were sisters.” Artists and sisters Jacquelynn Perkins (43) and Andrea Dratch (41), who were born in Denver and Longmont, sit in Perkins’ Loveland studio in overstuffed, red chairs discussing their art opening on April 12th. And more specifically, the journey that landed them here. Perkins’ studio is almost unrecognizable to
