Re: “Parting Ways: Navigating Family After Parents Separate

Thank you for your article. Empowering, liberating, and normalizing for prioritizing the kiddos in the process.

Re: “A Montgomery Salt Cave Might Heal What Ails You

Going to the Salt Cave is such an experience! The owners are willing to talk to you about any of their items that they are selling and how to use them, what they are good for, and why you should be using them. The Detox room is great for those cold winter days, you sit in adjustable comfy chairs and put your hands and feet on the warm salt rocks. And OMG the cave itself; as soon as you walk in you can taste the salt on your lips and immediately I can breath deeper. It is a MUST experience. After the first time you go, you will be hooked! and telling all your friends!

Re: “Another Holiday Passes, and No Proposal

This describes my situation nearly to a T, minus the "He talks about getting married all the time..." bits. In my case -- speaking as the reluctant boyfriend -- it isn't simply a matter of money precluding nuptials, but some strong, unresolved issues in the underlying relationship that won't go away simply by one party proposing. Unmet needs and unresolved traumas co-conspiring to prevent either party from experiencing true happiness or fulfillment in each other's arms.

That, of course, runs up against societal expectations of where one *SHOULD* be at that point in a relationship.

But should one get married simply because social norms dictate that it's the thing to do? It would seem more prudent to hash things out before the fact than to simply slide into marital malaise and deal with the divorce courts later on down the line.

All of which is to say, it's not always so simple as just popping *THE* question when it may be one among many in need of an answer.

Re: “Trying Yoga on for (Plus) Size

I love the "floating head." It wasn't until I practiced yoga and meditation that I could actually "feel" my legs. Great article!

Re: “A Montgomery Salt Cave Might Heal What Ails You

I love the Salt Cave. I have been twice. Trying to go every other week. My breathing is so much better and I sleep very well. The Khans are very nice people. I highly recommend.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Public expressions are opinions and not invitations for debate. Outlaw "frivolous or silly or not normal" expressions and you make us all pirates and I don't want to be a pirate.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Albert how do you know I'm not a woman. Just because I don't agree with the actions these women are taking does not make me misogynistic, it just means that I don't think their action will result in any real change in our country. Also try tell the Democrats voting never changed anything. Everyone in this country the exercised their right to vote for Trump proved that voting can change things. But I not sure why I'm telling this to a self described anarchist you have already given up on the American political process I'm sure.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: 2016 Census Data Reveal Most Vermonters are Subarus

This is pure BS. Toyota FJ-40s have been lurking in the shadows for years doing the jobs that Subarus won't do. Everybody knows it but no one wants to talk. It is evident if you just count their siblings and all their distant relatives that snuck in while Shumlin was covering for them. Most have last names like Tacoma and Tundra. I tell you, this has gone too far. Time for action!

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Election time surely does bring out the crazies. And another day goes by.. Incredible how time continues to pass, and how the world, despite all things political, manages to keep on spinning. Miraculous really. Keep breathing people, this is not the end, and could very well be the beginning of something not fuled by hate at all, but by justice, in a way we've never yet experienced. Time will tell. Until then, lets all try to be more focused on loving the people around us, rather than fearing the ones you only know through television PROGRAMMING.

Re: “Playtime: Chance McNiff, 'thoughts count'

Chance creates a life rhythm that enchances our prespectives. I had a few pictures of the Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Massachusetts that were just static by themselves. When l combined one of Chance's tracks to the video, the plain became majestic and mysterious. see for yourself at youtube..Also the art work by Ms. Jewett is the portal into the realm where Chance resides.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Citizen.............we anarchist like to say that if voting ever really changed anything then the capitalist class would have outlawed it long ago. By suggesting that these women "take off their dish gloves" and put their "big girl panties' on you not only reveal your women-hating misogyny but your ignorance of the role of protest in the United States. On MLK day, reflect on how immoral this country has been from genocide against Native Americans to slavery to Hiroshima to Vietnam to Jim Crow to Black Lives Matter to Standing Rock, ad nauseum. Read a book instead of lecturing people with your limited range of understanding and vile value system

And by the way Beyonce is no feminist she is still married to a man that has cheated and probably still cheats on her. She sounds like a real strong woman to me. NOT.

Hey good luck with your protest. In 4 years when the sky has not fallen and the world is a safer place due to President Trump be sure to stop protesting long enough to vote.
