Sweet 16 ... and a Runway Model
NYTimes - over 4 years
New York Fashion Week has just ended, and the stream of photos from the runways shows 16-year-old girls modeling very adult designs. Last winter new guidelines stipulated that 16 was the minimum age for girls to walk the runways. There's even a summer modeling camp for teenagers. In other parts of the world like Siberia, 13-year-olds are modeling, as a recent Op-Doc demonstrated. Considering the nature of the business, which includes the pressure to be thin and can exploit young and beautiful girls, should the age limit for modeling be higher?

Carre Otis: In the Face of Change
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Over a month ago my family and I embarked on a major move. We headed from our 4-year Rocky Mountain family retreat back to the California coast and Redwood forest that is my birthplace. There were many factors that went into the decision making process but the biggest one that trumped all was educational options for my daughters. We all want the best for our kids. But often times the decisions that bring about radical change can be hard ones, both to make and to execute. When our daughters Waldorf style preschool discontinued their 'grades' program my husband and I took one look at each other and knew it was time to have a talk. We knew there would be unique challenges living in a small mountain town and we truly felt thankful for the promise the school held for us. When its doors closed, however, we both understood we needed to look at alternative options. Over our weekly 'date night' dinner out and catch up session we began the conversation of, "Where next?" There come ...

Carre Otis: Flexibility, Inside And Out
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Flexibility is not just about the external. As we age, developing inner flexibility is just as important. Over the past six years, my yoga practice has taken many forms. When I consider the deeper meaning of yoga, I realize it's about a lot more than simply performing a variety of postures on a mat. Yoga has a rich history, and it carries a different meaning for each yoga practitioner. There are different poses, different inner and outer practices, and different interpretations of how each style can influence both body and spirit. There are DVDs, group classes and yoga retreats. But I would assert that despite the wide variety of yoga options and individual preferences, there is one universal element: the union of consciousness and movement, breath and awareness. This union gives way to the wonderful connection between mindfulness and activity, a practice of being present, regardless of what we're doing in the moment. This "doing" may be crow pose, a deep breath, or simp ...
