Eric Goode's turtle Ball, Bowery Ballroom, 2013

Eric Goode is hosting an evening to benefit the Turtle Conservancy on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at The Bowery Hotel Ballroom in NYC. I’ve spent many a days and nights at Eric’s compound in Ojai, California, along with his lovely partner, Miye McCullough. I cannot count how many times their Ojai getaway provided a much needed retreat from Los Angeles. Their passion project is called the Behler Chelonian Center, which is devoted to the breeding and preservation of endangered tortoises and turtles. Eric’s story is fascinating and can be read in The New Yorker here: William Finnegan, Letter from Madagascar, “Slow and Steady.”

Resolution 2013

A resolution is the firm determination to do or accomplish something. Sometimes we need a radical change or a disruption to push us out of our comfort zones in order to produce something brilliant. Anthony Burgess, an accomplished musician, was 40 years old when he wrote his first novel, Time for a Tiger. A few years later, Burgess was diagnosed as having a brain tumor and told he had only one year to live. The prospect of death prompted Burgess to write 5 1/2 novels during this “final year” so that he could provide an inheritance for his wife. Fortunately for everyone, one year went by and this diagnosis proved to be incorrect. Burgess is best known for his novel A Clockwork Orange, which was directed by Stanley Kubrick. Burgess created over 50 written works in his lifetime.
