Life is a cabaret, old Chum… What a fantastic song. What a fantastic truism.Going to the theater is so exciting because it fuels our mind, heart and body. The thrill begins in our minds as we book our tickets, and anticipate the event. Our entry into the theater kicks the excitement into high gear physically, often causing a little burst of adrenaline which helps our minds focus on the moment rather than the real world outside.

Springtime brings a wonderful combination of new growth and old traditions. At Darling Way, we are working hard to update a beautiful old cottage and make her our home soon. In the meanwhile, as the ancient holiday of Passover approaches, young children everywhere are preparing to ask the four questions. Because we love the tradition of inviting questions, thoughtful answers and subsequent discussion, we prepared our own Darling Way version of the four questions.
