According to motivational author Alan Cohen, “Nowhere is so highly populated that it seems like somewhere. When billions of people agree that illusions are solid, it is tempting to pitch your tent on a swamp.”
How can you make every day count? Helene Stapinski talks about her new memoir, MURDER IN MATERA , a story of ancestry, self-discovery, Italian traditions, and the mystery that lies beneath it all. Since the age of four, Helene heard lurid yet inspiring tales about her great-great-grandmother Vita, a loose woman back in Southern Italy who fled to America in 1892 with her three children after committing murder.

With weather like this, itâs easy to spend oneâs days lazily lounging besides the pool and tanning. For some, this may comprise the whole of their summer plans. However, many Lamorinda teens spend these weeks doing the opposite â interning, traveling, taking classes, and preparing for the upcoming school year.
For example, Noah G., now a senior at Miramonte, is interning at Assemblywoman Joan Buchananâs office for the summer. âI am very interested in learning about how the government works, and this internship will be an opportunity to see this on a more localized scale, so I interviewed a couple of months ago and was accepted. Iâll be spending more time inside than outside in the sunshine!â
Some teens are also taking extended trips to foreign countries. Kacey S. and Meg S. are among a large group of Bay Area students who participate in the Amigos de las Americas program. They travel to Equador and Paraguay, respectively, for eight weeks this summer.
âI am excited to put myself out there and immerse myself in the rich culture of Cotipaxi,â said Kacey, âIâm a little nervous about the isolation, but this is an amazing opportunity to improve my language skills, learn something about myself, and spend time away from home. I really want to get the best out of this Amigos program.â Similarly, Caroline C. is returning to Kenya this summer to aid and teach underprivileged children. Many teens feel that volunteer service trips help them gain an important sense of perspective, and allows them to help others who are truly in need. Caroline found her first trip, taken during her freshman year, to be an enriching experience that she is excited to do again.
Still others are spending the summer frantically preparing for the upcoming school year, through classes at UC Berkeley and DVC or tackling the massive amounts of AP homework. âI have seven books to readâ, explained Ben, âin addition to the textbooks Iâll need to highlight and the college applications that I need to begin. Iâll hang by the pool when I can â but itâs with Pride and Prejudice under my arm instead of any light reading.â
