At the center of every household is a unique and critical equation of work life balance. Here are a few resources for you to consider as you assess your particular work life balance in this New Year.
Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera are, no doubt, artists about whom you have strong feelings. As two of the most prolific, iconic masters of the 20th Century, they need little introduction - adults will likely flock to LACMA's new show because it features famous but difficult-to-see canvases, and pits the two men's career trajectories against one another, revealing surprising parallels.

A spur-of-the-moment trip to the Central Coast can be yours with very little advance planning, and Oh - The Places You'll See! Folks come from all over the world to revel in the delights of our coastline, so it's time to pack the car and head north.
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling dance and sing their way across our city with grace and wit in La La Land, which is easily one of the finest films of the year. Directed by Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), the film first comes across as a triffle, but has a third act with surprising impact. Devoid of cynicism, the unassuming film is an homage to musicals of old and an ode to dreamers - as such, it will steal your heart and should absolutely top your Holiday To Do List

But two weeks ago we headed south for the Longines Master (a Grand Prix horse jumping event) and last weekend we set out to see a play at the International City Theater and took the time to discover the many wonders of Long Beach.
