For my 40th birthday, this year, my mother gave me a diaphanous straw hat and a party to wear it to, a tome about tulips and some clothes for the garden, and Number 260 of the 500 numbered copies of Henry David Thoreau's meandering essay "Of Friendship." Drawn from "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers" and published by Houghton Mifflin at the turn of the century, the book is thin as a pack of cigarettes, gray as the slate of old roof tiles. According to the only stray marks on its otherwise immaculate pages, it was first uncovered in a bookstore window on 7th Street in Washington, already earning, by April of 1946, the time-honored appreciation "rare."

Arian Foster arrived in the NFL almost unnoticed, with a point he was willing to go to great lengths to prove. One of the telltale signs that Foster was well on his way to proving he wasn't the crazy one for believing he could flourish at football's highest level came during a December 2010 game against the Baltimore Ravens. Undrafted out of college, relegated to the practice squad for much of his first professional season, Foster was on his way to leading the league in rushing. During the second quarter of a Ravens victory at Reliant Stadium, All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis cornered Foster to say, "I love the way you play the game.

''Sometimes I wish somebody would use 'Art' as the first initials of the real title: 'A Rough Time,' 'A Real Time,' 'A Real Threat.' " Judd Hirsch is tossing out suggestions for re- titling French writer Yasmina Reza's 1998 Tony Award-winning play. It's true that a painting precipitates the action, but at its core, "Art" is a play about friendship. Specifically, it's about three middle-aged French men whose 15-year relationship is threatened when one buys an expensive all-white, abstract painting, much to the dismay of the other two. Hirsch, who stars in the touring production opening Tuesday at the Mechanic Theatre, admits he didn't recognize the play's broader context when he first saw it, in March 1998.

They stood on the loading dock at Baltimore's Westport Elementary School, two distinct groups, casting furtive glances at each other -- one with elaborate up-do's, burgundy-streaked hair and short 'fros, the other with blond ponytails, glittered eyelids and sporty Ralph Lauren shirts. The latter group -- from affluent Clarksville Middle School -- had never been to the Westport/Mount Winans community, 30 miles away in Southwest Baltimore. The former had ventured into the other's neck of the woods only as far as The Mall in Columbia.

Are you a woman who shares secrets with a male friend? Are you the kind of man who reviews his weekend plans with a female co-worker? Or do you go out for drinks with a colleague of the opposite sex? If you are married and answer yes to any of these questions, then therapist M. Gary Neuman has a word to describe your behavior: Unfaithful. "We can't fool ourselves into believing that we can have intimate relationships at work and still have a great relationship at home," says Neuman. "My message is that if you want to infuse passion and have a buddy for the rest of your life, you have to keep that emotional content in your marriage.
