    It may sound cheeky , but the worst thing about this Palm Springs eatery is the menu. After all, when everything sounds this enticing, how can you possibly decide what to order?

    Will you have the rainbow chard frittata with fried eggplant wheels? Or maybe you’re more interested in the pumpkin bread pudding French toast. How about the braised short rib hash with crispy skillet Yukon golds and sunny eggs?

    Imagine a quiet place — a sturdy table, a comfortable chair, a tablet of thick paper, brushes and a palette of bright colors. You have cleared your schedule, turned your electronic devices off and all that remains is creative possibility and the rhythm of steady breathing. You are ready to begin.

    Painting is one of the best ways to be present — to be in the moment. Think of it as something as important as exercise. Carve out a few hours each week, during your morning, your evening or on the weekend. You might even schedule a weekly date with your brushes and paper. click for more
