Battery Park City’s annual celebration in New York City is the largest Midsummer Festival in the world outside of Sweden. The Swedish holiday welcomes summer and the season of fertility. Traditionally people make flower wreaths to greet the incoming season, in the belief that they garner nature’s supernatural power. I went to Battery Park City to ask attendees about what is special about Midsummer to them. You can get to our tap story on the @nytimes site in bio. Special thanks to @joannanikasnyc @blumysden for bringing this together!

Portrait of I Gusti Mangku Sasak, a 76-year-old Balinese healer. He considers part of his practice healing mostly local patients, who donate what they can afford in exchange for treatment. “People that come and see me are sick and are already having problems, and if you force them to pay, you make their situation worse,” he said. “And that’s not healing.” Find link in bio for the full story! #bali #usada #healing

I had the great privilege in March to spend time with I Gusti Mangku Sasak, a 76-year-old Balinese healer, and Usada Bali practitioner. I Gusti Mangku is one of about 8,000 healers, or “Bailians,” versed in Usada Bali, the ancient practice of using medicinal plants, oils, herbs and spices, as well as hands-on holistic therapies and ancient teachings, to treat physical and mental pains. He and his family graciously opened their home to me and you can now find the full story online @nytimes (link in bio). #bali #indonesia #usada #healing

A few months ago I couldn’t have imagined I would be sitting on a stage with @astromwallhess @mychivas and @sahiltner doing a Times Talk event, and having a conversation about my dream job. I had really hit a wall creatively and was looking for new direction, and I want to thank @monicadrake1 for her insight and ingenuity that made her create something that I always wished for but never knew could exist. Also I want to thank @joannanikasnyc for being such a crucial piece of the puzzle that is Surfacing, and for making it all come together. I feel very fortunate to be on this journey with all of these great people! #timesevents

My story about the Sai Yong Hong Chinese Opera troupe in Bangkok is now online on the @nytimes site! Thailand the home of one of the world’s largest Chinese communities outside China. Like so much of Chinese opera throughout the world, the performances are a product of a large Chinese diaspora. The audience consists mostly of older Thai-Chinese adults, some of whom take their grandchildren to connect with a cultural memory that has been passed down for generations. As the community ages and audiences dwindle, there is a fear that the art will die out, but that doesn’t deter the troupe’s manager, Tatchai Obthong, “We don’t perform for people, we perform for the gods,” Mr. Tatchai said.
