  • There’s a group of people in North Carolina who call themselves People of the Second Chance (POSC).
    One of the things they do is throw parties -- for people just out of prison, for recovering drug addicts, for misfits, for the discouraged, for the uncelebrated and forgotten, for the overlooked and hurting, for those bowed down with guilt and shame.
    What they do is backwards and upside down. The parties aren’t for the straight A student, the athlete of the year, the one who does things right most of the time.

  • Last Sunday I felt like I was under siege.
    There were starlings everywhere; so much so that I feared being splattered with poop at every turn.

    Apparently, back in 1890, in honor of a Shakespeare festival in New York City’s Central Park, 60 European starlings were released.

    Once autumn leaves have fallen, mistletoe becomes highly visible on large trees throughout Kentucky. Phoradendron, the scientific name for Kentucky’s most common variety of this parasitic plant, means “tree thief”. These small leafy plants are commonly found on twigs and branches of many hardwood species in the southern United States. Mistletoe extracts - steals - water, mineral elements and food from tree hosts; hence the name.
