  • Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and if you are like the millions out there, you are scrambling to get ready for family coming over, a trip, or making plans for a meal. And if you get a moment’s pause in the midst of the frenzy to reflect on giving thanks, you might, like many others, be looking for some major or significant occurrence within the year that compels thanksgiving.

  • Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.

    Dear God,
    Here I am again, my 17th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithful kindness and goodness to me.
    Lord, you and I have walked together for nearly 40 years, and even when I’ve strayed from the path, you’ve never left my side or dropped hold of my hand, even for a moment.

  • It feels like we are solidly in another Indian Summer, which always reminds me of an old print my father had hanging in his office: two juxtaposed images of a young man and his grandfather around a small bonfire.  
    As the scene turns to night, the smoke that arose from the fire reveals an image of dancing American Indians, the hay stacks in the distance become teepees and the verse that accompanies the print reads like a tale from a not so enlightened time. “Yep, sonny, this is sure enough Injun summer. Don’t know what that is, I reckon, do you?”

  • Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid?
    Well, it is all about flower parts. In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.  For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals.  
    Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside which cradles the bloom as it opens.  
    You will understand this nuance if you have ever observed the slow transformation of an opening bloom.
