Farms in the Valley

Farms in the Valley | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

The Blackstone Valley has always been a farming community. Although it was the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution, the farms have always been here too. People, after all, need to eat and where the ground is fertile and apple orchards thrive, families will farm.

 

Summer has come, right on time. It usually shows up just around Memorial Day and that will be here this weekend. The cows are serene. The chickens and horses are content and peaceful. The corn is coming up green and it looks like a good crop is on the way. Soon we’ll have fresh local produce and our air will be full of the scent of things growing from the earth.

Sharla Shults's insight:

What could possibly be more indicative of the catnipoflife than a visit to the farm? No better place to observe life at its best, listen to life’s songs, embrace life’s bounties, breathe the breath of life and savor life to its fullest!

Why Music Therapy Works

Why Music Therapy Works | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

"For centuries, music has been used to help influence mental health. Nowadays, these observations are being successfully scientifically confirmed. The level of stress hormones in our blood decreases, if we practice listening to relaxing music. It’s also beneficial for people suffering with heart disease to listen to cheerful, happy songs."

Sharla Shults's insight:

Music has tremendous benefits not only for mental and physical health reasons but also in education. Making music involves more than the voice or fingers playing an instrument; a child learning about music has to tap into multiple skill sets, often simultaneously.

Found rest only during winter’s sleep...

The Eyes of Love | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

A grandmother and a little girl whose face was sprinkled with bright red freckles spent the day at the zoo.

What We Learn From Animals

What We Learn From Animals | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

"You may already know that I absolutely love animals. If you didn't, well, now you do. Ha ha, I wish I could just pile them all up in my arms and love them all as pets. I know some would probably try to eat me...but I’ll still love them anyways. I wanted to write about something unique and so I thought it is a great idea to just start writing about what we learn from animals."

Awakenings: MOTHERHOOD--THE OLDEST PROFESSION

Awakenings: MOTHERHOOD--THE OLDEST PROFESSION | catnipoflife | Scoop.it

Motherhood — the Oldest Profession


By Micki Peluso, author of "...And the Whippoorwill Sang"

 

This Sunday mother's throughout the country will be honored in many and various ways. Toddlers and preschool children will cheerfully drag their mothers to their favorite fast food places and older children will escort them, with great decorum, to restaurants with actual dinnerware. The majority of children will serve their mothers breakfast in bed, a calamitous tradition that refuses to die. Adult children with children of their own will have greater reverence for their mothers, graced with understanding and empathy. Mothers will righteously accept the presents, cards, flowers and candy, and promises of exemplary behavior in the future. She has always and will continue to deserve the esteem bestowed upon her by her family on this one honored day of each year.

Awakenings is honored to again feature the prolific writings of Micki Peluso, author of "...And the Whippoorwill Sang."
