How’s Your Heart Health?


ebruary is National Heart Month for several reasons. The most familiar is the celebration of Valentine’s Day, but I think of Heart Month as so much more than candy, valentines, and roses.

Kermit Cox, photography class instructor at the Brunswick Center at Southport, found these winter berries while driving through a state park a er a rain. “Rainy days offer even light and rich color from the moist branches and ground cover,” Kermit says. The Buzz believes these berries are those of the common winterberry.

You can think about heart health on the physical plane for its strength, endurance, and ability to power us through the tasks of thought and movement throughout the day. In the emotional realm, it encompasses who we care for and love, our self and others. And in the spiritual aspect of the heart, it includes our beliefs and our sense of place in life and beyond. There are heart-healthy diets and exercise programs for all to explore and embrace. But if you want to dive deeper into a physically heart healthy lifestyle, here’s a good place to start: Mallory Balice, our BSRI Wellness Program Manager, offers nutrition information and guidance on our website, and monthly tips and recipes in the Brunswick Senior Buzz.

easy for some and challenging for many, especially in times of stress and uncertainty like this past year. Our heart and emotional well-being are intimately connected. When we are bombarded with negative states of mind, i.e., depression, anxiety, loneliness, and chronic stress, it affects our heart health. During this pandemic and current world events, we may tend to see things through a filter that exacerbates stress and negativity. I have had to battle with this filter, myself. My way of combating this has been to regularly maintain my gratitude list. You can do this through journaling or mentally at night before retiring or upon waking. I take a few moments to think about my day, week, or overall life and find things that I am grateful for. It can be people in my life, events that occurred or were averted, activities, personal challenges or triumphs, life’s bigs and smalls (like that delicious piece of chocolate I had earlier). I add these to my gratitude pages so I can reflect on them when my filter gets clogged with negativity. Doing this has helped me feel more balanced, appreciative of the gifts that surround me, and it’s reminded me to like and love others (and myself) more deeply. On the flip side, it has also opened me up to feel the pain and loss of important people in my life. I can feel that pain as it passes through my mind, heart, and body, enabling me to acknowledge the love in that relationship. I believe that this is heart health at its healing best. Spiritual heart health is both an individual and collective experience. If you’re connected with a faith community, you can reach out to those beliefs for support, guidance, and inspiration. When I think of my “spiritual heart,” I connect with some basics such as living by the Golden Rule, asking for forgiveness, and forgiving others (and myself, when necessary). I ask the question, “Am I sharing with and giving to those in need?” As we share the month of February, together and apart, my wish for you is that you can do it in a heart-healthy way. I invite you to share in filling your cups with the love, laughter, and music of the beloved Hired Hands Band. Come join us virtually to talk and share on Let’s Chat days.

One way to replenish heart health is to get outdoors in nature, and it’s a safer activity for the pandemic. “It’s the ‘natural trifecta,’” says Supply Center Director Melissa Starr.

Black History Month


Culture and Conservation in Brunswick County By Patti Quilliam


n antebellum plantations stretching along the coast from Pender County to St. Johns County, Florida, enslaved people developed a unique and vibrant culture. In the post-Civil War period, many of these Gullah Geechee people settled in isolated coastal counties. The isolation of these communities contributed to the survival of their folklore, music, arts, crafts, and language. Gullah Geechee culture continues to flourish today, and in 2006 the U.S. Congress established the Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor, a 1300-mile expanse spanning four states, to preserve and celebrate the history and contributions of this culture. Brunswick County, which lies at the northern end of the corridor, is now in the planning stages to develop its own part of the corridor and combine it with the East Coast Greenways Alliance project, whose route overlaps with the corridor.

Take a Walk Through History The concept behind this ambitious undertaking, spearheaded by the local chapter of the NAACP, is to combine recreational space for walkers, hikers, bicyclists, and paddlers with historical sites along the 30-to 50-mile trail from Navassa, along Route 133, to Southport. Brunswick County NAACP chapter president Carl Parker, who traces his Gullah Geechee ancestry back to the 1840s, is enthusiastic about the project. “Folks will learn more than they ever knew before,� Parker says, noting that most people are unaware of the Gullah Geechee roots that lie deep in Brunswick County soil.

A Museum in Navassa The proposed Moze Gullah Geechee Museum and Heritage Center in Navassa will preserve the stories of enslaved people who worked the rice plantations and enable visitors to learn about the role of the Gullah

Black History Month Geechee in Brunswick County history. Parker envisions the museum as a place that will “open a door into historical insight and foresight”—not only where people have been, but where they are going. He foresees that the museum will offer exhibits, demonstrations, and classes in traditional arts and crafts, most of which have faded over time in this area. Perhaps, he predicts, this will lead to a renaissance of the Gullah Geechee culture in Brunswick County.

Numerous sites along the trail will provide a more personal look at Gullah Geechee history. In addition to slave cemeteries and the sites of long-gone rice plantations, the Reaves Chapel in Navassa will be a focus of the trail. Constructed in 1866 by formerly enslaved people and in use until 2005, the Reaves Chapel is one of the most historically significant religious structures in the Cape Fear region. For generations it was the heart of the religious community for African Americans who settled in the area. Several years after it was abandoned, former parishioners formed the Cedar Hill/West Bank Heritage Foundation to try to save the church. They partnered with the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust, who purchased the church in March of 2019 with funding provided by the Orton Foundation. When restoration is complete, the chapel will serve as a site for community events as well as being a legacy to the Gullah Geechee people who founded it. In June 2020, the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution in support of the

project. While the pandemic has slowed many things down, plans are still ongoing. Fundraising is a priority for getting the project off the ground; grant writing and a search for funding from national and state sources are currently underway. Local fundraising efforts such as a proposed festival are being explored for the postpandemic future. Carl Parker acknowledges that the project won’t be completed quickly; each aspect of it will develop over time. One thing is certain: This effort to conserve cultural heritage and protect the environment will add a richer dimension to the many things Brunswick County has to offer residents and visitors.

In the Garden

By Pat Naughton


ebruary is a time to fantasize about this year’s garden. I enjoy looking at newly arrived seed catalogs and hoping that this is the year my garden will look like that. My hopes are seldom fulfilled. Here are few tips to get your garden off to a good start. Discard seeds that are more than three years old. Germination decreases as the seed ages. Generally, seeds older than three years are not viable. You can do an internet search on specific seeds or do a test. To test seed germination, place 10 seeds on a moist paper towel then fold the paper towel over the seeds and place in a ziplock bag. Place the bag in a warm location for three to five days. Then check to see how many have started to sprout. Some seeds may take 10 days to germinate.

Buy seeds that are suited for Brunswick County’s hardiness zone, 8b. I prefer to purchase seeds from local nurseries or order from nurseries in the southeast region. Heirlooms seeds are noted for producing vegetables with better flavor but haven’t been bred for resistance to disease. Hybrid seeds are the product of two different but compatible plants that are crossed by breeders to create a new variety. The goal is to produce plants with traits like early maturity, disease resistance, improved vigor, or a larger yield.

Dreaming about next year’s perfect garden is part of the fun of winter. Get your plants off to a good start with these tips for your 2021 seeds.

You never know what this summer’s conditions are going to be. Some plants do better in hot dry conditions, and some can tolerant wet conditions. Plant a variety of the same crop to improve your chances of having a successful yield no matter what the weather.

Germination begins when seed dormancy is broken. Dormancy can be regulated by environmental conditions such as moisture, temperature, and light. It can also be inhibited by the seed itself. This type of dormancy can be external, seed coat, or internal. Some seeds have a hard coat to prevent water from entering and beginning germination before environmental conditions are conducive to growing. Any process of breaking, scratching, or mechanically altering the seed coat to make it permeable to water and gases is known as scarification.

Seeds such as sweet peas, beans, spinach, and summer squash will benefit from scarification. This can be done with a nail file or sandpaper to nick the coating and reveal the lighter-colored innards of the seed. Soak the seeds overnight. After they swell, immediately plant them in a growing medium. Internal dormancy is regulated by seed tissue. Many vegetable seeds have shallow dormancy, and no special treatment is necessary. Seeds for many perennials need a period of cold moist conditions to break dormancy. This is called stratification.

Start seeds in a fine, well-aerated growing medium. Moisten the medium before planting. After planting seeds, water from the bottom so the seeds are not disturbed. The soil should be moist but not overly wet. Place the TRANSPLANT, continued on page 29

Happy Valentine’s Day

By Joan Leotta


bouquet of red roses is a standard expression of love on Valentine’s Day. However, sending roses at this time of year is usually quite expensive, and it’s not the only floral alternative. A quick perusal of the book A Victorian Flower Dictionary by Mandy Kirk reveals many choices. From Kirk’s notes, I’ve selected three non-rose floral options and two bits of greenery that express love. These are generally available at local florist and supermarkets..

Carnation. This clove-scented ruffle-petaled little bloom has been associated with love since ancient Roman times. It was popular during the Renaissance, when aristocratic couples posed for paintings while holding a carnation. The red carnation is an avowal of strong, passionate love and white signifies that the couple is betrothed. Iris. The iris has also since ancient times symbolized good tidings, which makes this flower a good

accompaniment to a love-filled card. In classical mythology, Iris was goddess of the rainbow linking heaven and earth, a messenger between the two. Her robes, like her rainbows, are colorful, and her message, like that of the rainbow, is hope. Tulip. This flower, a common harbinger of spring in our gardens, was once even more expensive than roses. When tulips were first brought to Europe in the 16th century from Constantinople, they were a rare commodity, and far more pricey than other flowers. In Holland in the 17th century, entire fortunes were made and lost on the tulip bulb. The red tulip signifies passion. Fortunately, today, you can buy red tulips even in the grocery store, without taking out a second mortgage.

Ivy, often used in bouquets in Victorian times, symbolizes true love, great friendship, and fidelity. Many garden shops, florists, and supermarkets offer small potted ivy plants. Rosemary, the herb of remembrance, can be purchased as a plant and grows well outdoors in our climate. A gift of a rosemary

plant, or even placing a sprig of rosemary into a card, says, “Remember me always.”

If your heart is set on giving the red, red rose, then consider these costsaving options:    

A single rose A potted miniature red rose Silk or paper roses, singly or in a bouquet Rose-scented perfumes, soaps, or lotions

Remember, love is for more than one day. Thoughtful deeds for your beloved are the truest loving message we can offer.

Best Bites

By Mallory Balice Wellness Program Manager


n 2020, we faced challenges with the pandemic which may have caused stress. Our everyday routines were at a standstill and normalcy was absent. Even though the pandemic may have caused irregularity, it also brought silver linings. As we look forward to 2021, it’s important to celebrate successes and look ahead for hope. Here are four resolutions we can benefit from in the new year:

Life itself can be flexible. Most of us typically operate with a routine, but the pandemic showed us that things can change fast. Even though things change, keep a mindset that everything will still be okay.

The pandemic was a stressful situation for most of us. Staying positive is essential for being happy. Focus on positive actions to bring happiness to your life and also manifest it to others.

Accepting change is a big step and embracing it allows us to adjust to things easily. The more we deal with change, the easier it will be.

Living the quarantine life, many of us endured by learning new hobbies that we may not have had time to do before the pandemic. Hobbies help us learn new skills and take time for ourselves. Not to mention, it can help distract our minds.

Read All About It

By Donna Ruth Morgan


inter and the pandemic continue this February, so we’re grateful for the company of books. This month we look at books by Black authors, an overview of the planet, and some Western escapism. I first enjoyed Octavia E. Butler’s Kindred when it was released in 1979. Its 2020 reissue brings this genre-bending fantasy/ antebellum historical fiction the attention it deserves as a classic. Time travel, ancestry, and women in slavery are an eclectic, intriguing mix. Nutshell review: The topic of slavery is presented in a unique fashion, but graphic brutality and violence may disturb some readers.

My appreciation for Terry McMillan’s first novel, Waiting to Exhale, made me gladly anticipate her 2020 It's Not All Downhill from Here. The target audience is older women with health and family issues, but these themes unfortunately are repeated ad nauseum. A slow start and rather predictable characters are offset by

the story of survival amid a supporting tribe. Nutshell review: A strong, sassy protagonist makes this a worthwhile read. A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future by Sir David Attenborough (2020) is a semiautobiographical doomsday countdown. The illustrations are grim indictments of how humans have decimated the environment, but the author’s expertise distills complex scenarios into digestible bits. This is a well-researched, easy-to-read narrative about the existential crisis facing us. Nutshell review: Recommendations for sustainability offer salvation for our planet and our species. Just released as a motion picture, News of the World by Paulette Jiles (2016) is a short western set in postCivil War Texas. Historical facts, detailed descriptions of the harsh landscape, and the challenges of the journey create an immediacy for the storyline. The style of not differentiating between dialog and internal thoughts was a bit confusing. Nutshell review: Sloppy editing impacts enjoyment of this evocative story.

You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.

Poetry Corner

If Thou Must Love Me By Elizabeth Barre Browning If thou must love me, let it be for naught Except for love’s sake only. Do not say I love her for her smile—her look—her way Of speaking gently,—for a trick of thought That falls in well with mine, and certes brought A sense of pleasant ease on such a day’— For these things in themselves, Beloved, may Be changed, or change for thee,— and love, so wrought, May be unwrought so. Neither love me for Thine own dear pity’s wiping my cheeks dry,— A creature might forget to weep, who bore Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby! But love me for love’s sake, that evermore Thou may’st love on, through love's eternity.

We had such a wonderful time distributing the Christmas gifts this year for our Senior Stockings!

Why Not Send A Few Valentine’s Card This Year? Do you remember the excitement of Valentine’s Day in elementary school and high school? Remember when you pondered whether to send cute Susie or handsome Jimmy a Valentine’s card, or possibly to write them a secret note to slip unnoticed into their mail cubby? And then on Valentine’s Day, hearts pounded as classmates eagerly checked their mail cubby for cards from secret admirers who were too shy to announce their feelings in person. This year, why not decide to make someone you know feel special on Valentine’s Day? These days, its easy to show your Valentines how much you care. First, stop in your local greeting cards store or pharmacy and look through the selection of Valentine’s Day cards. Look for cards that make you laugh, or that have just the right personal message you want to convey to your Valentine(s). Next, consider whether giving candy or flowers might be the right added touch to underscore your feelings about your Valentine. Finally, take a moment to write a short note inside your card(s) about why your Valentine is special to you. This year, promise yourself to send a card or gift to your favorite Valentine. It will make them feel very special that you made the time and effort to please them, and by remembering your special person it will warm your own heart as well.

Holiday Leftovers– Comfort and Joy In our January issue, we showcased the amazing donations made by the St. James Service Club, No Hungry Child, and our very own Southport sewing volunteer group. Before our holiday break, some Southport Center elves delivered gift cards, food bags and handmade bunnies and bears to more than 50 of our homebound seniors. The reactions were overwhelming, from lots of smiles to tears of happiness. These beautiful gifts and gestures of kindness were well-received by Meals on Wheels participants. The Southport center staff would like to extend a huge thank you to Betty Devins and the St. James Service Club “Cindy’s Angels” for the generous gift cards, Bob Miller with No Hungry Child for the food bags, and Sherry Ross and her group of volunteers, who worked tirelessly on sewing the beautiful bunnies and bears. Also thank you to our amazing community for all of your donations. The smiles these items brought were priceless. Our hearts are full.

container in a plastic bag to keep the soil moist and place away from sunlight. After the seeds have germinated, move the flats to a well-lighted location; the temperature should be 65째 to 70째F during the day and 55째 to 60째F at night. This prevents soft, leggy growth and minimizes disease problems. After the seedlings germinate place them in a south-facing window or under a grow light lamp. The light should be 6 inches above the plant and provide 16 hours of light daily. Plants under these conditions can become long and stringy. To promote a sturdy stem, use an oscillating fan to blow sweeping air across the plants. After the threat of frost has passed, gradually harden off the plants by placing them outside for two hours on day one; six hours on day two; and overnight on day three. After they are hardened off, transplant the plants to the garden and watch your fantasies come true. More information on seed propagation can be found in the NC Extension Gardener Handbook, available at NC State Extension Publications.
