s I write this, some leaves are just starting to fall while others are just starting to turn into those warm colors that say autumn is finally here. Birds are falling into formation and heading south. Pumpkins are showing up in stores and in roadside stands. Once again I am reminded of the rhythmic nature of the universe. It is good to be reminded; it slows me down for a moment while I take a deep breath, in and out, imagining the waves in the ocean. Now if I can just remember to do this when I get stressed out about something! If you have a favorite way to de-stress we would love to hear about it. Find us on Facebook or send your story in, maybe we can share it with our readers in our "Mindful Moments" section. We have several fans of crocheting and knitting so far and look forward to some upcoming articles on other ways to use activities in mindful ways that help promote the calm and peace our busy lives seem to be yearning for. It is also that time of year for a little spookiness. We have added a couple of spooky stories and some fun trivia questions for you to enjoy. Again, we would love to hear from you. If you have a favorite "spooky" story our Facebook page is there for you to share it. Until next time...

• Vision – As we age, less light is able to reach the retina, causing reduced contrast sensitivity. This can make curbs nearly invisible, and may make some clutter or obstacles very difficult to detect. Be sure to have regular check-ups and a current prescription.

Tips and tricks on everyday issues you or a loved one may be facing. By Janet Sander, COTA/L

Understanding Fall Risks

• Medications: Are you having trouble remembering to take medications or experiencing any side effects? Some prescriptions, as well as overthe-counter medications, can cause dizziness, dehydration or interactions with each other that can lead to a fall. Have a family member do a review of all medications taken, as doctors can overlook possible interactions.

Why do older people fall? Understanding why older people fall can help you or a loved one to be safer. Of course not all falls can be prevented, but the good news is that most of them can be if you take steps to reduce the chance of falling. Here are some common factors that can lead to a fall:

• Chronic conditions: According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) more than 90% of older adults have at least one chronic condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis or arthritis. These often increase the risk of falling because they result in lost function, inactivity, depression, pain, or the complications of multiple medications.

• Environment – Fall prevention should start with creating a safe living space. The usual recommendations to lower fall risk are a good place to start: installing grab bars in the bathtub/shower and sturdy handrails on stairways and even hallways; keeping a well lit house; not using throw rugs; keeping paths clear of electrical cords and clutter; and only wearing rubber-soled shoes are all important in reducing the chance of falling.

falling, and what they fear becomes more likely. Be aware of falling but don’t fear it. Make it a point to stay in shape!

• Buy a cordless phone so that you don’t have to rush to the phone when it rings. Carry it with you from room to room, so you can quickly call for help if you need it. Or carry your cell phone and keep it charged.

FLOWING to Well-being (continued)

he recovery model developed in the book Unkind Gifts: An Insider’s Guide to Recovery from Trauma and Loss is represented by an acronym that spells out the word FLOWING. Last time we considered the letter F for feel, so this entry will focus on the letter L for listen. We might think that listening is merely a function of our ears, but in this case, the effort is more about our internal awareness and has to do with engaging and receiving meaning from any of a variety of sources. The best approach to internal listening is found in the practice of mindfulness. By settling into a calm, undistracted state we find opportunity to truly engage with the meanings and memories that tend to flit through our minds in seemingly random ways most of the time. During mindfulness practice, rather than grasping onto or fighting to push away those emotions and sensations, we create the space to be with our experiences. From our starting place of feeling what happens with our

bodies and our emotional states, we can gently hold those physical/emotional cues with curiosity to discover deeper meanings learned within the stories held there. For instance, we may have a general sense that a childhood classmate was a bully, and we did not enjoy being around them, but if we can engage with the tightness in our gut that arises when we think about running into that person at the school reunion, and take the time to learn more about it, we may be quite surprised. The sort of listening that is suggested in the model can take any one of several forms; we might SIFT through the information available by attending to sensations, images, feelings and thoughts to discover deeper elements of meaning. In reference to the bullying example above, the tightness in the gut might remind us of the empty feeling when our lunch money was taken, or an image of the teacher’s angry face at the missing homework assignment due to it having been dropped in a puddle when the bully dumped our backpack. As we take in whatever initial signals arrive in response to our curiosity and engagement with the internal part to whom we are listening, we might get further information about the deep sense of vulnerability we had when we needed to take the long route to the schoolyard to avoid getting caught by the tormentor, and perhaps that it represented only one small part of the struggles going on in our life at that point. These contextual elements of the otherwise isolated seeming loss can lead to understanding and even to the creation of connections between the neurons in our brains and bodies. Those multiple connection points will allow experiences of loss to become absorbed and integrated, rather than remaining disconnected and pulling energy away from more balanced functioning. The advantages of a mindfulness practice are more than just clarifying the context and meanings within old hurts. Such practices also help to build resources for coping with past as well as future disruptions to our sense of safety and well-being. Regular mindfulness practice has been found to decrease anxiety and depression, to raise the level of baseline happiness, and to improve pain management. We so often find our-

selves on a treadmill of endless tasks to be completed, and comparing ourselves to others in unflattering ways. Mindfulness practices can take many forms but virtually always involve stepping back from those pressures to learn to tolerate discomfort, and to appreciate what we have in the moment. Generally, there is a focus on breathing as the object of meditation, which offers increased oxygenation to the body and slows the heartbeat to a more natural rhythm. These physical changes decrease stress levels and reset the baseline to a more receptive state. As we listen to the deeply held burdens of our experiences of loss, we may develop a better understanding of the complexities of our lives, and be in a position to offer ourselves compassion and soothing. Those attitudes go far toward healing the disruptions and selfdoubts that may have been carried from those early days. Our perceiving adult, Self can offer a supportive response to victimized or traumatized child parts, effectively encouraging them to release and become more in tune with present day life. This attitude shift may bring a whole new level of energy and competence to our adult functioning, and even extend to a new sense of compassion for others. We might even begin to grasp the pain that was indicated in that schoolyard bully’s behaviors, and to see that they were only acting-out the confusion and pain of their own situation. Perhaps we’ll even find ourselves anticipating seeing our former nemesis again at the reunion in the hope that they, too, have found a peaceful resolution to their struggles. This kind of open-hearted response can arise from listening to our own deeply held meanings, and will be the subject of the next entry in this series of essays on FLOWING to Well-being. Ellen C.

Food for Thought Visiting A Paw-Paw Festival September 16-18, 2016

T

By Julia Stevens

he idea started with a 2015 Midwest Living Magazine story about an Albany, Ohio festival celebrating the tasty fruit that I first sampled as a child. Paw-paw trees are native to America and grew beside the 100 foot vertical rock bluff behind my childhood home at Modoc, Illinois, about two miles from the Mississippi River. I personally enjoy the paw-paw's flavor, which has been compared to a combination of mango and banana. When the fruit is ripe, the green, topor bottom-heavy, rounded-on-bothends fruit softens and is very perishable. The skin turns a light yellowish color, possibly with dark spots, somewhat like a ripe banana, and the flesh inside is yellow-gold with rows of flat brown seeds that resemble the size and shape of butterbeans. It had been a long time since my last taste of pawpaws, about 50 years, when, on the date of September 8, I spied some trees with ripe fruit growing in the wild along the country road, again in the Mississippi River valley, where I regularly walked, and I had a mini paw-paw feast. Fast forward another 15 years without a sample of paw-paws and I was ready for the 2016 festival a year after first discovering it existed. Just to work up a good appetite, and to get some exercise after the 12 hour ride from home to the festival, I had registered for the Saturday 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk (rather than the 4 Mile Run because I couldn't handle that much exercise). I was looking forward to the 2016 Paw-Paw Festival official run/ walk t-shirt that featured paw-paws and a huge reclining fly (a paw-paw

pollinator I wouldn't normally want to promote but found acceptable because of it's important role in producing paw-paws). Unfortunately, the t-shirts got lost in transit and didn't make it to the festival in time, so I look forward to receiving the shirt in the mail. Joining in on the 1 mile run/walk was a person dressed as--what else--a giant pawpaw. A hard rain before the event made the path through the paw-paw tree-filled woods (with, unfortunately, no visible paw-paw fruits) a little tricky to travel, and a few participants wore quite a bit of mud on their shoes and clothing at the finish line, but they probably arrived, as I did, with their appetites ready for paw-paw treats. We were greeted at the finish line with delicious frozen paw-paw popscicles with natural flavors of cherry or strawberry. Since the run/walk event was early, there was time to take in lots of interesting things happening on the festival grounds, including atlatl spear throwing with instructions from an international champion and musical groups. There were also friendly, informative, and engaging vendors, who featured such things as American Indian flutes in many keys; hand-dyed alpaca yarn and other alpaca products and a very tame alpaca to touch; sorghum molasses being processed and cooked on site; beautiful handmade jewelry and herbal salves, just to name a few. The festival's emphasis was on sustainable practices and included talks on many ways to accomplish that goal. A "tractor" of very simple and lightweight construction ran on a small battery and hauled festival-goers around on a wagon with hay bale seating. While strolling around the grounds and checking out the goodies, I saw ripe paw-paws, jars of paw-paw jam and sauces, and lots of paw-paw baked goods. Many of the food trucks offered menu items that included paw-paws. The fresh paw-paws were as good as I

remembered. Paw-paw fruit, zucchini and chocolate chips were ingredients in wonderful tiny cakes. My conclusion after trying paw-paws in a variety of ways was that the best palate pleaser for me was still the sweet, plain paw-paw. This peaceful, diverse, multi-cultural, delightful event offered food for the mind, body and soul, and entertainment for all ages. It focused on improving our world by practicing responsible lifestyles, conserving, reusing and recycling, and it demonstrated to me that learning new practices, planning for, and teaching future generations can be most enjoyable. P. S. Reportedly, paw-paw fruit was President George Washington's favorite dessert.

Pour mixture into re-purposed individual serving yogurt containers or sturdy microwaveable plastic drink cups wider at the top than at the bottom (because freezing will expand the mixture and may break a straight-sided container). Lids are unnecessary. Freeze serving size containers. The refrigerator's freezer door shelf works well. To serve, microwave an individual frozen smoothie for 30 to 45 seconds, as desired, or set out at room temperature until a spoon will scoop it out. Enjoy!

CONDO AT LAKE OF THE OZARKS

By Paul Arseneau

Can you imagine a movie nowadays without music? I can not because some of my favorite movies also include some of my favorite music. Music and movies have always worked hand in hand. When silent films first came out they were always accompanied by live music. Whether it was a lone piano/ organ or even a full orchestra, the makers of those early movies felt it was important to add sound to the experience, likely to compete with musicals and the opera. The raw emotion that each medium evokes creates a unique atmosphere for the audience. Unlike musicals, which can have breaks in the music so the audience can hear the actors, movies tend to have a constant musical soundtrack. Silent films also had the obvious distinction of the viewer reading the dialogue as opposed to operas where all the dialogue is sang. The goal is to fill the brain with both visual and auditory stimuli, to help capture the viewer’s attention

throughout the entire film. Music also gives clues to how the viewer should respond to different characters or revelations within the film. A somber tune will help to show the despair the characters are experiencing, or a light and cheery tune can set the atmosphere of a light hearted journey. These cues can help the viewer become immersed within the story itself and add context to the characters without extra dialogue. There have been exceptions where certain directors or genres try not to have a musical score, such as movies designed to be like plays, where there may be no music. So the next time you watch a new movie, pay attention to the score, you may want to find the movie soundtrack for the listening pleasure of the music without the movie. Movie sound tracks often have a distinct tone. The sum of the parts being much more than just a collection of songs.

Creatures in the Night By Melissa Arseneau

t first, that night was just like any other. I worked a long shift and made it home around 2 am. I got my dogs fed and watered, changed out of my uniform, and headed out to the front deck to relax under the stars. While gazing up, I caught a shadow out of the corner of my eye. I sat up slowly in my old wooden rocker, trying not to let it creak. The only light I have spills from around a slight curve in a road that is otherwise blocked by trees. I had turned out all the house lights so I could see the stars. It was pitch black out here in the woods that night. Besides that bit of light from afar, there are only acres upon acres of dark forest. I started looking in the direction I had noticed the shadow. There, up the drive a way, was the silhouette of a beast. Certainly it was just a fox that found our little rabbit colony off to that side of the road. He would just sneak off with a full belly like the others before him. But, when this thing fully emerged from the forest, its figure was much bigger than I had expected. This was a beast I did not

recognize. My first impression was that it reminded me of the dogs in Egyptian hieroglyphics, with the elongated face and snout and tall pointy ears. The body resembled a greyhound, but suffering from severe malnutrition and with the ribs almost protruding through its mangy fur. There were long, skinny legs that appeared to have backwards knees, and an unnaturally long tail that was very thick at the base of its back, then tapered to a point on the end, very much like a kangaroo tail. As I was staring at this beast, in utter disbelief, it turned its head and stared straight into my eyes. I was trying not to pee my pants as I realized the eyes were glowing, ever so slightly. Suddenly, the crack of a branch off in the dark forest on the other side of the drive caught its attention. Still in the same spot on the left side of the drive, this beast kind

of hunched down on his haunches and, with one massive leap, cleared the entirety of the 10 ft. wide gravel road into the forest. And just like that, it was gone. Needless to say I didn’t sleep that night. The dogs stayed completely silent, heads to tails pressed flat on the bed with me. And fine, maybe I did pee my pants a little! But you would have too... I got online searching for an explanation for what I saw before I told anyone and got labeled as “The Lunatic of Lincoln County” or something to that effect. I ran into a plethora of local sightings and testimonials of paranormal possibilities. But the one that stood out and related to my experience the most was something called a “Chupacabra”, which literally translates to “blood sucker”. Legend has it that this thing drinks the blood of livestock, completely draining their blood. Well that settled it. I am wholeheartedly

convinced that is what I saw, or some mutated variation. Now I am really curious if any other people in the area have experienced anything similar. Thinking back on a different night, over the summer, I remember seeing a pack of little “cub” looking animals darting across the road in front of me on Hwy KK, just before the right turn in front of Kessler Wildlife Memorial. After my research I believe they were Chupracabra pups, before I humored the idea of tiger cubs in Missouri. No joke. I also came across some interviews with local residents that claim they saw Chupracabra themselves, in places like Bowling Green Lake. Have you seen one? Maybe it was something like “MoMo the Frogfoot” spotted up in Louisiana? There was even some “Bigfoot of Lincoln County” sightings. Please visit our Facebook page and tell us all about it! I’d really love to know your stories and to know I’m not just the crazy person out here in the woods (or in town). Tell you what; you don’t even have to admit you peed a little too, I promise!

Tongue Twisters To Totally Try Ten Times The scarecrow is sunning sleeplessly in somber solitude.

The Old Time-Keeper By Diana Arseneau

Continued from last issue... When we left Mia she had just climbed back into her Grandma’s big grandfather clock... Help the spider get to the center of his web

This issue... This time, when she opened the door, she was going to be a little more careful. She tried to look out of the glass before she opened the door but she couldn't see anything. So she very carefully opened it. As she peered out she noticed it was much brighter than before. It seemed as though dawn was breaking. She climbed out onto a wooden floor. No more grass! She must be back where belonged. She looked up at the clock - it said 6:00. Time for breakfast! Grandma always made a big breakfast. She started for the kitchen but quickly noticed things were still very different. Everything was green, from the wooden floors to the ceiling. And there were plants growing everywhere - between the cracks in the floor and out from under the furniture. There were thick vines with large furry leaves wrapped around the staircase spindles. Grandma's house looked like a jungle! And it sounded like one too. She could hear birds calling and bugs buzzing. Suddenly a little voice cried, "What are you doing here?" Mia turned to see a small elf-like creature. She was about half as tall as Mia and very thin. She had long green hair and dark green eyes. Mia said, "I thought I was on my way to the kitchen to eat breakfast but everything is strange and I just don't know what to do!" "Oh my!" exclaimed the little green elf. "You must have come from the clock. " "Yes I did, but who are you and how do you know about the clock?" asked Mia. "I am Illian Elgar, apprentice to the Master of the High Council of Forest Elves and I know almost everything that goes on in the forest of Amaranth," claimed the small creature. "Then you can tell me how to get back home!" cried Mia. "Well I'm afraid that's one of the few things that I don't know," she said as she looked at her feet. When Mia looked like she was going to burst out in tears lllian quickly added, "But let me find out for you!" And ran into the woods.

By Kalie Blankenship (age 11)

One day Sofia, Sabrina, Matthew and Liam went trick or treating on Halloween. They were dressed up as ghosts and witches. They went through the whole neighborhood and got to the last house. They thought it was decorated for Halloween, but it was really just abandoned. They went to the door, but they all chickened out to knock on the door except for Sabrina. She went up to the door and knocked. There was

no answer but the door slowly creaked open. They all slowly walked inside and the door slammed behind them and locked. They made a plan to try to find an exit together and not split up. Slowly they walked up the creaking stairs and looked in the first room but nothing. They kept walking down the hall and saw another room but the door was closed. They made Liam and Sabrina open the door and look inside, but they saw nothing. As they walked down the dark hall Mathew stepped on a tile and the tile moved a little and they all fell through the floor and landed in the basement. It was so dark that they couldn’t even see themselves. Luckily,
