I have always enjoyed this time of year. Even as a child growing up in Chicago, fall afternoons meant playing baseball with a sweatshirt on or running through piles of fallen leaves, some of which were raked quite neatly and I mischievously found joy in rummaging through those piles as well.
I had my conversation in my aunt’s car on a South Dakota road. I’m talking about starting that conversation about your family’s heart history.
A true story made headlines Nov. 4. A trove of approximately 1,500 works of art confiscated by the Nazis in World War II were seized in a Munich apartment. The value was estimated to be $1.3 billion by artists such as Picasso, Matisse and Chagall. The news goes on to say that determining the rightful owners of the works decades after they were either sold under duress or seized could take years.

My assignment: In 700 words or less, I’m supposed to keep you and your money safe while you’re out buying for the holidays. How about I do it in 17 words and two punctuation points: do not buy gift cards, do not shop online, and do not get talked into extended warranties!
Thanksgiving. A holiday started long ago that currently finds its way into homes of pumpkin scents, laced around glazed turkeys, cranberry sauce, and good-ole mashed potatoes. Yet the Thanksgiving holiday is not just seen as a time to celebrate that we all love to eat, and the food coma we eventually fall into afterwards, but a day to stop and think about what we are truly thankful for.
The way Fido wags his tail might reveal more about him than you know. Just ask another dog.
In this 2012 image provided by the Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Bari, a dog, bottom right, watches a video of the silhouette of another dog wagging its tail to its left. At top right is an inset image of the dog's heart rate while the dog was watching the video. A few years ago, researchers discovered a subtle difference in how dogs wag their tails. When a dog sees something positive, such as its owner, it tends to wags its tail more to its right. The wagging tends to go left when it sees something negative, like an unfamiliar dominant dog. In the Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 issue of the journal Current Biology, the same Italian researchers report that other dogs pick up on that difference, and it’s reflected in their behavior and even their heart rates.

Have you ever walked through a season in your life you thought might break you? I’m not talking about the everyday stuff. We’re each going to wrestle with our share of broken air conditioners in July, cranky bosses, and family feuds.

When you can’t lift yourself out of the pit despite all of your coping resources – faith, friends, family, chocolate ice cream. And wine, in the name of truth telling.

Rarely has a story about an angelic schoolgirl been narrated by Death. But such is the case in the dark, yet wondrous Nazi Germany-set "The Book Thief."
