Christmas and the red-tailed hawk

Up ahead, where the hard flatness of the highway drops off to a ragged edge, a large bird sits with his back to the white line. I am immediately cautious. Once, years ago, when I was driving through Fort Stewart on my way to court, a huge black turkey buzzard, similarly situated just off the asphalt, abruptly rose into the air and, then, equally abruptly, dove into my windshield.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Bad dreams -- Take a wait-and-see slant

Q: Our 5-year-old has suddenly started waking up with nightmares. He's not able to describe them with any clarity, however, so we don't know what the content of them is. The most he's able to tell us is that there are scary people chasing him. He began having them about a month ago and has had maybe 20 since. They usually occur about three hours after we tuck him in.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Visiting the past -- Holidays

When it comes to holidays, seniors are not the only ones who visit the past. If asked about memories most people would mention Christmas - from time spent with favorite people to the smell and taste of rich food and to presents. There is a lot of variation in the content because family tradition and location define what people do, what they treasure. Regardless of differences, many Christians and others delight in Christmas.

Kathy Bradley: A different kind of Christmas tree

There are fewer and fewer leaves on the sycamore tree each day. More and more sky showing through the satin-smooth branches. Its neighbors in the backyard - two saw-tooth oaks - are disrobing at a slightly slower rate, but they, too, are approaching nakedness. When the wind picks up, the trees sway and rattle, wiggle and rustle, like a little girl in a crinoline. An irritated liveliness. A frustrated animation.
