I considered posting a gloomy photo of rain running down a window pane. That could be depressing and sappy, but it’s not my style. When rain and storms block in the way, don’t slow down, stay the course. Move forward to where you want to go. During a rainy Gloucester Schooner Race, Captain Steve Douglass looks ahead, consults his charts, and sees beyond the rain. I do not look at the rain dripping down the glass, but rather navigate as Captain Douglass does: Carry on toward your destination. I welcome the impending rain.

This colossal arachnid is the world’s largest spider. Not only is its venom poisonous, when aggravated, Theraphosa blondi rubs its back with its feet to release a shower of barbed particles, which will cause extreme irritation and itching.
The Cape Ann Forum is pleased to welcome H.D.S. (David) Greenway, a veteran foreign correspondent as its speaker on October 26, 2014.
Over his 50-year career reporting from 96 countries, Greenway went where the story was, from the jungles of Vietnam, to Phnom Penh under siege from the Khmer Rouge, the civil war in Pakistan that created Bangladesh, Israel’s wars with its neighbors and the first Palestinian intifadah, and the disintegration of the Soviet Union. He was wounded in Vietnam and awarded the Bronze Star for rescuing a wounded Marine.
Reporting for Time Magazine, the Washington Post and the Boston Globe, Greenway has covered conflicts in Lebanon and the Balkans, both Gulf Wars, and Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2005, reporting from post-invasion Baghdad at the age of 70, he called Iraq “the most dangerous environment I had ever known.”
Observing American interventions cast in epic terms, Greenway witnessed what he calls “the sometimes tragic efforts of the United States to fill the vacuum of retreating empires.”
Greenway is a contributing columnist for the Boston Globe, the International New York Times and GlobalPost. Formerly he was the editorial page editor of the Globe and its national and foreign editor. He served in the U.S. Navy, was educated at Yale and Oxford, and was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard in 1971. In 2009 Greenway was awarded the Edward Weintal Prize for Diplomatic Reporting from Georgetown’s Institute for the Study of Diplomacy.
Author of the new book, “Foreign Correspondent: A Memoir”, Greenway will talk about lessons learned over a lifetime of war reporting at the Cape Ann Forum at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 26 at City Hall in Gloucester. The event is free and open to the public.
Copies of Greenway’s book will be available for sale and signing.

In my garden design practice, the topic of deadheading flowers comes up often, especially at this time of year. The habitat garden is designed for people and for pollinators and the objective is to find a balance between the two. Esthetically speaking, to some, a garden only looks its best when every plant is tidily trimmed and every spent flower blossom removed. But to a hungry bird on the wing, an expiring sunflower or cosmos is bird food. Some plants should be deadheaded and pruned however, the next time you get a jones to neaten a plant, take a moment to look at it from the perspective of a songbird.

I like a bit of unruliness in the garden and don’t even deadhead cosmos any longer. They will continue to flower whether deadheaded or not. A few weeks ago while working with several of our wonderful HarborWalk volunteers, I was explaining what plants to deadhead and what plants not to deadhead, and why, when at the very moment that I was speaking those very words, three brilliant cadmium yellow goldfinches flew on the scene and began devouring the seed heads of a nearby coneflower!

And too, a batch of Echinacea not only provides mid-winter sustenance to hungry birds, the seed heads sure look pretty silhouetted by new fallen snow.
