LEWISBORO, N.Y. – On Sunday, May 6, the second annual Lewisboro Blessing of the Animals was held at Old Field Preserve’s Meditation Garden, sponsored by Lewisboro Land Trust.

The Blessing of the Animals was presided over by Rev. Danny Martin of Cross River. The 25-minute ceremony included stories, music and songs. All animals/pets were welcome, but only dogs showed up. Participants were invited to decorate a rock, inscribed with an intention or a dedication or in memory/honor, to be left at the garden.

All photos were taken by Deena Bell for The Katonah-Lewisboro Times.

Walking and Talking

Walking is my favorite mode of transportation. It is also my preferred form of exercise, meditation, stress reduction and idea generation.

In middle school and high school, I walked and talked with my friends, Irene, Alexandra and Charles. We covered miles and miles around our neighborhood and beyond during those free-range chats. After school, we might walk to the park or to the small ...

What Kind of Sports Parent Are You?

Social media recently showered a lot of likes and love on a high school pitcher in Minnesota whose team was playing in a regional final that would send the winning team to the state championship game.

After the last batter of the game struck out, the pitcher did something unheard of. Rather than spontaneously join his teammates in an on-field celebration, as is customary, the pitcher ...

Putnam County highlights

Putnam County: ”Where the country begins” pretty much sums up my view every day as I traverse this beautiful area. At every turn there is a reservoir, farm, trail or the stunning vista of the Hudson Highlands. Less development and fewer traffic lights showcase nature’s bounty uniquely during each season and I never tire of taking it all in. I often stop and take pictures on my ...

I Come from the Land Down Under

I know this is a family column, so I’m going to put this in as delicate terms as possible.

This morning I woke up and I knew, as sure as the sun shines over Bora Bora, that something was very, very wrong in that place in my body where the Bora Bora sun doesn’t shine.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...

Hitting the road, Part II

Welcome back to our little trip across these great United States. We left off somewhere on Route 90, heading out of Cleveland.

So glad to have you following along, and frankly, if you’re following I’m just glad you’re not the cops. On the way to Chicago I found myself driving 70 miles an hour, which made the police quite angry, since the speed limit was 75. 

When ...
