Dora and Frank were some older neighbors that I often visited. They lived in a little trailer house. In the winter, I would haul wood from their shed and stack it by their door to make it more convenient for them to keep their house warm. One winter day when I arrived, they werent home. That was a little bit unusual because they seldom went anywhere in the winter. But I didnt think too much about it. I figured they must have gone to the store or something. I set to work refilling their wood supply. I also shoveled their walk and chipped off the ice. Just as I was finishing and preparing to leave, another neighbor stopped to visit with me. Youve heard that Doras in the hospital, havent you? he asked. No, I replied. Whats the problem? She had an allergic reaction to something, he said. I decided I would pay Dora and Frank a visit at the hospital, but I was too dirty and sweaty to go directly there. I hurried home and showered and changed. I then drove to the hospital. When I arrived, I checked in at the front desk, and they told me where Dora was. I went to her room and knocked on the open door. Frank, a man of few words, beckoned to me to come in. Dora greeted me, and we visited briefly before the doctor came in. He told Frank the hospital needed to run some more tests, and Frank nodded. But when the doctor started to visit with Dora, she appeared frightened. Dora, the doctor said, its time to take you upstairs. Suddenly, Dora started to yell. No! No! I dont want to go! She tried to get up, almost ripping the I.V. from her arm. The doctor stopped her, but not without great effort. He hit the nursecall button to get additional help. A nurse appeared and joined in the fray, but Nora was fighting like a lion. They called for more help. Frank and I moved out of the way as another nurse and an orderly came in. It took all of them great effort to keep Dora from escaping. The doctor asked Frank if they could give Dora a sedative to calm her, and Frank nodded. With a quick shot into her IV, Dora finally settled down and was soon asleep. That was when they took her for some more tests. I said goodbye to Frank as he headed to the elevator with them. The next day, after work, I went to the hospital to see how Dora was doing. Frank nodded a hello as I came in. Dora was sitting up eating her dinner. So how are you doing today? I asked her. Dora shoved her food to the side. I think I need to explain about yesterday, she said. Only if you want to, I replied. The thing is, she said, when you came, I was still a little out of it from my allergic reaction. And when you come to visit us, its almost always in our home. So, as we sat there visiting, I somehow got the idea I was at home. Then, as we visited, the doctor came in, and I couldnt figure out who he was or why he was in my home dressed in white. But then when he said he was going to take me upstairs, my mind reminded me that our trailer didnt have an upstairs. And as I sat there staring at him, in his white robe, it came to my mind that the upstairs he was talking about was heaven. I was sure he was the angel of death, and he had come for me. I laughed. Dora, as hard as you fought, the angel of death would have had his hands full taking you. Its too bad you werent entered in Olympic wrestling. Frank smiled and said some of the few words Id ever heard him say. He said, She could have won the gold.

In 1545 William Turner used a ver sion of it in his papist satire The Rescuing of Rom ish Fox: Byrdes of on kynde and color flok and flye all wayes together. The first known citation in print of the currently used English ver sion of the phrase appeared in 1599, i n The Dictiona rie in Spanish and English, which was compiled by the English lexi cographer John Minsheu: Birdes of a feather will flocke tog ither. The phrase also appears in Ben jamin Jowetts 1 856 translation of Platos Repub lic. Clearly, if it were present in the original Greek text then, at around 380BC, Platos work would be a much earli er reference to it. What appears in Jowetts version is: Men of my age flock together; we are birds of a feather, as the old proverb says. Platos text can be translated in other ways and it is safe to say it was Jowett in 1856, not Plato in 380BC, that con sidered the phrase to be old. The lack of any citation of it in English prior to the 16th cen tury does tend to su ggest that its literal translation wasnt present in The Republic a text that was widely read by En glish scholars of the classics well before the 16th century. In nature, birds of a single species do in fact frequently form flocks. Orni thologists explain t his behavior as a safety in numbers tactic to reduce the risk of predation. In lan guage terms, it was previously more common to refer to birds fly ing together than flocking together and many early citations use that form, for exam ple Philemon Hol lands translation of Livys Romane historie, 1600: As commonly birds of a feather will flye togeth er.

I originally started writing this column by saying that the St. Johns River was one of a very few north-flowing rivers in the world. But to get the actual number and just to cover myself, I did a little research and discovered that in fact, there are actually about 30 rivers in the United States and more than 60 rivers throughout the world that flow north. Well, that was a surprise, but I also learned that the St. Johns is the longest river in the state of Florida. Its 310 miles wind through or border on twelve counties and include some of the states most important wetlands. It begins in Indian River County at a point west of Vero Beach, as a network of springfed marshes aptly named the St. Johns Marsh, and winds its way to Jack sonville, where it finally empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Because the river flows in a northerly direction, the upper basin is located in the headwaters of the river at its southernmost point, which can be very confusing when you tell someone to head south, up the river. I could quote a lot of interesting stuff that I gleaned from my research, but instead I want to write just a little about our St. Johns River, the few miles between the north end of Lake George to Welaka. And what a river it is unique in so many ways. Bound by vast marshes and wetlands, with different depths and widths and bottom materials and structures; whimsical currents, with springs bubbling up almost everywhere, and such a wide variety of characteristics, personalities, and moods, that even folks who have lived on or near the river all their lives dont know them all. I love the St. Johns Riverour river. There is always something new to see and every day is differ ent. Some days you may see mullet shooting up out of the water all around you, flashing silver in the sunlight; or maybe turtles and gators sunning themselves on a log. Depending on the time of year, you may see white spider lilies or red swamp mallows, purple hyacinths, yellow water lilies, spatter dots, and the resurrection ferns that look dead until they get a little rain when they sprout tiny blooms that look like little orchids. Huge spider webs glistening with morning dew, the perfect trap for the many flying insects that infest the area. And the gazillion critters we usually dont see, like frogs, salamanders, snakes, crabs, mussels, snails, and more. There are so many shades of green and so many different shapes and sizes of plant and animal life in and on the river that it truly boggles the mind. Then there are the birdseagles and hawks; anhingas, egrets, cranes, herons, and ibis; grackles, blackbirds; grebes and coots; ducks, sea gulls and pelicans; and occasionally, a swallow-tailed kite. The bird list could go on and on, but of all of them, although not really my favorite, the Bald Eagles are the ones that make me pause for a moment and feel sorry for all the people in this country who will never have the opportunity to see live and in person this soar ing symbol of our nation and all the other natural beauty that I see every day. And the saddest thing is that theyll not even know what theyre missing. I guess the ospreys are probably my favorite of the big birdsthey are so beautiful and are always around and fun to watch. And this time of year, if you happen to be at just the right place at just the right time, you might see a pair of them high in the sky, doing the graceful mating dance their kind has done for years. And right now they are working to furnish their nests, making it just right to hold and protect the eggs she will lay. I like to think of it as papa osprey going shopping for the furniture that he brings home to the nest where mama osprey arranges it to her satisfaction. And she is not hesitant to let him know if she isnt happy with what he brings her to work with. Sometimes shell actually throw it out and sometimes, shell just fuss at him with loud, high-pitched squeals. They do a lot of talking to each other almost all day long, and wouldnt I just love to know what theyre sayingthere is an osprey nest almost in our backyard, way up on the top of an old dead tree that were keeping an eye on. The pair is still finishing up work on the nest so It will be a while yet, but we look forward to seeing the first fuzzy little head of a newborn chick peek over the side, and hearing their cries as they stretch their scrawny necks vying for the food mom and dad take turns bringing to them all day long. And finally, when they get feathered out and big enough to stand up on the edge of the nest and start flapping their wingsthe way they wobble and flounder, you just know theyre going to topple head first onto the ground below and break every bone in their little bodies. But they never seem to. And if we are really lucky, we might see them on the big day when instinct just takes over and pushes them into taking that giant leap and soaring into the sky for the first timeit makes us smile and smile and smile if we are lucky enough to see one of these special moments, and its only one of the things that make us glad we live on the St. Johns River. But sometimes, theres stuff to be seen on the river thats not so pretty and makes me kinda sad. Like now, the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Irma, whose effects can still be seen mile after mile, and some that cannot be seen but still affect all of us who live here, some of which can never be repaired or restored. So many beautiful old trees blown down, their massive roots torn up out of the earth and laid bare to the burning sun, and crushing many bird and squir rel nests as they fell. And so many docks and boathouses torn apart, their pilings just sucked up out of the ground by Irmas wind and waves. And who knows what else was destroyed? I dont think anyone will ever really know. Two of the most recognizable, even historical, landmarks are gone just gone. That old warehouse just south of the ramp where the ferry for Drayton Island is based is probably the landmark that will be missed the most. Built sometime in the late 1890s as a citrus warehouse, it was moved to its final resting place in the 1930s, and was pretty much abandoned in recent years. No one could ever count the number of photos that have been taken or paintings that have been done of that old building that with stood all the onslaughts of man and nature until now, until Irma. And now its gonejust gone. A great-granddaughter or maybe she is a great-great-granddaughter of the Babbitt who moved the building here, recently spent a few weeks here with her husband, tearing down what was left of the old structure in an attempt to make it safe for possible souvenir hunters wanting to pick up a small piece of their own history as well as that of their river. And remember the lovely gazebo that stood at the north end of Lake George for decades? Often referred to as the par ty house because of the frequent lively entertaining that took place there over the years, it could be seen for miles, standing out like a bright white beacon. Now, thanks to Irma, whats left of this landmark lies piled askew on the shore, but most of it is gonejust gone. And the Fort Gates Fer ryit isnt really gone, thank goodness, but it sustained enough damage that it has been out of service all these months since the storm and will not be in service again until late fall when repairs and refurbishment should be completed. In addition to Irma, we have had what is possibly the wackiest fall and winter weather on record this year, and I really believe that it has had a definite negative effect on the fishing. Nearly everyone I have talked to says the fishing is anything from not what it should be to way bad to other comments I cant quote here, and I can vouch for the way bad myselfbut, I have also heard that some small bass are being caught here and there on live shiners, but nothing anyone cares to brag about. The fish are here, but they just arent in the mood to bite, that maybe theyre as confused as we humans are with this wacky weather. And the winddo you sometimes think it will never stop? I know, its March, and March is usually windy, but I dont remember it ever being so relentless! And more disturbing than just the cold and the wind, is a conversation I had just recently with local fishing guide and Georgetown resident Joe Nichol. He said that almost all the eel grass is gonejust gone. Eel grass is per haps the most important plant of all the aquatic plants and wetlands for most of our fish. Its where they live, feed and hide from predators. The extraordinarily high water levels brought to us by Irma that stayed high for so long, deprived this valuable resource of the sunlight it needs to stay alive. Bad news for the fish and sad for the hundreds of fishermen who come from all over the country because of the proliferation of largemouth bass, specks, also known as crappie), and bream in these waters for year. But enough of the bad stuff Another thing that moves my soul and makes me stop what Im doing to just gaze in wonder is an indescribably beautiful sunset across the river. I know sunsets are beautiful in countless other places, but here, on our river, the sun feels so close, like you could almost walk right into it. And the variety and intensity of the colors seem to be endless, from the subtle soft blues, pur ples, and mauve-ish grays to blinding gold and an almost unbelievable range of blazing reds. What an awesome pallet Mother Nature uses to paint our evening sky! So, in spite of what Nature hands out, our river flows on and on and continues to nurture and hopefully restore all of the life around it. Shes not at her best right now, but she will be again, especially if we all do whatever we can to protect and take care of this natural treasure so that it will be The Beautiful St. Johns River for years and years to come.

When our Scoutmaster talked to us about going on a moonlight paddle at Lake Stella, I wondered what it would be like. It was awesome! We had so many boys show up that our scout master had to go back to his house and get more kayaks! There were over fteen of us that came. Only 11 of us got in the water but we had a great time. We arrived just as the sun was getting ready to go down. We unload ed the kayaks and took them to the sandy part of the beach on Lake Stella. We each had a light for the kayak and a whis tle. After we put on our life jackets, we launched ourselves into water. You have to put the kayak into the water and then use your hands to push yourself off the rest of the way so you are oating. Our Scoutmasters son came with us. Hes an Eagle Scout and helps us on our Scout Troop Committee. He got a new kayak for Christmas and this was its maiden voy age. He was pretty excit ed because he had been using other kayaks but now he has his own blue one. He was grinning from ear to ear. We all stayed pretty close at rst because it was getting harder to see. Then we all turned the lights on in our kayaks and they glowed! It was so cool to see all the dif ferent lights around us. When our scoutmaster got back with the other kayaks, he jumped in his kayak and we all followed him. We paddled over to the dock. The water is sure a lot higher than be fore Hurricane Irma. We used to be able to paddle under the dock and now the water is really high by the edge of the dock. Our scoutmasters wife was standing on the dock so she could get our picture. She was surprised about how high the water was, too. When we got close to the dock, we all did our best to hold on to one another, side by side, so our picture could be taken. It was so funny. Some of our guys couldnt get their kayaks turned around to face the dock. I mean, after all, it was dark by then. Once we nally got situated, we realized we were too far away for pictures so we needed to turn and move closer to the dock. I heard our Scoutmaster say, Ok. Everyone turn towards the dock so we can get a good picture. The guys on the end will have to paddle more to turn all of us because we are hanging on to each other. Sure! Easier said than done! Can you picture all of us holding on to one another and trying to turn together? You could hear several giggles; full blown laughter; a hey, guys, wait a minute; and wo! Not that far! We nally succeeded in getting everyone turned toward the dock so pictures could be taken. The pictures looked pretty cool; lots of differ ent colored dots oating on the water. Sorry the pictures were too dark to put in the newspaper. If you happen to see our scoutmasters wife, ask her to show them to you. She carries her phone in her pocket most of the time so I bet she would show you the pictures. They look like something youd see on the water at Disney World, at least that what she said we looked like with all the lights moving across the water. We hurried back to the sandy beach where the trucks were parked. We helped load the kayaks and then rushed home because it was a school night. All in all, it was a great activity and we made more memories. Troop 957 and Pack 957 are sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We have our meetings on Wednesday nights each week at 6 p.m. for the Scouts age 11-18. Cub Scouts meet the second and fourth Wednesday nights of each month for ages 8-10. We hope you can come enjoy scouts with us!Way Back When...

Simmons Mt. Tabor First Baptist Church South Putnam CampusPalatka Mt. Tabor First Baptist Church Main Campus Obituaries All Saints Anglican Church What are you celebrating this season? I s it salvation, vic tory and freedom or is i t only salvation? Will Jesus Christ acknowledge your celebration as being complete? This arti cle aims at encour aging you to utilize t he entire package our Saviour Christ delivered to us the day He rose again. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay Matthew 28:6 (NKJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, be cause He has anoint ed Me to preach the g ospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim l iberty to the cap tives and recovery of s ight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the ac ceptable year of the L ord Luke 4:18-19 (NKJV). Many people are still in their op pression because t hey have refused or dont know how to take their mat and go home (Luke 5:24). They have accepted salvation from Christ but they are yet to take the goods Jesus paid for on the cross and de livered at His resur rection. I i magine the Lord Jesus shouting, I am risen! Why are you still there? The stone is rolled away (Mark 16:4), just follow Me and walk out of that grave! I am risen, dont you understand what it means? It means salvation, victory and freedom. Free dom from shame, re proach, oppres sion, sickness and d isease, fear, down trodden state, help lessness, etc. W hat are you doing with Christs victo ry on the cross and re surrection? Jesus truly has the keys of hell and of death (Revelations 1:18), by His stripes you were healed (1 Pe ter 2:24), God has t ranslated you from the kingdom of darkness into His Sons kingdom (Co lossians 1:13). You a re not bound any more (Hebrews 2:141 5)! ONLY BELIEVE! (Mark 5:36) Read and chew the scriptures, pray, de cide to walk with G od and you will understand and live the life of victory and freedom purchased for you by our Lord Jesus Christ with His blood. Follow Je sus and walk away f rom that challenge. I imagine our Sav iour Christ saying, Why are you crying to me? You have com passed this moun tain enough. I have f inished the work, take it and use it! You are not saved to remain in your state. Follow Jesus and walk away to day. You are free, n o more enslaved to sin, the shackles are broken, and the doors are open. Fol low Jesus and walk a way today. My prayer as you celebrate Easter, is that by the blood of Jesus you will take up your mat and fol low Jesus out of that c hallenge, in Jesus name. Salvation, victory and freedom is yours! Hallelujah! Easter Celebration I Am Risen!

Some know parsley only as an attractive leaf garnish thats ignored, not eaten. Its true that parsley leaves are an attrac tive plant with small, scalloped leaves, but it has more than a pretty appearance. Its an annual herb thought to have originated in southeaster n Europe or western Asia, now grown in gardens throughout the world. There are two basic parsley types: one with curly, crinkly leaves and the more familiar Italian parsley, which is flat. The latter is hardier for withstanding cold in Northern or Midwest gar dens. Parsley usually reaches one to two feet in height in the first year before flowering, and grows best in partial shade. Its been suggested that because its a bit dif ficult to start from seed, taking up to two months to sprout, buying small parsley seedlings may be a better way to start this in your indoor pots or late spring garden. One tip involves pouring a kettle of boiling water along the row before covering the seeds. As a potted plant, keep it evenly moist. Chopped fresh or dried and combined with thyme and bay leaves, parsley is in cluded in the French combination of herbs called bouquet garni, used to season stock, stews, and soups. It can be added to sand wiches, any type of casser ole and adds a fresh, spring-like flavor to dips and cheese. The best way to keep fr esh parsley sprigs is to wrap them in damp paper towels, place in a sealed zip-lock bag gie, and keep refrigerated. Dried parsley flakes ar e useful for several months when stored in a tightly sealed glass container and stored in cool, dark, and dry place. Health Benefits of Parsley If you want to be im pressed by parsley, take a look at its vi tamin K content a whopping 574 per cent of the daily recom mended value. What this does is pr omote bone strength, but it also has a role in the treatment and possible prevention of Alzhei mers disease by limiting neuronal damage in the brain. The vita min K dominance is enough to make the 62 per cent daily value of vitamin C and the 47 percent DV in vi tamin A look positive ly paltry, but the C content is thr ee times more than in orang es, and the A aug ments the carotenes lutein and zeaxanthin, helping to pr event eye diseases like cataracts and macular degener ation. The ir on in parsley, twice as much as in spinach, is essential for the production of an important oxygen-car rying component in the r ed blood cells called heme. Copper is important because its required by the body for normal metabolic processes, but must be supplied through outside sources. The manganese in parsley contains super-an tioxidant superoxide dismutase, and the folate helps form red blood cells and make up our genetic material. Parsley is useful as a digestive aid with its high fiber content. This helps move foods through the digestive tract and controls blood-cholesterol lev els, but has a diuretic ef fect as well. A tea made from parsley is a traditional remedy for colic, indigestion, and intestinal gas. As an herb sprinkled in food, it actually helps purify the blood and fight cancer. Eating parsley is now thought to be a way to detoxify the system of harmful compounds like mer cury, sometimes found in dental fillings. Quite a unique compilation of compounds and volatile oils is con tained in parsley. Eugenol is used in den tistry as a local anes thetic and an antiseptic to help prevent gum diseases. Its also been found to r educe blood sugar levels. Polyphenolic flavonoids a nd antioxidants in clude apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol, and alphathujen. Volatile oils include myristicin, limonene, apiol, and alpha-thujene. It also contains one of the highest antioxidant counts among plants, with an oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) of 74,349 per 100 grams of fresh, raw parsley. Studies on Parsley The apigenen in cel ery and parsley was also shown to dramatically inhibit breast cancer cells in a cele brated study done at the University of Missouri. Scientists found apigenin shrank a certain breast cancer tumor stimulated by progestin, a synthetic hormone taken by women for menopausal symptoms. Fourteen subjects participated in a randomized crossover trial to r esearch the effectiveness of the flavone apigenin in parsley on the biomarkers fo r oxidative stress. Erythrocyte gluta thione reductase (a polypeptide important in oxidation-r educ tion) and superoxide dismutase (which removes free radicals) activities wer e found to increase during in tervention with parsley. The conclusion: parsley seemed partly responsible for in creased levels of glutathione reductase and super oxide dismutase. Parsley Healthy Recipes: Garlic Green Beans with Parsley Ingredients: 1 pound green beans, stem ends removed 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 medium cloves of garlic, minced 2 teaspoons lemon zest Sea salt and freshly ground pepper 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley Procedure: Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add green beans and cook until tender but still crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain and set aside. In the same pot, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium low heat. Add the garlic and cook until it begins to soft en, about 2 minutes. Retur n the beans to the pot. Add the lemon zest, remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and season with salt and pep per. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and parsley. T oss to coat and serve. Optional: Sprinkle with 1/4 cup almonds, toasted and chopped, and sprinkle with raw cheese of choice. This recipe makes 4 servings. There was no splash down over the Atlantic or even a touchdown at Cape Canaveral, but the finale event for One Book, One Putnam was anything but anti-climatic. Nicole Stott, former astronaut and two time space shuttle engineer and cr ew for the In ternational Space Sta tion, was the featured speaker last Wednesday night. Stott graduated from Clearwater High School in 1980. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Engineering from Embry-Riddle Aer o nautical University in 1987 and a Master of Science in Engineer ing Management from the University of Cen tral Florida in 1992. As a child, her family spent a lot of time at the airport because her father was a pilot. It was fr om this that she developed her love of flying. After high school she wanted to study how airplanes flew and that led her to engineering. The next step, of course, after learning how airplanes flew, Stott said, was to understand how rocket ships flew, and then, maybe someday, get to fly on them too. Stott joined NASA at the Kennedy Space Center in 1988 as an Operations Engineer in the Orbiter Processing Facility. She said she couldnt help but be inspir ed each day by touching the space shuttle or working with parts of it and with people who did the same. In 1998 Stott was selected as a NASA Flight Simulation Engineer and as an astronaut and Mission Specialist in 2000. As part of her training she moved to Hous ton where she spent a number of years while she was active in the Space Shuttle pr o gram. Im r eally happy to be back in Florida, Stott said. When I was in the Interna tional Space Station I was always looking at the earth to find Flor ida. I really think that the ar ea from Flori da to Venezuela is the most beautiful place on earth. Although Stott flew many years after the 1986 Challenger and the 2003 Columbia Shuttle disasters, she said the possibilities of what could happen is on every astronauts mind as they prepare for their mission. Its a risky thing no matter how well prepared you are, she said. I worked with many excellent people whose job it was to keep the shuttle mis sions safe. One of our main tasks, as engi neers and astronauts, was to become a better team no matter what job we wer e each as signed. But my best pr eparation for work ing in space was the training I r eceived underwater. In April 2006 Stott was a crew member on the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations mission. She still holds the womens world record for saturation diving with a total of eighteen days spent living and working in the Aquar ius lab just over five mile of f Key Largo. No matter what type or how much train ing you have nothing r eally physically or emotionally prepares you for the launch of the Space Shuttle. The crew is aboard about two hours before launch but we dont really get involved until about twenty min utes before take off. And its not r eally until the ten second count down that you actu ally start to believe I might actually fly to day! At six seconds fuel starts flowing from the big orange tank to the shuttle engines. Its kind of a mellow rumble until the solid fuel rocket boost ers are engaged. With the shuttle engines and the boosters you have about seven mil lion pounds of thrust behind you. Y ou feel like youre going some where really fast, your body shakes so much you feel like your insides are jello and that thr ee people are sitting on top of you. For the first minute and a half of the flight theres not a lot to do which is a good thing. Because as human beings, some of us cry, some laugh and others want to high five everybody. The emotions that come acr oss your face are impossible to control. I flew aboard Dis covery in 2009 and 2011 and came home on the Space Shuttle Atlantis, Stott said. I had to wait nine years befor e I got to go into space. Its a long time to wait but it was defi nitely worth it. I could have made a thir d flight but I realized I wanted to share my experiences so I decid ed two trips to space wer e enough for me. Stott said that NASA is working on a mission to Mars by 2030 but befor e that a re turn trip to the moon is necessary in maybe five to ten years. A lot of what the fifteen countries involved in the International Space Station are doing is helping prepare for upcoming missions. As a r etired NASA Astronaut, Stott is pursuing her next ad venture as a full time artist. She is the second astronautAlan Beane was the first to become an artist after retiring. Inspired by her spaceflights, she is using her artwork to share the awe some beauty she experienced through the windows of the Space S huttle and Space Station and the vi sor of her spacesuit during her spacewalks to pr omote the amazing things being done everyday in space that benefit us all right here on Earth. Stott is also looking forward to spending more time with her family and to actively supporting STEAM/STEM (Sci ence, Technology, En gineering, the Arts and Mathematics) educational organizations.
