• Let your traveling spirit find a home at Avara Yoga

    There’s a saying in Yoga (don’t worry, it’s not in Sanskrit) that goes something along the lines of the postures that instill the most dread are the ones that are most needed – even instructors aren’t immune.

  • The Long of the Short Story

    As innocuous as it may seem, given the impending pressure of technology and the diminishing amount of personal time, the short story may be our best choice of literature. In just about 30 minutes, one short story can provide the necessary time away from screens and offer you the meditation you are searching for.

  • What’s in my Closet: Fashion items I am Thankful For

    I wasn’t sure where to start when writing this. Some days inspiration hits and I picture myself looking like Stephen King writing his next great thriller. You know; crazed looks and fingers moving so swiftly across the keyboard that everything around you becomes hazy and 100 percent of your focus is on writing. Some days I have to sit in my bedroom with the closet door open and stare into what seems to be a pit of black clothing.

  • Prologue: November

    This is the time of year that reminds me of my grandmother.
    The daylilies (or naked ladies) have just finished blooming, the leaves (which were the bain of her existence) have been steadily falling, there’s a cool in the air, and pumpkins, turkeys, cornucopia and the like have dotted the harvest decor landscape.

  • Signature Recipe Roundup: Thanksgiving Edition

For the past five years, Signature has featured the Thanksgiving traditions, complete with recipes of local families and organizations. This year we’ve pulled all that together for a neat recipe book that our readers also contributed to.

  • A Mother's Love: Remembering Billie

    Last September, a little more than a year ago, my mother ran out of breath. 

    I have struggled with how to communicate the finality of that. Despite years of journalistic training not to be euphemistic, I have usually said she passed away.

    A journalist would follow Associated Press Style and say she died. Died. Dead. Thud. So staccato. So monosyllabic.

  • Meet Your Neighbor: Martha Allen

    As folks around the country prepare for the bountiful meal of Thanksgiving, it seems like a perfect time for me to introduce myself. I genuinely love to meet people and I really love to share about the great work Extra Table is doing in Hattiesburg and the state.
