#atozchallenge – N for Nepenthe

Guys… we’re already past the halfway point in the #atozchallenge!  I spent 99% of the last week offline and have missed my blog time. I’ll be catching up this week and hope to visit all you all on your blogs.

For today we have the nifty letter N:

Nepenthe[ni-pen-thee]noun – a drug or drink, or the plant yielding it, mentioned by ancient writers as having the power to bring forgetfulness of sorrow or trouble.

I’m sure Luke and Leia were wishing for some nepenthean concoctions after all was revealed! Writing that I am reminded of my high school days when the lives of Luke and Laura on General Hospital were all that mattered. Perhaps we all need some nepenthe after that.

I’ve often said that if I could wake up with a matrix-like download of information tomorrow I’d like to have a complete knowledge of botany. It might be useful to have the ability to create nepenthe on demand.
