The Burn in the Middle of Winter

 

 

This is what it’s like to ski through the burn.  

 

The snow covers everything, heavy and still.  It holds the ground, tacked down with animal tracks.  Large holes from elk, small rivets from ground squirrels and chipmunks. Dotted skids of birds and mice.&nbs/Read full post »

If I could talk to the CEO

I walked down the streets in a suburb of Sydney, Australia feeling how blessed I am, and feeling how tenuous every moment of life is.   I walked along avenues in downtown Sydney, in view of the famous opera house and the gorgeous bridges and gardens.  I walked along beaches in towns/Read full post »

Go Ask the Mice

Human beings have a mixed relationship with mice.  We have Stuart Little, the perennial children’s favorite, and champion of equality everywhere.   Ganesh, the Hindu elephant god of obstacles rides a mouse, attesting to his humility.  Watching mice has been likened to our ab/Read full post »

Charlie Rogers

 

My mother told me once that my vocabulary was shabby.  Embarrassing really for an educated girl of educated parents.  Why, she herself did crossword puzzles every day.  You wouldn’t see her losing her mind to age.  

But I didn’t care.  What need had I for/Read full post »

Polebridge, Montana, 1999


 

 

In the darkness of the Northern Lights Saloon it was hard to know what I was really thinking.  My mind was always full of thoughts of love and darkness is a cover where common sense and reality can hide.  I can always find a way to excuse/… Read full post »

The Scent of a Woman

 

 

My first psychic experience happened when I was 10 years old, sitting in the car with my ‘big sister,’ from one of those befriend a poor youth programs.  It was just before Christmas and we were exchanging gifts.  I knew, as she handed me the box, that there/Read full post »

The Hunger of Bread

 

 

 

Sourdough must be fed.  It is insatiable.  You cannot deny it.  I don’t know what would happen to my sourdough starter if I stopped feeding it.  I have gone on vacation for a week at a time and left it alone in the fridge.  WhenRead full post »

The Buzz: year one of a novice beekeeper

 

 

I didn’t research the bees at all before I got them.  Not like I researched the chickens.  Or the sheep, the cow and the horse, which I’m still researching.   The bees I just bought.  Two hives of Russians from an apiary near Lake Champlain, about halfwayRead full post »

Tree Pose

 

In August as I drive the winding roads through Vermont, it feels like summer will go on forever. The days are too hot and just long enough.  The fireflies come out at night and tumble around like lost stars. The air is humid and encourages dips in cool river eddiesRead full post »

Reverse Racism


I got on the plane with no agenda, just a ticket in hand and a journey in mind.  My best intentions always packs a book to study: Energy Medicine this trip, or a yoga sutra translation.  But as soon as I hit the backpackers’ in Puerto Limon, Costa

Tidy

 

One day last month the Aunties came to visit.  Or maybe it was the month before.  It's so hard to remember these things these days.  Two of them live in southern Vermont, in Newfane, in an old restored farmhouse.  One of themRead full post »

Dante's Tenth Circle

 

 

 

When my fiancé broke up with me last August, he consigned me to the tenth circle of Dante’s hell: Dating As A Woman Over Forty.

 

The dating pool for the 40 year old woman is frighteningly slim.  The men have no hair, or missing teeth or four kidsRead full post »
