Poet's corner: A special appearance from 13th century Persia

Each Note 

(excerpted from the full poem)

 

Life freezes if it doesn’t get a taste

God picks up the reed-flute world and blows.

Each note is a need coming through one of us,

a passion, a longing-pain.

Movie review: 'Adrift'

Posted on June 11, 2018 |
By Joan Ellis



Adrift Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin movie review.jpg

Adrift — Running Time: 1:38 — Rating: PG-13

Early warning: I loved and admired “Adrift” without any reservation and am thoroughly pleased to be able to write about it. Director Baltasar Kormakur delivers the emotions of a young couple as they fall in love and then as they endure the massive hurricane of 1983 at sea.

By John Flowers

MONTPELIER — Sen. Chris Bray, D-New Haven, was thinking big when he first ran for the Vermont Senate six years ago. His goals were pretty much all predicated on producing systematic changes to Vermont’s agricultural, economic and environmental landscapes.

So it’s no coincidence he has, during his legislative career, taken a lead role in the Farm-to-Plate, renewable energy, Act 250, and clean water bills — initiatives designed to prove their worth in the next five to 10 years.
