Poem: It's winter again

It’s Winter Again

Gratitude to you, young woman,

sliding your squeegee across the glass,

wiping its blade dry again.

 

Praise for the care you’re taking

applying yourself side to side.

Inside the circle, the track

 

of our field house. We both find

ourselves inside, April surprising

the fields. It’s snowing!

 

More than the redwings like,

Faith in Vermont, California Sabbatical: They Paved Paradise

It’s late afternoon, and I’m looking east through the big picture windows of my favorite café in Berkeley, California. I’m used to seeing the Green Mountains when I look east, but today I see the Berkeley Hills.

When friends and family from Vermont ask how we’re doing during our five-month sabbatical in Berkeley, California, I usually answer, “It’s been a good experience. But it’s not home.”

By: 

Husband: I was thinking we could go to Berkeley for the second half of my sabbatical. We have family and friends there, and I could do research in my old department at UC Berkeley.

Me: Sure, that makes sense.

Husband: And we’d enroll the girls in school in Berkeley for the spring?

Me: Oh no, I’ll just homeschool them while we’re out there.

Out and About: Theater Times Three

Posted on March 17, 2016 | Blog Category:
By Jessie Raymond



Given the nature of the last two Addison Independent community calendar events I attended, and one I will be attending this weekend, the theme of this post will be “The Theatah.” (In my head, I pronounce it in the snooty, British aristocrat way because that’s how I’ve always tended to think of the theater: highbrow, a bit pretentious, and not something meant for those of us who are perfectly happy to stay home and watch Netflix.)

Better than the return

of the Redwing Blackbirds

Bob says, jogging by me,

Our destination: Orange County, a sprawling collection of suburbs just south of Los Angeles.

Our purpose: To visit my husband’s brother and his family…and Disneyland.
