By Faith Gong



It can be humbling to write a bi-weekly newspaper column: Few things more effectively highlight one’s capacity for change – or inconsistency, denial, and flip-flopping.  I’m not convinced that this is a bad thing; isn’t the point of individual human existence to grow and change?

I have commented previously in this column about my ambivalence towards gardening -- the result of a childhood spent watching my parents slave away each weekend in their garden -- and the unfavorable gardening conditions in my own rock-infested, tree-shaded yard. One could quite rightly characterize my current relationship with my garden as "rocky."

Faith in Vermont: Saying No to Lucky

It's important to learn how to say "No."

I know, I know, you think, rolling your eyes. C'mon, tell me something new.

Here's my best shot at something new: I'd wager that not many people have been taught to say "No" by Lucky the Leprechaun.

MIDDLEBURY — Reed Allen is a volunteer at Helen Porter Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Middlebury. Every Monday, from 10:45 a.m. until noon, he visits with the elderly residents, plays games, listens to stories, sings songs and does crafts.

Reed is four years old.
