In just my second year at Middlebury College, 1977, I visited old friend Russ Reilly in the field house. Russ was newly arrived to coach basketball at the college.

He introduced me to another new coach, a 24-year-old woman, Carson Lessels, who had come to Middlebury to lead the swimming and women’s basketball teams.

Russ coached basketball for 20 years and served as athletic director for nine more before retiring. Carson went on to coach at Middlebury for 38 years before she retired last spring.

MIDDLEBURY — Many of Vermont’s small towns have a Civil War monument, but how many local residents still come to these piles of marble or granite as places of memorial and healing and how many just drive by with their eyes fixed ahead on a downtown parking spot?

These kinds of questions — What do we commemorate as a nation and as a community? Whose story do we tell? And how do we tell it? — are behind the current exhibit in Middlebury College’s Davis Family Library of a panel from the AIDS Memorial Quilt.

HAVANA, Cuba — Two weeks ago in a cool, tiled room in Havana, Cuba, Sena Voncujovi handed me a chicken. As instructed, I held it from behind, thumb and forefinger slipped under its wings. I thanked it, whispered my struggles into its left ear and my wishes into its right one, before passing it back to Sena, who calmly pressed a knife to its throat and offered its life to Eleguá, the spirit guardian of the crossroads. A moment later, his younger brother Pele snapped a photo for Instagram.
