Poem: After Labor Day

After Labor Day Maybe it’s because they see my children waiting for the bus in their new clothes, kicking stones at each other, raising   a dirt road of dust. Hear my wife shouting for me to leave meat out to defrost,...

 

Faith in Vermont: Of Ticks and Fear

“Mommy, is that a tick?” my seven-year-old daughter asks.  She’s looking in the bathroom mirror, pointing to a small black speck under her chin. Our family’s move earlier this month from the woods to the fields...

 

Faith in Vermont: Decisions, Decisions

Our family moved last week. In fact, it would be more accurate to say that our family has been moving for the past year. It all began with a dream: What if we lived with a little less house, on a little more land? What if we grew and raised...

 

Faith in Vermont: Journeys in Pediatric Dentistry

Like most people, I do not love change. This is particularly true if the change in question involves putting up buildings where there were none. I realize the need for economic development: More buildings generally mean more jobs, and that more...

 

Faith in Vermont: No Child of Ours

Last week -- the week when Alton Sterling was fatally shot by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Philando Castile was fatally shot by police in Falcon Heights, Minnesota -- I had my monthly book club meeting. The two events may seem...

Poem by Gary Margolis: Haircut

Haircut I don’t know what possesses me to ask the order of your family love. Children, dog, your loving husband? Save that picture   in its frame that says I love my dog. His perked-up ears. His over-biting jaw....

 

Faith in Vermont: Marching on Memorial Day

“Can we march in the Memorial Day parade again this year?” Out of nowhere, one of my daughters popped this question during breakfast on a morning in mid-April. Memorial Day was over a month away. We were all the way across the...

 

Faith in Vermont, California Sabbatical: Some Lessons of Sabbatical

I was not exactly looking forward to our family’s sabbatical in Berkeley, California.  Our five-month sojourn was a year-and-a-half in the planning, so my mind had plenty of time to run through every nightmarish scenario imaginable....
