Faith in Vermont: Once More to the Water

Posted on August 25, 2015 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



“It only gets really hot in Vermont for about one week every summer.”

That’s what we tell ourselves here in order to make ourselves feel better about Vermont’s widespread lack of central air conditioning.

Faith in Vermont: In Which I Butcher Some Chickens

Posted on August 11, 2015 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



“So, what does one wear to butcher chickens?” I asked my friend Courtney over the phone. We were confirming our plans for the following night; I was focusing on the priorities. (The answer, in case you were wondering, is: anything that you don’t mind coming into contact with blood, guts, feathers, and – above all – that chicken smell.)

and not here among (oh, I’m saying it)

      the world of Vermont’s girosoles.

Faith in Vermont: Changing My Mind

Posted on June 30, 2015 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



By: 

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? Isn’t it natural that the ideas expressed in a column should evolve along with the human writing that column?
