Faith in Vermont: An Ode to Bag Balm

Posted on April 22, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



I read somewhere that the best way to tell a person’s true age is to look at their hands. Thanks to the intersection of our vanity with innovations in technology and medicine, it’s now possible to camouflage signs of age in the body, face, hair, and teeth. But as far as I know, not much can be done about wrinkled, mottled, vein—y hands.

Hands may just be the real Picture of Dorian Grey.

Faith in Vermont: Use Side Entrance

By Faith Gong



In two weeks, my parents will move to Vermont from the town in Northern Virginia where I grew up, their home for 37 years.

More on that later; for today all you need to know is their new front door in Vermont needs work. Everyone – the real estate agent, the sellers, the contractors they consulted – agreed that the door should be repainted or replaced, and that the doorstep needs to be repaired.

Snowbuds: A poem by Gary Margolis

Posted on March 12, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Gary Margolis



The snow bursts our spring closed.

Crocus used to be a word for purple

spring. We’re used to calling flowers

this time of year, door stoppers.

Opening a door so we can watch

our steps. And not be still March-

shoveling. Every year we want to forget

spring arrives at the back door.

Where we lean our shovels.

Where there’s nearby bursting.

And not the snow budding.

Gregory Dennis: Town office plan – cussed and discussed

Posted on March 4, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Gregory Dennis



Former Middlebury town planner Fred Dunnington sent along photos taken in the tropics with the underwater camera he got as a retirement present this past summer. With the temperature on Monday night hovering at zero, selectboard Chairman Dean George said at Middlebury’s town meeting he was glad someone was enjoying warm weather somewhere.

Dennis Cassidy asked the moderator, former Gov. Jim Douglas, if he was ready to declare he was running for governor again. Douglas dryly quipped that Cassidy was “out of order on many fronts.”

Faith in Vermont: Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Posted on February 25, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



The other day, I took my four-year-old daughter on a long-overdue “Mommy Date” to spend her birthday money at Ben Franklin. (Long-overdue because her birthday was in July, which is what happens when you’re the second child of four). After our shopping trip, we stopped by Otter Creek Bakery for cookies. As I stood at the counter to order, my daughter sat at a table playing happily with the unicorn figurine she’d just bought.
