Second Period

Second period, an inter learned a running pry today. The canoe effortlessly and almost magically turned around, silently and with grace. A few hundred feet away, a senior Bear jibed a sailboat for the first time. A simple breeze was enough to help the boat quickly change direction. Just up the camp’s back road, a […]

Freelance COVID parenting spring 2022

It’s so wonderful to know for sure – and finally – that old women get ignored. By pretty much everybody. I like knowing for two reasons: One, I’m not paranoid, it’s real. Two, you hear interesting things when you’re being ignored. I was sauntering through the Village the other day and decided on a bagel […]
