Treleven in March

16 May

Although this photo indicates otherwise: it does seem as if the state is beginning to recover from Tropical Storm Irene. We were thrilled that Yuki Yoshida and her friend Austin visited us during March, to help prepare for lambing. Yuki is a graduate student in environmental psychology, Austin is an artist, both are very involved with Aikido. Don was hard at work on his new book Flying Blind, which examines family relationships (especially fathers and sons) through meditations during bat habitat management practices. Anais Mitchell, who grew up on the farm, released Young Man in America. One of the songs: The Shepherd, is based on Don’s earlier novel Souls of Lambs. Susannah McCandless was working on organizing a seminar for the Global Diversity Foundation. The farm was graced by a visit from Joan Lombardi and her husband Neville, who stayed in the Annex. Joan, who was here to give the Keynote talk for the Learning Together Conference, served as National Child Care Bureau Director under three US Presidents.  The Touchpoints in Vermont leadership transitioned to Robin Grace, a gifted teacher from Fairfax. We anticipate that the farm will still provide the retreat setting for the annual Touchpoints Faculty gathering.
