So here I am, in Vermont and back at Bread Loaf. I'm happy to see friends and familiar faces and to have the structure of attending classes and serving meals (I have a job as a waitress in the dinning hall). It's been a rainy first 24 hours, but perfect weather for building a roaring fire in the 5-foot wide fireplace. Classes start tomorrow.
I feel ready to get to work partly because I had a week in the Adirondacks visiting my dear Uncle Louis and Aunt Jani and spending time with old friends. It's always a fun and very beautiful place to be.
In the interest of brevity, here are two highlights from the week.
