What would these trees say if we were to ask them about global climate change, presidential primaries that last way too long, and sons who graduate high school at the ripe young age of 16?

That’s right: it’s a new chapter. After scoring in the top two percent of current American high school graduates on his GED, we now wait to hear if he will be welcomed as a member of the freshman class at NH Institute of Art this fall.

Meanwhile, my daughter did so well all year long in her advanced math that she doesn’t have to take the final exam. Now that’s sweeeet!

Be well. Be safe. Enjoy nature. And each other.

Regarding your opening sentence to this post...

Robert Glaves, one of the visiting writers at the residency, said, in regards to sitting in an apartment in NYC on 9/11 and watching the smoke billow out of the towers, "I looked down and saw a caterpillar still crawling along the windowsill."

That is sooooo cool. I am very sorry I missed his reading and workshop. But pleased you took a moment to share this nugget of inspiration. Thanks, Kyle!
