My Turn: Going with the flow

I have come to the conclusion that life is nothing but a series of fits and starts and the best way to deal with it is to go with the flow. A story that illustrates that conclusion began on Sept. 11 when I was driving home from having coffee with a friend in Warner, cruising north on I-93 on a sunny day with puffy white clouds in the sky.

Firefighters team up for special delivery in Richmond

RICHMOND — Sean Elwood Goodale was born at 1:05 a.m. Wednesday, weighing 9 pounds, 8 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. But he wasn’t born in a hospital, or at the Monadnock Birth Center in Swanzey, as his parents Jessica Maki and Patrick Goodale had planned, and where his sister, Ailey Goodale, was born almost exactly two years earlier. Instead, he was born in the parking lot of the Richmond fire station, welcomed to the world by a team of five first responders.

Of a Feather: An autumnal mood

This is a time of year when I am not sure who is a lingering resident and who is just passing through. I keep thinking our local hummingbirds have departed and then I see another one. The most recent was a female ruby-throated outside of the lushly planted library in Keene. She was going from one red Salvia flower to the next and then decided to perch in a shrub where I got a good look at her.

Bramblings: Twice blessed

I have long been a fan of Shakespeare. The bard had a way with words that, in my humble opinion, has remained unrivaled. As a high school student, the words were sometimes confusing, but I had teachers that sparked a love of the words in Shakespeare’s plays and deeper studies in college opened up my admiration of the playwright. I sometimes wonder at my life choices, as I have seemingly wandered far away from writing and literature analysis, but some of my past readings have stuck with me for the long run.
