Re: “State Officials Rake in Errant Leaf People

So sad that such a charming tradition is gone for no good reason.
Pinney is right..we do need to put a smile on peoples faces. Now there will be a few less. What a shame!

Re: “05401PLUS Magazine Takes Long View of Burlington

Great to see coverage of 05401PLUS, but I'd like to add that it also acts as a public forum, albeit written, for all the things we should be seeing discussed in the media, in public forums, and in our neighborhood NPAs... and aren't. We need a venue and leadership for discussing public investment issues, civic development, housing and commercial enterprises that change and form the city, direction of our school, transportation impacts, etc. that aren't held by one voice and with the intent of one outcome. We need more than hearings, we need a public conversation and the media has a role in this. To think that journalism is only investigative (re. VTDiggers presentation on Tuesday this week) or current events misses the point.

05401PLUS may be hard to read for some and one-sided at times, but I believe it is the only publication that is addressing our human and social impact on the physical environment and questioning our habits of place-making. We need this sometimes awkward, sometimes beautiful endeavor. Too bad more people aren't reading it.

Re: “Kirtan Rabbi Brings Chant to Ohavi Zedek

Hi. This is the Kirtan Rabbi. Thank you for such a lovely article, Ken! Just a correction: the video takes place at Bnai Jeshurun synagogue in NYC, albeit there are a lot of Romemu people there!

Re: “Hungarian Play About Surveillance Is Eerily Prescient

Great article, except for the mistake that it is not the company's first time in the US. Peasant Opera performed at the Lincoln Center Festival in 2009 to great critical acclaim.

Re: “Dykes to Watch Out For: Pièce de Résistance

So welcome!! to see this. I think Alison Bechdel makes the best drawings, well comparisons are odious, but those drawings are so specific and witty about the people I see around, the haircuts, the actual drawing of the faces, just wildly good. Plus the political and verbal content, dynamite. Is this just a one time thing or will there be more?? I also like Peter Schumann's visual stuff, posters and more. So clear and legible, dare I say formal elements are not ignored. but the details, that spunky little girl, they all slay me. I feel much better in these dark days.
When i taught Drawing at Johnson State I had my classes look at her work right along with Van Gogh, Daumier, Titian, Goya, the Alice in Wonderland drawings, by Sir John Tenniel, Faith Ringold,Clark Derbes, and and on into the ocean of fabulous visual art. Thank you Pamela Polston, the whole paper is a treasure, much better than what i can find in Amherst, MA area where our daughter lives.

Re: “Maiden Vermont Makes Sweet Harmony

What wonderful people Jerry and Lindi are- talented, committed, and welcome additions to our area (actually, Jerry is a Vermont native)! They have done so much to make our lives more enjoyable through Maiden Vermont, the Middlebury Wind Ensemble, and the many other areas of our existence that they participate in. Nice article!

Re: “Allan Day's Heroic Save of a Historic Piano

Thank you, Mark.
It is scary and suspenseful to be working hard and carefully on each aspect of the process without a clue of how the instrument will sound. It is with blind faith that the result will be beautiful. When that desire is finally achieved it is beyond what words can describe.
In large part this piano owes its unique sound to the acoustical setting of this beautifully restored home. This place is and will continue to be Burlington's musical gem.

Re: “Allan Day's Heroic Save of a Historic Piano

What a great article! How interesting to look into the world of traditional pianos and those that care for them. Piano rebuilders are what we now call "makers"- those who find worth in working with ones own hands. Mr. Day rises to a level of excellence that transforms wood and metal into an instrument that literally vibrates the soul of those who listen to it. Congratulations to Allan Day and his collection of caring, philantrophic citizens.

Re: “Bess O'Brien Doc Gives Voice to Eating Disorders

Gob bless you all. I struggled for 20 yrs with bullemia. Up to 12 times a day. Im lucky to be alive, and even 1 year later after finally overcoming this disease i found out i was 29 weeks pregnant with my son. I was 32 yrs at the time and my husband snd i together since i was 20. Told at 21 yrs ild i couldnt have children and i wanted 15 kids i told my husband. Still wished i couldve. But god knew what he was doing. I was able to have one more son . Both healthy beautiful healthy adults now whom i adore . Im 55 and know that evetyday is a blessing here on earth. Everyday is still a struggle but i just have to remind myself of the hell i lived everyday throwing up and hiding it and at 12 times a day it was hard. Most days i just ate everything in sight and threw up all day long. Its caused allot of health problems from heart attack at 40 to always having dental work done. To hating myself and hoping i would die everyday if i couldnt stop. How did i recover!? I almost died . I had 3 bleeding ulcers and didnt know it. They cut me open and now have a 12 inch scar on my stomach in 1991 and couldnt move out of bed for 3 weeks. That gave me my first break. All the rehabs i was in didnt help at all. I was in 4 different ones. It has to come within i think. Or i was just so tired of the shame i felt. I couldnt go on anymore. It feels so good every morning to wake up and know im not going to go through that hell everyday. My boys when born i think gave me allot of strength also. I didnt want to miss one day of seeing them grow times of my life were and still are with my family. Cant wait till my grandchildren come.! God bless . Know it can be overcome. I didnt think it was possible but it truly is... My heart goes out to you all.
