A Winter Among Friends

From Awkwardness to Joy: Act I
December 6, 2012
The belated first post in a series about a uniquely Oberlin alchemy.
September 29, 2012
My summer left me wanting a word that spans millennia. I need to talk about my brothers and sisters who populate the biosphere, who live lives beyond human knowing and become sediment when they die.
Cardboard Box Season
August 5, 2012
I've been thinking a lot about seasons lately. My own year is really just beginning, as my time in Connecticut draws to a close and I prepare to move back to Ohio. It begins with a twice-annual ritual: packing cardboard boxes.
A Chickenkeeper Abroad: At Home as a Foreigner
April 19, 2012
I'm leaving Oberlin for a semester, if not a year, and it's got me thinking again about what it means to be home. Over Winter Term I found a home in Monteverde, temporary, but a home nonetheless; and before I get all maudlin about leaving Oberlin, I wanted to share some snapshots of a beautiful month.

Sunlight and Service: Good for the Spirit
April 13, 2011
Oberlin is famous as a stop on the Underground Railroad, and was well-known for the Oberlin-Wellington Rescue.

There's also a great multifaith service event coming up on Sunday.

Tales of head cooking in Keep Co-op's kitchen, plus the answers to all the questions you never thought to ask. What does a CLEC do? How many parades has the Keep Parade Master led? And just what is that cutout of Captain Picard doing in the walk-in?
Indecisiveness: An Oberlin Tradition
February 11, 2011
One famous Oberlin grad came to study neuroscience and left with a degree in American history through folk music. Can you imagine his add/drop period woes?
Winter Term: A Project a Day
