On Friday October 11, 2019 I encountered a bull moose off the beaten trail of some woods in Brattleboro. Earlier in the week on Monday, I had seen the same moose, or perhaps a different one, in the exact same location. Before I saw the moose, I had encountered a pile of his fresh poop, and marveled over how each piece was the size of an acorn!

They’re back! — Emma’s Revolution will return to All Souls Church on Friday, Oct. 25, at 7:30 p.m. with a concert to benefit the Community Asylum Seekers Project (CASP).
Pat Humphries and Sandy O, the duo that makes up Emma’s Revolution, were among the many musicians who performed for the sold-out Pete Seeger 100th celebration at the church back in May. They are returning to lend their enthusiastic support for CASP, whose mission is to provide basic needs and a supportive community for those in the process of seeking asylum in the United States.
