Common Light

20061224

Behind all our backs there is a profound, common darkness,
Punctuated by sharp eyes and flashing teeth, not of our kind.

Singular Light engines our vocation,
Compels us to keep many faces, for as long as we are able,
Bright in this central Light.

So vesseled as one, transiting as obliged,
We comfort and sustain each other,

So dissuaded from the dark, our only armor strengthens,
This common vital glow described by us and Light.

Tails From the Past

20061212

The Clifford Township Historical Society, Inc. has released the 2007 Calendar “Tails from the Past”. Each month highlights the integral part of farm and family life in which horses have contributed, from plowing fields, carrying milk and maple sap, to transporting families to social events.

Calendars may be purchased for $10 at the Village Hardware Store, Endless Mountain Pharmacy, Lenox Propane, Kavulich General Merchandise Company, and Dundaff Deli.

Proceeds go towards matching grant funds for the restoration of the Hoover School.
