Food and cider pairings event in New Paltz

As part of the farm-to-table food and beverage boom, the mid-Hudson has been reclaiming its Colonial heritage as the cradle of American cidermaking. Local orchards have clearing acreage devoted in the 20th century to eating apples and replanting them with tarter heirloom varieties more suited to the production of hard cider. So it’s not at all surprising that local history and heritage venues are jumping on the bandwagon as well. At Historic Huguenot Street (HHS) in New Paltz, one of the latest projects is a membership group called the Old Fort History Club. Its third gathering, scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. this Saturday, September 24 in the Old Fort Visitors’ Center at 81 Huguenot Street, will feature food and cider pairings with Culinary Institute of America graduate chef Shawn Hubbell and Angry Orchard. The event will also include a talk on archival cookbooks by award-winning food historian and HHS Board member Peter G. Rose, author of several books on the influence of the Dutch on the American kitchen. Admission to the Food & Cider Pairings and Discussion event costs $15 for current Old Fort History Club members, $25 if you want to sign up now.

HISTORY

Burroughs’ legacy Manifold Nature: John Burroughs and the North American Review launch features panel at Vassar, book talk at Slabsides

W

hat we now call natural history or the biosciences were once known as “natural philosophy,” and it was assumed that a scientist would also be an author. Indeed, our local hero, late-19th-century superstar naturalist John Burroughs, was more renowned in his time for his writings and ponderings than for any sort of groundbreaking research. Nineteen of his most famous essays were first published, between 1889 and 1920, under the collective title Manifold Nature in the North American Review. That venerable periodical was America’s first literary magazine, founded in 1815 by Boston patriot Nathan Hale, among others. It ceased publication in 1940 following the revelation that it had been purchased for propaganda purposes by a Japanese spy, Joseph Hilton Smyth, two years earlier; but the North American Review was revived in 1964 and continues to operate today, printing works by some of America’s most prestigious contemporary Photo of John Burroughs by Clifton Johnson (courtesy of The Jones Library, authors. This month, the North American Amherst, Massachusetts) Review Press is reissuing Burroughs’ 19 essays as a standalone publication, with new prefaces to each essay written by Jeremy Schraffenberger, an editor at the magazine. To celebrate the publication of Manifold Nature: John Burroughs and the North American Review, the Vassar College Libraries will be hosting a panel discussion on Thursday, September 29 titled “John Burroughs Today: The Legacy of an American Naturalist, Critic and Philosopher.” Organized by the John Burroughs Association, the panel will include local academics Steve Mercier of Marist College, Dan Payne of SUNY-Oneonta, Dan Peck of Vassar, Susan Fox Rogers of Bard College and Harry Stoneback of SUNY-New Paltz. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in Room 208 of Taylor Hall, and admission is free. Schraffenberger will also be the guest speaker at a book launch event at 12 noon on Saturday, October 1 – which also happens to be this fall’s Slabsides Day, when visitors can actually enter Burroughs’ rustic cabin and writing retreat – at the John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary. Open House hours will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is free. The entrance to the Sanctuary is located at 261 Floyd Ackert Road in West Park. – Frances Marion Platt

By the end of the Civil War, Connecticut Yankee Charles Stillman had become one of the richest men in America, making his fortune in Mexican cotton, real estate and silver mines. He founded the city of Brownsville, Texas and helped bankroll an attempted invasion of Mexico by José María Jesús Carbajal. His son James became president of what is now the Citigroup bank, and two of James Stillman’s daughters ended up marrying two sons of John D. Rockefeller’s brother William. One heir of this 19th-century robber baron, Chauncey Devereux Stillman (1907-1989), owned a country estate ten miles northeast of Millbrook, called Wethersfield. Now operated by the Homeland Foundation, the 1,200acre spread is one of the largest farms in Dutchess County and is open to the public. Perched atop a 1,200-foot ridge in the foothills of the Taconic range, Wethersfield commands a spectacular view of rolling countryside that might prove a tantalizing discovery for your next Hudson Valley day outing Besides being an open-space preservationist and enthusiast for agrarian revival, setting up the Homeland Foundation in 1938 for the express

purpose of keeping Wethersfield and its environs rural in perpetuity, Chauncey Stillman was also an accomplished equestrian who loved driving horsedrawn carriages in the Age of the Automobile. Wethersfield today remains home to the Carriage House Museum, which houses the tycoon’s collection of beautifully preserved carriages and associated equipment. Stillman’s Georgian-style brick home is also a museum, furnished with antiques and displaying his art collection. It’s surrounded by formal gardens where visitors may stroll. But mostly, people go to Wethersfield

for its knockout views. Wethersfield’s scenic trails are open from dawn to dusk seven days a week from mid-April to midNovember; a $25 day pass is required. The Main House, Carriage House and garden are open from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from June through September, but advance reservations are required. Admission cost $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students 13 to 18 years of age and $12 per person for groups of three or more. Children aged 12 and under get in free.

Quilt plays BSP this Sunday

I

t’s a naïve, self-flattering assumption to believe that your art is a direct, gashed-vein expression of your experience, your larger world and your inner life. You may feel that it is, just because you want it to be true so badly. You deafen yourself to all of the cultural and aesthetic factors that intervene. On the other hand, it is a buzzkill to go all-in on that old ‘80s cokehead intellectual perception that art is primarily an insular game, an “inside” conversation between artifacts within traditions, and that art’s subject is always primarily art itself – that each new love song, for example, is ultimately “about” the phenomenon of the love song, its tropes, traditions and innovations; not about, say, love. Art is a mirror held up to a mirror held up to a mirror held up to nature, maybe, by the first guy. In Greece. Where does meaning live? Is it a property dwelling minerallike within the art itself, there whether or not anyone perceives it? Is it a controlled reaction between the intentions of the artist and the experiences of the audience within a shared cultural context? Or is meaning the ongoing output of a complex cultural process, activated when the work, loaded with all kinds of intended and unintended volatile content, drops in the pool and immediately starts gabbing and interacting with everything that has gone before it and that is going on around it: a dynamic vision of meaning that privileges the critics who “read” culture rather than the dull-headed makers, whose leaden statements of intention are pretty much irrelevant to what the work actually becomes and means. The art doesn’t even need to be great (though it helps if it is sexy; this we have learned). In the old days, it was pretty simple: The artist had a great idea and great skill and made some great art, and the critical apparatus jumped in to help expose and celebrate its greatness and advocate for its position in the canon, which the work would continuously justify because of an

Quilt

inherent and obvious greatness that goes boom on your head, all heads, all heads that are ready. This starts to get shaky, for me at least, with the dawn of 20th-century psychology and urgent questions not only about whether the artist gets to control what her work means, but also whether she should even want to, if Jung and Freud were right about where the real energy lives. Long before psychology, of course, some people believed that the artist is just the poor conduit: a vehicle that the art uses and then discards roughly when it is done with her. No art is great if it’s not just a little mad, if it doesn’t say some things that we can’t rightly understand. Who is to be the arbiter of such wildness? You know, I dropped out of Critical Theory 101 early in life, and so can’t get too much further with this; but I think it is a good thing that I absorbed just enough to keep my mind working on the problem. I am too sensitive to ideas. I get overexcited when I start to understand a single one. I worked with a songwriter once who was so sensitive to music that

she had to control strictly how much she exposed herself to. Otherwise she would be overwhelmed by all the freshness and energy and sounds and grooves out there, and feel herself drowned out before she gave her own frail and lovely songs a chance to germinate. She needed a protected and mostly empty psychic space in which she might discover for herself all of the things that had already been discovered. Mostly empty: She let a few things in, just a few, dwelling on them and loving them well until they told her everything. But the borders were patrolled with vigilance. I think that this is a fabulous life strategy: getting more meaning out of fewer artifacts. Throughout college and grad school, I was admonished to read constantly and read everything. (I think it was obvious to my mentors that I wasn’t doing anything of the sort.) Now, I am more of the mind that if you read a few very, very good books when you are young (I mean, really good, like One Hundred Years of Solitude or Writing without Teachers) and then think about them the rest of your life, you’ll eventually spin out all the other ones on your own anyway. But the idea that art is all style grabs and references, and that meaning is socially negotiated, as joyless as it might sound to an old Romantic like me, is a powerful one. Once you let it do its work of making sense of the culture storming around you at all times, it explains a lot. I do worry, though, about some of the young artists for whom this idea has always been so deeply assumed that they don’t even recognize it as their operating assumption. What are their prospects for growth? Don’t you need the Romantic myth if you want

transformation? In the last 20 years, I have seen the aesthetic of cultural “sampling” grow way beyond its obvious digital/electro home base. More and more organic and old-school bands playing guitars and banjos and garbage cans strike me as essentially meatware samplers involved in a complex and single-point-of-focus cultural acquisition. When you first hear the lovely neo-psychedelic band Quilt, you will be struck – astonished, I tell

The Orchestra Now performs this Saturday at Bard’s Fisher Center Terry Bozzio’s absurdly mega drum kit may seem at first a pure indulgence. and an anachronistic one at that: the final prog/rock one-upsmanship to end all one-upsmanships, delayed until long, long after the commercial heyday of prog. But to hear the artist explain it, the drum set’s rationale is actually completely reasonable. Bozzio wishes to play the drums melodically, and therefore requires enough strikable surfaces to play chromatic and diatonic scales in multiple sounds. Still, it is a massive spectacle to behold: a futuristic and spherical vehicle laid out to the specifications of the drummer bestknown for his work with Frank Zappa Jeff Beck, and the electropop hitmakers Missing Persons.

you – by their easygoing mastery of one very particular period, one geographically and chronologically fixed vibe. Call it the psychedelic folk/pop of the California of the ‘60s. Especially amazing is the way in which they cop the distinctively naïve vocal harmony of the period: the Mamas and the Papas, Moby Grape, the Byrds, of course, and (while they are seldom admitted into this discussion, thanks to hipster blacklisting) the Grateful Dead, whose take on the Bay Area vocal harmony thing on Workingman’s Dead is probably the most bizarre of them all. Quilt are naturally gifted arrangers. Their guitar noodles are clean and beautifully orchestrated in a way that reminds of the former locals Widowspeak, with whom they must be buddies (I do not know this for a fact, but I will take bets). The studio is their friend, and they are utterly at home in it, setting some rigid chronological boundaries that they seldom violate. To their credit, it never sounds like tribute or parody. Their voice might be instantly recognizable as an old and geolocated one, but they inhabit it fully. If there is one aspect of first-gen folk psychedelia that Quilt, Widowspeak and many others don’t quite capture, it is the goofy harmonic sophistication that crept into the original stuff via Tin Pan Alley. Quilt end up sounding comparatively monochromatic in a way more indebted to the Velvet Underground and even dreamroots bands like the Cowboy Junkies and Mazzy Star. This is not a deficiency, as the relatively inert, slow-paced chord changes enhance the dwelling raga feel that is a big part of their sound. 2014’s Held in Splendor is Quilt’s definitive statement of identity. 2016’s Plaza tackles the difficult proposition of change for any band that is formed so fiercely around one specific moment in time and space. The record is slightly more abrasive and electric, definitely a little more New York. It is coming unmoored in time as the doctrinal ‘60s-ness of the core sound starts to yield just a little. But also this: The non-historical basic musical properties of Plaza are better than before, the hooks shapelier and more concise, the grooves more buoyant, the harmonies as fantastic as ever. I suppose that some questions hover, regarding what a band like this is supposed to do when its growth can no longer be contained by its original referential premise. It is an exciting time, however, when the façade just begins to show signs of crumbling. Quilt performs at BSP with Mutual Benefit and Donny Dinero on Sunday, September 25. Tickets cost $12 in advance and $15 at the door. For more information, visit www.bspkingston.com. BSP is located at 323 Wall Street in Kingston. – John Burdick

6 ren (known to many as Uncle Rock). The idea was suggested to Warren by his friend and occasional songwriting partner Roseanne Cash, who is organizing a synchronous show at the Beacon Theater in New York City. “She asked if I would put together a Hudson Valley version,� he says. “So I joined forces with Family of Woodstock and reached out to these amazing musicians. They’re all passionate about the issue. So here we are.� SHV founder John Rosenthal said, “In the midst of America’s epidemic of gun violence that results in 90 deaths, over 200 injuries and a mass shooting every day, this powerful coast-to-coast concert and organizing effort will raise awareness and – very importantly – get out the vote on gun violence prevention in the November elections and beyond.� The musical lineup requires little introduction to locals, but it does speak to the Hudson Valley’s emergent musical diversity. Power-pop icon Crenshaw’s local appearances are rare. Pierson, of B-52s fame, has performed local on several occasions with Kennedy and members of Minstrel as her band, as has Crenshaw. Mike + Ruthy, the progressive scions of Americana and folk royalty, are all-butsynonymous with the music of the midHudson Valley. Proceeds from the BSP event will go to Family of Woodstock’s 24-hour Crisis Hotline (firearms are currently the mostutilized method of suicide), services for youth and adolescents (1.7 million children and teens live in homes with unlocked, loaded guns) and efforts to prevent domestic violence (in an average month in the US, 51 women are shot to death by their intimate partners). “Family of Woodstock is proud to be participating in the Concert across America to End Gun Violence,� says Tamara Cooper, Crisis Hotline program director. “The focus of this initiative is to bring awareness to our ability to reduce gun violence in our communities through education and prevention strategies such as gun locks.� The Concert across America: BSP Kingston, hosted by Family of Woodstock, will take place at 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 25 in the huge back room of BSP Kingston at 323 Wall Street.

Artbar Gallery hosts Andrea Shaut, Maiko Hata & Nick Herko When Allie Constant opened the Artbar Gallery, on Broadway in Kingston, she thought of it as an art gallery that would serve drinks and perhaps become a hangout for artists and artlovers. Before it even opened, poet Teresa Costa had talked her into hosting a monthly poetry series – still going on the second Thursday of every month at 7:30 p.m. Then along came her friend Brad Umble with an unlikely proposal to use the gallery as a venue for classical music concerts. While it’s still primarily an art gallery, hosting monthly openings on first Saturdays, the Artbar has now become a regular site for music events, and the calendar is expanding. The first classical concert, three months ago, attracted 55 people: a real crowd in that-size room. The classical series continues monthly, with concerts scheduled for September 22, October 20, November 17 and December 15. A survey of the audience indicated that they wanted jazz performances, which are starting up on September 23 at 8 p.m. with vocalist Maiko Hata and pianist Nick Herko. The Napoli-Shaut Sextet continues the jazz series on October 9 at 5 p.m. Constant says that she’s not a musician, but she played in her high school band. That’s where she met Umble, who has also left playing music for a career in music management. He locates and selects the musicians for the Artbar’s classical series. The next concert, on September 22, presents pianist Andrea Shaut, who will be playing works of Beethoven, Debussy, Gershwin and Louis Armstrong. That last one indicates some jazz crossover, although Armstrong was known to be a great lover of classical music and carried tapes of orchestral works to play in his hotel room when he toured. At the Shaut concert you can also buy subscriptions to the classical series, which continues with trumpeter Sage Boris (October 20), bassoonist William Beecher (November 17) and harpist Elysia Roman (December 15). In addition to poetry, classical music and jazz, Artbar also hosts regular evenings of swing band and tango music, with room for dancing, all detailed at www. artbargallery.com/events. – Leslie Gerber

Our thinking processes get short-circuited when a societal problem seems just too horrific to address, allowing unsafe conditions to persist. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve somehow got to alert, inform and inspire. The principals of the Rainbird Foundation, headed by Hanna Roth, have become masters of enrollment these past few years. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve inspired people to take a stand against child abuse: that most unmentionable issue alluded to above. They have structured teams and systems to address wrongs and injustices.

da Palmer and in others for his wild “living film event” Neovoxer, a dialogue-free experimental multimedia work performed multiple times in several cities with live music and sound effects. Pope unveils the first phase of his latest project, Synematika: The 3D Script, at the Shirt Factory on Cornell Street in Kingston on Saturday, October 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. Details regarding Synematika: The 3D Script are fragmentary and intentionally vague, but the accompanying images are alluring. This immersive sitespecific installation will encompass a 2,400-square-foot industrial space, all of which will be open for public exploration. Pope’s design is to use this Phase One installation as a script – or, in his own words, a Bible – for a future full-length film and a graphic novel. The nature of the narrative is not made clear, but the seductively withholding teaser text may provide some clues: “What if we can shape human destiny, unveil our true superselves and rewrite the story of our time? We Are Making the Movie of Our Lives.” If more incentive were required, music for Synematika: The 3D Script is provided by Pope’s longtime collaborator, The Dresden Dolls’ drummer Brian Viglione. Michael Pope, the Synematika website reveals, has recently completed “a 30-day lockdown: an intensive monthlong orgy of focused nonstop creation in the space. Throughout September he remains living in the space full-time to complete the installation.” On October 1, Pope will let us into his world.

ou can find her work hanging in the homes of some of the world’s greatest artists and on the refrigerator doors of men and women of whom you’ve never heard. The artists include Frank Stella and Alex Katz and Levon Helm. The strangers on the fridge were caught by her on the fly: the men, women and children whose lives photographer Dion Ogust’s roving camera captured in the pages of this newspaper for years. Ogust, perhaps more than anyone, has captured the visual life and times of the Woodstock community memorably and thoroughly. She has never limited herself to a single photographic approach; one day, she’s shooting formal portraits of Elie Wiesel, the next day she’s at the school board meeting. Ogust has followed a circuitous career

path that has just taken another public turn: multiple shows not only of her photography, but also of the prints and oil paintings that she has been studying and working on for the past eight years. Ogust grew up on Manhattan’s Upper East Side (“before it was what it is”). She was a 16-year-old high school student when she spotted a pitch for volunteers willing to work (“for free, of course”) at a weekly paper called Our Town (“It still exists!”). Her first assignment, she believed, would also be her last. She was told by her Lou Grantlike editor to take her Nikon F downtown and shoot Little Italy’s annual San Gennaro Festival.

The pre-cruise anxiety from her youth has recently reasserted itself. Ogust is about to embark on a new path: one on which she has worked and studied for nearly a decade. She’s going to “get messy” – start coloring outside the lines that photography virtually mandates. “As photography’s gotten more digital, I realized I was missing tactile things. So I’ve embraced printmaking and painting to fulfill my creative life by getting away from the desk and computers.” Ogust said that she has always had a love of painting and felt that she’d always come back to it eventually.

Before long, Ogust was apprenticing as a studio assistant, learning and loving the ways of the photographic portraitist.

Steve Clorfeine’s “Correspondence” exhibition opens on Friday at SUNY-Ulster

T

he Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery at SUNY-Ulster in Stone Ridge will host an opening reception on Friday, September 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. for Steve Clorfeine’s “Correspondence,” a curatorial installation inspired by letters and postcards written to him over a 50-year span. The exhibit will remain on view through Friday, October 21. “Correspondence” presents the work of 25 artists based in the Hudson Valley who were invited to create a work inspired by letters and postcards provided by Clorfeine, a performing artist, writer and teacher. Carefully saved in shoeboxes, the written pages and images became both Muse and material to transform. This will be the second iteration of the show first seen at the Westbeth Gallery in New York City last May. Clorfeine describes the show as “an homage to letter-writing, to telling stories, to mutual imagining, to staying in touch. Recently Almanac Weekly’s Sharyn Flanagan spoke with Clorfeine about the exhibit. How did you come up with this concept? I’ve been writing letters from about the age of seven or eight, and I saved pretty much every letter I received for the next 50 years. Sometime around age 25, I realized they’d be really good resources for writing projects. Then, about seven years ago when I was moving, clearing out stuff, I burned some of the love letters and then starting making collages. How did you end up enlisting other people

in the project? After I made two works myself, I brought the idea to five or six visual and performing artist friends and asked them if they’d like to make a piece based on these materials. I spread out hundreds of these letters and postcards and asked them to pick based on whatever attracted them, whether it was the handwriting, an image on a postcard, the color of the paper, whether it was handwritten or typed…at that point I knew I wanted to create an exhibition from this. When I received an offer from the Westbeth Gallery in New York City and saw that it was a 3,000-square-foot space, I realized I’d have to invite more artists. Were you surprised by what people did with your letters? Yeah… Most [of the artists] used a specific phrase, or a stamp, but others were

imagination and how we think about each other and the tactility of memory in that sense, the tactility in correspondence. I’ve always felt that I really got to know my mom through the many letters we exchanged over the years we lived on opposite coasts. Letters give us time to reveal things that just wouldn’t come up in casual communication. That’s the reflective part of writing letters. You’re in the present moment of time and space, but your mind is also really thinking about the other person and where they are in that same time and space. You can’t help it; sometimes it’s subconscious, but you have a visual image of that person. You just don’t think that deeply in e-mail, because everything is moving too quickly. And you know that the e-mail is going to move to them instantaneously as well. A lot of qualities move into letterwriting: the light in the room, where you’re sitting, the pen you’re holding and just what it feels like to move your arm and fingers in that way and seeing the words on the page as you create them. You’re not going through another technology to create the words on the page. There’s also something about handwriting that’s very direct and personal. You look at the handwriting, and the person is right there in front of you. Even if they used a typewriter, you get to know what kind of typewriter they use and what kind of a typist they are.

Did their work using your life experiences make you think about your own memories differently? It did. I’d walk around the gallery and see things that I’d never seen before. I’d see a phrase, or recognize the handwriting, and a whole flood of images would come to mind. Another thing I’ve been working on is this idea that sometimes you get kind of locked in your imagination with a specific photographic image or letter, and it superimposes something on what you might really have felt at that moment. Photographs or letters can cover up things sometimes, and if you’re too dependent on photographic images as what you think happened, is there a way to release oneself from the fixedness of that kind of impression on your memory?

How have people responded to this project? People have been very enthusiastic. I was doing a one-month residency at the Vermont Studio Center, and most of the people there were younger. Quite a few of them were really interested in what I was doing and asked if they could be part of the project. That surprised me. What was interesting, too, was in the exhibit at Westbeth Gallery, I invited people to type out their comments on an old typewriter. Most of the people under age 25 or so had never before put their hands on a typewriter! They were fascinated by it.

What does this exhibit say about the digital age we live in? Another thing I’ve been exploring is what happens when you write to someone with your hands, as opposed to sending an e-mail on the computer. Even if you type a letter, you still have to fold it, put it in an envelope, address it, stamp it and put it in the mailbox. And the person has to wait for it and anticipate it coming, or be surprised by its arrival. That person has to take it out of the mailbox and either opens it immediately or takes it somewhere and waits for a particular moment to open it. Immediately they’re thinking about the person who wrote it, because they see the return address or recognize the handwriting. And all these imaginative responses that are going on are really obliterated by e-mail. I’m not really making a political statement overtly about it; I’m making a statement about

You mentioned burning old love letters earlier. You used the ashes to create some of your collages, didn’t you? Using the ashes was almost accidental… my hands got ashes on them when I was burning some of the letters, and I wiped my hands on a piece of paper and thought, “Wow, that’s interesting.” I made a series of collages where the ashes appear in one way or another; for some I used my hands to spread them on paper, and some are dropped on adhesive paper. With others I used a brush to move them around.

Will there be a typewriter at the SUNYUlster show? Yes. And that sound of typing going throughout the gallery adds something to the experience.

Are you still making pieces based on your correspondence and continuing this train of thought? I am. I’m still working with collage, and also three-dimensional sculpture. It was always a long-range vision of something that could go on, never a oneoff. I think it’s very significant at this particular time in our culture to have an exhibition like this that raises these kinds of questions. But also, it just seems to delight people, and that’s the main thing. In the Westbeth Gallery show, people were just delighted to walk around and see what different artists had done with the materials or with the concept. I’m hoping there will be at least one more iteration of “Correspondence” after this. – Sharyn Flanagan “Correspondence” opening reception, Friday, September 23, 5-7 p.m., through October 21, Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., free, Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery, Vanderlyn Hall, Room 260, SUNYUlster, 491 Cottekill Road, Stone Ridge; (845) 687-5113, www.sunyulster.edu.

Words with depth Rosendale’s Widow Jane Mine hosts 26 th annual Subterranean Poetry Festival Sunday

“T

he Word Itself” is the theme of the 26th annual Subterranean Poetry Festival to be held in Rosendale’s Widow Jane Mine on Sunday, September 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. Curator Cheryl Rice says that putting the focus on “the word itself ” in this year’s festival reflects a departure from some of the previous iterations of the event, in which participants utilized sound and movement in their presentations. “And there is so much strength in language – especially poetry – that I don’t think it requires any kind of adornment. I have so much respect for poetry without all the bells and whistles that I really wanted to emphasize the words this year.” Instead of an open mic, Rice invited five poetry organizations based in the Northeast to send representatives to the festival to do whatever they wish within the parameters of the theme in a 20-to30-minute block of time. Participating groups include the New Yorkbased Albany Poets, Calling All Poets, Post Traumatic Press and Reality Beach, along with the Massachusettsbased Voices of Poetry. New York City poet Janet Hamill will also be featured midway through the afternoon in a spoken-word performance backed by her band, Lost Ceilings, made up of Mark McNutt on guitar, Bob Torsello on bass and Greg Feller on percussion. “The Word Itself ” will take place in the Widow Jane Mine as a benefit for the Century House Historical Society at the Snyder Estate, located at 668 Route 213 in Rosendale. Tickets cost $5 at the door (although as Rice points out, “That’s a suggested donation, not a limitation. Century House is a completely volunteerrun organization, so every little bit helps”). The event goes on rain or shine. Hamill has read widely at venues that include the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church, the Bowery Poetry Club, the Knitting Factory, CBGB’s Gallery, the Nuyorican Café and Patti Smith’s Meltdown Festival in London. Her latest collection of poems, Knock, was recently published by the Spuyten Duyvil Press. The origins of the Subterranean Poetry Festival date back to the late 1980s, when a group of Rosendale poets formed the Creative Space Co-op in order to have a place for poets to read and an audience to interact with. After the group lost its space in a former knish factory on Main Street in 1991, it presented the first series of poetry readings in the Widow Jane Mine, where the event has flourished since (with the exception of a few weather-related cancellations).

LAUREN THOMAS | ALMANAC WEEKLY

Poet Cheryl A. Rice curated the 26th annual Subterranean Poetry Festival. which will take place this Sunday at the Widow Jane Mine.

The acoustics of the man-made mine are a challenging environment in which to read, says Rice. “There’s quite a bit of an echo. You have to leave slight pauses, in the same way singers performing the National Anthem in Yankee Stadium do.” Some of the poets who will be reading are familiar with the conditions in the mine, while others are not. “I tried to describe it to all of them so they’re prepared. It’s cooler in the mine; you have that reverb; and behind the main stage area is a little lake, so you have that effect. The stones can be a little slippery to walk on, and occasionally you’ll get moisture dripping down from the condensation. I wanted the poets who are coming to read to know to enunciate and project – although we will have a microphone – and that the words themselves have to carry the message.” The audience is also encouraged to remember that the temperature of the Widow Jane Mine is substantially cooler than the surrounding area. A light jacket is recommended, along with sneakers or other non-skid shoes. Attendees should also bring their own chairs. While a limited number of chairs will be available, they will likely not be enough for the number of people expected. (At the last Taiko drumming event in the mine, says Rice, some 400 people showed up, without nearly enough seating for that many people.) People are welcome to come and go from the cave during the performance to mingle with others outside. Tables will be set up for each of the poetry groups, where they will sell their chapbooks or recordings and be available to talk about their organizations. None of the poetry readers are paid for their appearance. This is the first time that Rice has curated the poetry festival, but she has read at it on and off over the years. (She won’t be reading at this year’s event, in order to concentrate on keeping things running smoothly.) Rice is a member of

the Board of Trustees for the Century House Historical Society, and recently instigated the first in a series of four experimental workshops for poets. The next session of Random Writing at ArtBar, located at 674 Broadway in Kingston, will take place on October 12. Rice’s own work can be read at www.flyingmonkeyprods. blogspot.com. Rice joined the Board of the Century House Historical Society in January because of her interest in local history. The organization presents and preserves information about the local cement industry, the related D & H Canal and railroads, regional history and geological information. The grounds are open seven days a week from sunrise to sunset, with the museum on-site open on Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. from May through Labor Day (it will be open during the Poetry Festival as well). The Widow Jane Mine is located within

the 32-square-mile seam of limestone between High Falls and Kingston. An example of the “room and pillar” method of mining, it’s one of the few in the Rosendale area that is relatively horizontal. (Most mines followed the seam of limestone at angles that approached 90 degrees.) The Board of Trustees is enthusiastic about using the space as a performance venue, says Rice. “Art spaces come and go, and they’re difficult to maintain. But if we can make that happy alliance of honoring the history here while going forward with the art, it’s a good combination, and probably a viable one for sustaining.” – Sharyn Flanagan “The Word Itself ” Subterranean Poetry Festival, Sunday, September 25, 1-4 p.m. $5, Widow Jane Mine, Century House Historical Society, Snyder Estate, 668 Route 213, Rosendale; (845) 658-9900, www.centuryhouse.org.

Gilbert G ottfried, Susie Essman headline Woodstock Comedy Festival this weekend

T

he Woodstock Comedy Festival (WCF) returns to the Bearsville Theater this weekend, and attendees can expect a wild ride, based on the no-holds-barred reputations of the two headliners: Gilbert Gottfried and Susie Essman. Once again, WCF’s Friday-night entertainment will be a lineup of stellar comedians under the title Laughingstock! Karen Bergreen, Kendra Cunningham, Jaye McBride and Liz Miele will perform, hosted by Essman, who portrayed Susie Greene, the verbally abusive “wife from Hell” of Larry David’s manager for all eight seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The Los Angeles Times dubbed Essman “the most lyrical purveyor of profanity on television.” Saturday night, September 24, brings in a solo show by Gottfried, owner of one of the most recognizable – many would say grating – stage voices in showbiz. Your kids know him as the actor behind Iago, villain Jafar’s hysteria-prone parrot minion in the Disney Aladdin movies, but Gottfried has been one of the top stars of the standup comedy circuit since he first appeared on Saturday Night Live in 1980. Political correctness is not within his wheelhouse, and Gottfried lost a longstanding gig as the voice of the Aflac duck after making some tasteless wisecracks about the Japanese earthquake in 2011. If you go, be prepared to be simultaneously amused and offended. Veteran comic Eddie Brill will open Saturday’s show. The fourth annual Woodstock Comedy Festival continues its mission of “comedy for a cause,” donating its net profits to charities that aid survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking.

though the lineup of performers and pieces has changed, the group is still innovating, still delighting audiences. Mummenschanz has been to the Bardavon before, and must have liked it, because it just completed a three-week residency at the Poughkeepsie theater to workshop a brand-new production titled you & me. The show is about to head out on a world tour, but we get first crack at it: A special sneak preview of you & me will be performed by Mummenschanz on Thursday, September 22 at 7 p.m. on the Bardavon stage. Incredibly, tickets cost only $10 apiece! There will also be a special free preview for teachers and students at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20, which is also open to the public. How can you pass this up? Tickets for Mummenschanzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s you & me can be purchased at the Bardavon 1869 Opera House box office at 35 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, (845) 473-2072; at the Ulster Performing Arts Center box office at 601 Broadway in Kingston, (845) 339-6088; or via Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000.

chael Platsky, these sessions offer a featured poet and an open mic, which can sometimes stretch long into the night. Some surprisingly good poets take their turns at this lively, rowdy series. On Monday, September 26, the popular Elizabeth Gordon returns. Gordon crosses genres from traditional-butpowerful poetry to slam, that genre of performance poetry that has created so much interest among younger writers. Despite being more than twice the age of most contestants, Gordon (whose slam name is elizag) won First Prize in the prominent Urbana Slam in New York two years ago, and then placed in the national Women of the World slam finals. She has recently been trying out impressive new material dealing with current events in a non-polemical, poetic style. Bring your own work to this event if you like, and if you arrive early enough you can sign up to read in the open mic. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Leslie Gerber

Vassar Street Brew Fest in Poughkeepsie this Saturday

L

ong before designer microbreweries emerged to dot the Hudson Valley landscape, the stalwart patriarch Matthew Vassar owned and operated a brewery in Poughkeepsie. It’s how he made his fortune – which is also how he was able to establish a college for women in 1861, handing over a cool $408,000 in cash and a deed of conveyance for 200 acres of land on which to establish the campus. That represents a lot of ale brewed and sold, up and down the Hudson River Valley. Started by his father (James Vassar) when Matthew was still a boy, the brewery eventually grew to ship over 30,000 barrels per year, prompting the COURTESY OF VASSAR COLLEGE

The English-born American brewer, merchant and philanthropist – a descendent of Huguenots named Vasseur – was noted as one of the most prolific makers of beer and ale in the US. And that’s a good enough reason to celebrate a small part of the Vassar family legacy in our region. On Saturday, September 24, the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center will hold the third annual Vassar Street Brew Fest to mark Vassar’s contributions – particularly the ones from the family’s lucrative brewing endeavors. The original brewery was housed in a building at 12 Vassar Street, a location where the Vassar Brothers Institute theater currently stands.

The Brew Fest is set to connect the old and the new, with an array of artisan craft brews and hard ciders from local purveyors like the Beacon Aleworks, Beacon Brewing Company, Hyde Park Brewery, Mill House Brewing Company and Yankee Folly Cidery for sampling. All hail the excellent local brewmasters, without whom there would be nothing to imbibe! Schatzi’s Pub and Take 5 Deli will offer edibles for purchase. “And Mahoney’s is doing corned beef sandwiches and shepherds’ pie” says Andrew Burgreen, executive director of the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center. “And visitors can expect to meet Matthew Vassar at the event.” That is, an impersonator dressed in period costume will be making an appearance to welcome attendees and talk about his fascinating life. “Plus, we’ll have live music with TransArt’s Interplay, a group of young jazz artists and an art exhibit!” Brew Fest is geared for adults interested in good beer and good times, punctuated by the Valley’s rich history. In fact, visitors can take the historic building tour to get a sense of what Matthew Vassar and his family brought to the region. Admission for the festival – a fundraiser benefiting the Arts Center – includes a commemorative pilsner glass and the brew sampling. The Cunneen- Hackett Arts Center is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization. Check it out.

RVGA’s Harvest Hoedown and Local Food Barbecue

Y

ou’ve been to apple pie bake-offs, chili cook-offs and barbecue battles; when will someone think of pitting slawslingers against one another? There are an awful lot of different ingredients that one can shred into a tasty slaw, after all – a lot of them grown right in our region. Pilgrim, your search is ended: The first-ever Slaw-Off, judged by professional chefs (plus a People’s Choice award), will be initiated on Saturday afternoon, September 24 at the Harvest Hoedown & Local Food Barbecue, the Rondout Valley Growers’ Association (RVGA)’s 14th annual harvest-season farm-to-table fundraising blowout. The family-friendly event features fabulously fresh, deliciously prepared, locally grown food, plus live music, square dancing and lots of activities for the little ones. Besides painting a pumpkin or having their own faces painted, kids can create their own racecars from real surplus squash for the fourth running of the RVGA Zucchini 500! A highlight of this year’s musical lineup will be a selection of some of the original songs created from local elder farmers’ reminiscences through the SageArts-RVGA Unsung Heroes project, featuring singer/songwriter Kelleigh MacKenzie. Also on the live entertainment program will be Creek Iversen and Farm Friends and Rich Hines and the Hillbilly Drifters. After dinner, step up and promenade off those calories to the music of the Shoe String Band, with fiddler Liz Slade doubling as caller for the dance moves. The event runs from 3 to 9 p.m. at Marbletown Park on Tongore Road in Stone Ridge, rain or shine. The barbecue begins at 4:30 p.m. and dancing at 7 p.m. “Musicians, artists, designers, chefs and local food and beverage producers – all these people are coming together because they passionately believe in the importance of local farming and support RVGA’s mission and programs,” says RVGA executive director Deborah DeWan. Your ticket price – $25 for adults, $5 for children aged 6 to 12 in advance, $30 and $10 at the gate – helps the organization in its mission to promote our local agricultural heritage year-round. Advance tickets are available at six Rondout Valley farmstands – the Hudson Valley Farm Hub, Davenport’s, Saunderskill, Arrowood, Kelder’s and Barthel’s – as well as at Stone Ridge Wine & Spirits, the Bywater Bistro and the 1850 House, and online at www.rondoutvalleygrowers.org. Want to go but can’t afford a ticket? Volunteer for a minimum of three hours and get in free: Call 845-283-2444 or e-mail harvesthoedown@rondoutvalleygrowers.org.

ALMANAC WEEKLY

The power of dance Margaretville’s Open Eye Theater marks Jean Erdman’s 100 th birthday this weekend

T

he Open Eye Theater in Margaretville will celebrate the 100th birthday of Jean Erdman, modern dance diva and spouse of writer/mythologist Joseph Campbell, with three performances of dance and remembrances this Sunday. Former students and colleagues of Erdman will commemorate her vast and ongoing contribution to the world of dance on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoon, and there will be cake. A little history of Erdman’s co-founding the theater in New York City in the 1980s reveals her lifelong dedication to the form of dance. Born in Hawaii in 1916, her first exposure was the hula, the indigenous expression of lyrical movements and gestures. In school she learned Isadora Duncan interpretive dance as a form of physical education. She said that the two influences taught her that dancing is an “expression of something meaningful to the dancer, not a mere series of lively steps.” Later at Sarah Lawrence College, she continued to explore multiple interests in theater, dance and aesthetic philosophy. Then she met Joseph Campbell – a tutorial advisor who became her husband – and Martha Graham, whose techniques captivated Erdman. Traveling the world, she witnessed the traditional dance of exotic cultures like Bali, Java and India, an experience that informed her own

repertoire. She said, “By studying and analyzing the traditional dance styles of the world, I discovered that the particular dance of each culture is the perfect expression of that culture’s worldview and is achieved by deliberate choices drawn from the unlimited possibilities of movement.” An active teacher throughout her performance career, she opened a “basic training studio” where she taught a style-neutral, concept-based technique

that reflected what she had learned of traditional forms combined with anatomical principles. She described it as a technique that would “give the novice an essential experience of the artform, and in more complex variations create a professional dance artist with a completely articulate instrument capable of responding in movement to any choreographic impulse.” Erdman went on to direct the Modern Dance Department at Teachers College of Columbia University and was the artistin-residence and head of the Dance Department at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and later became the chairman of the Dance Department at Bard College. She served as founding director of the

September 22, 2016

Dance Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and taught there from 1966 to 1971. Reviving her early dance repertory and presenting it annually at the Open Eye culminated in the NEA-funded Jean Erdman Retrospective at the Hunter Playhouse in New York City in 1985, by which time the consummate artist was recognized as the true contemporary master that she had become. From 1987 to 1993, Erdman served as artistic director of an NEA project to create a three-volume video archive of these early dance works titled Dance and Myth: The World of Jean Erdman. In 1990, Erdman became the founding president of the Joseph Campbell Foundation and, living exclusively in Hawaii since 1995, continues as its president emerita. Amie Brockway, artistic director of the Open Eye, talks about the influence of Erdman’s early work still being central to the Theater’s productions. In 1990, summertime shows were held in the Catskills, where the company relocated permanently about a decade ago. “Jean’s work with dance and dramatic theater integrated music and art, an approach that was unique in the 1960s and came to be known as Total Theater,” says Brockway, who worked with Erdman for a number of years. “She was brilliant; what she gave to us has informed all of our works. And it affects the people who now work with us. The beat goes on.” This weekend’s celebration will feature a number of dance performances and talks. Nancy Allison, founder and artistic director of Jean Erdman Dance, a group dedicated to preserving and promoting dance repertory, will conduct an informal conversation. On the first evening, this will include archival videos from their 30-year-long association. Excerpts will show selections from Dance and Myth: The World of Jean Erdman. In a worldpremiere presentation on Saturday, Allison will mine the legacy of that long association by exploring the connection of Modernism and Post-modernism in a film incorporating archival imagery of Erdman dancing. Dancer Leslie Dillingham Freyburg will narrate stories of her work with Jean Erdman, also combining live performance with archival video. Livia Drapkin Vanaver will bring a team of eight dancers from the Vanaver Caravan, a company of dancers and musicians that collects and performs


traditional dance and music from many cultures. Other dancers sharing works in the vein of Jean Erdman include Gloria McLean, formerly a leading dancer in the Erick Hawkins Dance Company, a

faculty member at the Hawkins School and founder of LifeDance. She will perform Hawkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Black Lake, a dance using movement to evoke the night sky. Dance aficionados of all ages will

HISTORY

In defiance New book by New Paltz historians tracks slavery in the Hudson Valley

S

lavery: That was something bad that happened down South, right? And we gallant Yankees went down there to fight those awful Rebels and make them set their slaves free, didn’t we? Well, not exactly, according to Susan Stessin-Cohn. “Slavery in the North is a neglected topic,” says the New Paltz town historian. “People just don’t talk about it.” In fact, says Stessin-Cohn, both the Dutch and the English settlers of what was first Nieuw Amsterdam and then became New York were enthusiastic customers of the slave trade. Even the French Huguenots who came to New Paltz fleeing religious persecution typically owned at least one slave per family. “Ulster County was one of the worst [counties] in the state,” she notes. “There’s only one person so far in this county that I’ve been able to identify as an abolitionist. Even the Quakers didn’t want to let go of their slaves.” When Stessin-Cohn was working for Historic Huguenot Street about 15 years ago, she and her colleague Ashley Hurlburt-Biagini began to collect and study old newspaper notices seeking the return of runaway slaves in the Hudson Valley. Their intent was to create an online repository of information for researchers, and also to create a school curriculum based on the information. Though the runaways who managed to elude recapture long enough for their names and descriptions to be published were just “the tip of the iceberg,” Stessin-Cohn says, the two researchers eventually compiled some 520 such notices regarding some 607 individuals: “Each time we thought we were finished, we found another ten.” Clearly, slavery in the Hudson Valley region was not only widespread, but also no less onerous than slavery down South if so many people took the risky initiative to flee their masters. It was a story that both women felt needed urgently to be told. “At first we were going to self-publish, because we thought that this is so important.” But then publisher Steve Hoare at Black Dome Press took an interest in the project, and has been working closely with Stessin-Cohn and Hurlburt-Biagini for the past several years to bring a book to fruition. The result, titled In Defiance: Runaways from Slavery in New York’s Hudson River Valley, 1735-1831, has just been released and should be available in bookstores this week. Hoare describes the work as “a major book for our region not only as a resource for other researchers and students of the subject, but also for general readers who have an interest in New York State history in general and Hudson Valley history in particular.” Dr. A. J. Williams-Myers, chair of the Department of Black Studies at SUNY-New Paltz, who served as a consultant on the project, wrote the foreword. Though the newspaper ads listing the runaways were most often quite short and rarely even cited last names for the missing persons, Stessin-Cohn and Hurlburt-Biagini found distinct personalities began to emerge, especially in cases of individuals who fled captivity more than once, as the two pursued their research. “These were skilled, talented, creating, caring people,” Stessin-Cohn says. Many slaves were described as bilingual or trilingual, had mastered a variety of trades, or could play a musical instrument. Some fled with a child or children, or helped another slave to escape at the same time. “Each notice is a story about a person. It’s fascinating to learn about their life.”

“Each notice is a story about a person."

Beamish’s new Kickstarter campaign. The campaign, which started on September 1 and runs through September 30, is intended to generate the $25,000 AUD necessary for Beamish to produce Oyster, a film that will document the effects of climate change by following a family of oyster-farmers. Robbins’ original oil paintings and prints are available at her website, http:// juicyoysters.com. Oyster aficionados will have the opportunity to see Robbins’ oyster prints at the Starr Library in Rhinebeck beginning on November 5. Her paintings will be featured at the Cotuit Center for the Arts on Cape Cod, which has confirmed an exhibition in February/March 2017.

Unison in New Paltz presents Guided Shamanic Trance with Barbara Threecrow The Unison Arts Center will host Barbara Threecrow, intuitive healer, transmedium, spiritual counselor and teacher of Earth ways, who will guide participants in the ancient tradition of shamanic trance using 500-year-old Peruvian whistling vessels, bones, drums, rattles and the hypnotic rhythms of chants. The event will take place on Saturday, September 24 from 6 to 9 p.m. According to Threecrow, she will guide people through the ancient ritual using clay vessels that are finely tuned, combining sound frequencies that unlock sensory modalities not commonly known outside of shamanic knowledge. During ceremonies, she writes, the vessels create a combination of two sound waves of equal frequency that vibrate in various parts of the body, producing heightened awareness, euphoria and alignment of

The book reproduces the notices one by one and goes on to discuss what more is known so far about each escapee mentioned. For researchers’ purposes, there are also tables that group the slaves by various statistical parameters, but “We wanted the person that was fleeing to be center stage,” Stessin-Cohn avers. She already knows enough about several individuals to make them each the focus of a lecture, and now that the “overview” book has been completed, she and her co-author “have time to investigate” the circumstances of various runaways more deeply. “We’re going to start following some of these people” through other types of historical records, she promises. There’s a certain irony, Williams-Myers notes in his foreword, in the fact that the reason why many of these individuals have not been entirely forgotten by history is because their own oppressors preserved their memory in print. “Through the runaway notices, owners gave names and voices to the enslaved with their very detailed, descriptive personalizations of their human chattel. That personalization positioned the individual enslaved on the stage of history, not solely as one acted upon, but as an actor on it and in a role crucial to the socioeconomic development of Colonial America into the Federal period,” he writes. One cannot help but think of the metaphysical philosophy of the ancient Egyptians, who believed that the human soul goes on living after death so long as that person’s name or likeness is inscribed somewhere. You can begin to get to know some of these nearly forgotten people, so determined to find their freedom, by purchasing a copy of In Defiance: Runaways from Slavery in New York’s Hudson River Valley, 1735-1831 at your local bookstore. It is already listed on Amazon, or you can order it directly from Black Dome Press in Delmar at 518-439-6512 or www.blackdomepress.com. The price per copy is $25.95. The authors will be giving their first talk on the book at the Elting Memorial Library in New Paltz on Wednesday, September 28 at 7 p.m., followed by a reception and book-signing. – Frances Marion Platt

ALMANAC WEEKLY

NIGHT SKY

Pattern recognition Observing cycles of nature & the media

A

big reason why people observe nature is to recognize interesting patterns, like the cycles of the Moon and Sun or the shapes of constellations. Obviously, many patterns are so commonplace that they merit no discussion. City-dwellers expect to hear garbage trucks in the morning. Everyone expects long days in the summer. What more can be said of such obvious facets of life? The observer’s joy lies in uncovering previously unknown patterns lurking within these larger ones. For example: Sure, winter is not just darker, but also colder. But relatively few know that it’s also windier. Or that winter clouds are mostly large, flat, blank sheets that we view from below, while summer clouds tend to be puffy cumulus that we commonly see sideways. So it’s not just the ground; the sky looks very different during these seasons. Or rainbows: They’re rare during the cold months because they require sunshowers – mostly a warm-weather phenomenon that explains why rainbows are so common in Hawaii. A pattern may be tactile rather than visual. A scratchy throat or a few sneezes is widely recognized as the first sign of a cold. This reliable early illness signal was enough to make people in past centuries say, “God bless you” to a sneezer, asking for divine intervention in this upcoming battle whose outcome back then was never certain. But patterns can mean more than recurring shapes, events or disease outbreaks. In our modern era, a second less-recognized pattern is the cycle of media focus. Editors of mainstream print and TV news are very aware that “new scary disease” grabs mass attention; but they also know that they mustn’t milk that cow too often. Disease outbreaks continuously unfold somewhere around the globe, but if a “Watch out for this New Virus!” headline is presented every week, the public will start tuning out. Editors probably don’t consciously connive to run such stories using an 18-to-36month interval; it’s more of a professional news instinct. Thus, every two years or so, we get scare headlines about an existential threat like Y2K or a new epidemic. In modern times these have included SARS, swine flu, bird flu, West Nile virus and mad cow disease. They are real diseases; they’re not fictitious. Yet their actual health threat was negligible compared with the scare headlines that made these terms known to everyone and feared by many. By the time the dust settled, SARS ended up killing 916 people worldwide. Swine flu killed 30 people. Bird flu killed no one at all in the US. And mad cow killed 129 people globally. Obviously, they didn’t deserve repeated front-page headlines. The point is not that there exists an ongoing pattern of new viral illnesses – rather, that our awareness of them revolves around a media pattern of headlining epidemics,

TINA FRANKLIN

A pattern may be tactile rather than visual. A scratchy throat or a few sneezes is widely recognized as the first sign of a cold. This reliable early illness signal was enough to make people in past centuries say, “God bless you” to a sneezer, asking for divine intervention in this upcoming battle whose outcome back then was never certain.

and when one is aware of this pattern it’s much easier to assign a truer, more reasoned risk assessment. The media play a role in extraterrestrial areas, too. For example, whenever a new “hazardous asteroid” is first discovered and announced, the initial prediction of its chances of an eventual collision with Earth (e.g., one in a thousand) is always later downgraded to much longer odds (e.g., one in a million). Recognizing this “always later downgraded” propensity lets us assess it more realistically and with less worry to begin with. Here’s why: The initial rough calculation of a comet or asteroid’s orbit may reveal a trajectory where it may eventually collide with us. But with a fine-tuning of the data, a simple, interesting process unfolds. There’s only one refinement direction that can shift this object’s path into a more likely impact with Earth. But there are a thousand tweaks in which the object will miss us by an even-greater margin than first thought. After all, it’s a bullet meeting a bullet: lots of ways to miss, but only a single, very unlikely trajectory for a collision. New information always carries a strong natural bias toward producing a threat downgrade. The metamorphosis to a less worrisome appraisal, utterly unknown to most people, is nonetheless as reliable a pattern as the morning sunrise. In all areas, improved pattern recognition enhances the clarity of observing nature. It diminishes fear. It opens doors to fascinating gee-whiz science nuggets. And it’s just plain fun. – Bob Berman Want to know more? To read Bob’s previous “Night Sky” columns, visit our website hudsonvalleyone.com.

Just off Woodstock’s highly desirable Cooper Lake Road, this privately sited home, with its wooded-glen ambiance and a little rippling brook, is one of the prettiest spots in the area. The house, a contemporary with a definite Dwell-feel had a freeze up a few years ago and has suffered from deferred maintenance since, but for the right eye and imagination could be a showplace. Interesting layout and flow and potentially beautiful porches to bring the outside in. There is a sweet detached studio that also suffered from a freeze-up. It is NOT a short sale or a foreclosure, but will need to be cash or a rehab loan. It IS one of the best opportunities to come along in Woodstock in a while.................................................................................................... $299,999

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN . (Never known to fail.) Oh, most faithful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God. Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh Star of the Sea, help me and show me, herein you are my mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein you are my mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3x). Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal. You who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances in my life you are with me, I want in this short prayer to thank-you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank-you for your mercy towards me and mine. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days. After 3 days, the request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor is granted.
