|The Dance Known as the |
"White Man Overbite"
But I've come back to Bread Loaf to discover a campus in full swing, humming to the rhythms of summer: the fields are full of students are reading, the Barn is buzzing with teaching, and the porches are full of big-time imbibing. And the Front Desk Mavens are Mavening. So, for today's post, I thought I'd offer some pictorial representation of Bread Loaf in full bloom.

|The glow of the Litte Theatre at dusk, with rehearsals for Hamlet in full swing.|
|The poor quality of this shot--which is of the director of Hamlet--can be explained by several factors. a) the players forbid the photographing of rehearsal and b) there were 47 mosquitoes my scalp for an all-you-can-eat-buffet. $6.99|
|Another fine example Front Desk Mavening: we photograph the skin rashes of frightened little girls and send the photos to their frightened mothers. |
Wow. That is a totally accurate description but it sounds really creepy when you read it out loud. In an empty library.

|During my last summer as a student, 2006, a fellow Loafer coined the term, "Summer of Yes." This was a cool way of describing an attitude of personal discovery. By 2012, I've discovered pretty much all I need to discover about me. For instance, I've discovered that I'm about 30 pounds over weight, my Triglycerides are high, and I'm not really as rich as I thought a public school teacher would be. Therefore, my plan was to make this summer,The Summer of No. As in saying "NO" to: eating too much, eating off campus, and drinking too much. That lasted nearly 8.5 days. This is me, eating too much, in Rosie's diner, the morning after drinking too much. Let's hear three cheers for Will Power!|
