An excerpt from something I wrote about Karme Choling:
I lived at Karme Choling for four point five years. First year I hated it, ’cause it’s all grass and rolling hills and dirt roads…hard to skateboard, which I was just beginning to pick up in my childhood home of Boulder, Colorado. And I didn’t know anyone, and was stuck most of everyday being the only kid punk out of 100 very serious Buddhist people with whom I shared my new home.
Second year I loved it, ’cause I knew a ton of people at my school, St. Johnsbury Academy, and had fallen in love with Vermont, its land and people both hard and soft and natural and old-fashioned and real (for better and worse).
Anyways, I miss it…
