Notes galore, so let’s get to it: Keith Albert writes that his wife, Pamela, is shifting jobs to use her M.P.H. degree (in epidemiology) to work at the University of Southern Maine. The Alberts spend their time shuttling their two boys to ice hockey games and hitting the slopes at the Loaf and Sunday River, where they’ve run into Ethan Spencer ’94, Justin Van Til ’95, and Matt Morse ’98. Keith is also in touch with Matt Russ, Mark Johnson, Colby Wyatt, Karen Bossie and Chad Sisson, Chuck and Betsy Low Bowen, Mark Porter ’95, Kevin Rice, and a few other Mules too. * In May Tatum Calder Sinclair, Caroline Bird, Kim Turner, and Dori Morrison Galvin planned to take on Ragnar Cape Cod, a 12-person, 190-mile overnight relay race from Hull to Provincetown. Dori lives in Boxborough, Mass., with husband Chris and two children, Troy, 8, and Dorothy, 6. * Jen Pope married Bill Michie in Dover/Portsmouth, N.H. Amie Sicchitano Taylor was her maid of honor, and Colby attendees included Dori Morrison Galvin, Courtney Sullivan Homer, Tammy Smith Wilkerson, Abby Smith Derrig, Ben and Alex Kean Strong, Brad Sicchitano ’99, and Jen’s brother, Greg ’99 (obviously). As an aside, I think most of those people were in my freshman English class with Charlie Bassett. Anyhow, Jen and Bill live in Washington, D.C., where Jen works on reproductive health issues world-wide. On a recent trip to Ethiopia, Jen saw Patty Benson Bechard during a layover in Frankfurt. Patty recently moved there with her husband and two sons. * Chris McMath moved from New Hampshire to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains (Lenoir, N.C.), where he joined a new pediatric practice in October 2013, then welcomed twin daughters, Molly and Emma, on March 14, 2014. Move, job, baby: the natural hat trick. Nice! * Speaking of hat tricks, my second favorite Colby women’s hockey player of all time, Sarah Gelman Carney, met Doris Kearns Goodwin ’64 April 12, scoring a nice photo on a deftly executed “Gelman-style attack” (her words) in the Charlotte airport. Sarah was on a family trip to Hilton Head Island. * At the end of 2013 Amy Darling consolidated her clinical acupuncture practice to Seattle and began devoting more time to watercolor painting. Amy began practicing Zen meditation in Waterville during her last year at Colby, in 1996, and Zen practice has remained a foundation of her life, with regular meditation and silent retreat informing her work, her art, and her life. For the past two years she has been studying Mountains and Rivers Sutra, a lyrical exposition by Zen master Eihei Dogen (12001253) on the nature of the Buddhist path and awakening. Inspired by this study, she has been painting from photographs taken during years of Cascade mountain hikes. In July her work will be displayed publicly for the first time at Tahoma One Drop Zen Monastery on Whidbey Island, Wash. There will be a more extensive show at Miro Tea in Ballard, Seattle, in November. * And finally, Alex Chin works for a beer company. He says his job is awesome. I think he’s probably telling the truth. * Keep the notes coming, please.
