The warm exhale of summer is starting to invade Carding, Vermont. Tomorrow night, one hundred and two seniors will graduate from Carding Regional High School.
In two weeks, best friends Wil Bennett and Dave Muzzy leave for Costa Rica and a month of volunteering at a wildlife rescue center.
Wil’s sister Faye is uncertain what this means for her. And she’s not very good at uncertainty.
Most of us aren’t.
And Harry Brown is grappling with too many changes in his life. He handles most of his anxiety by complaining which, of course, accomplishes nothing.
This is the fourth segment in a Carding Chronicle that’s about change and uncertainty. We’ll finish up next week.
In the meantime, have a lovely 4th!
