On November 23rd the quilt raffle will be held for the Bodega Volunteer Fire Department. The quilt’s theme this year is water, seeing as we are in the middle of a drought. (Conserve!) In lieu of supporting the fire department, you could walk away with a beautiful piece of work collectively put together by twelve women. Raffle tickets are being sold at Casino.

Do I start by introducing myself?  I always looked forward to reading the Bodega Blogette.  Bodega, as we all know, is an incredibly close knit community; in the same respect welcoming to passerby’s. I know my close acquaintances and even closer friends work to make everybody from the inside and outside alike feel not just comfortable, but furthermore strive to provide a sense of home away from home.

The Bodega Red Potato continues its slow and steady comeback with support of community enthusiasts, Slow Food promotion and at last, commercial farmers. You may recall that Bodega Land Trust helped Slow Food with the initial potato rescue, by uncovering the whereabouts of some of the few remaining Bo-dega Red Potatoes several years ago.

I hope everyone had the opportunity to appreciate the outside lights that were on for several nights at St. Teresa’s this last week.  They were spectacular; the church looked like a beautiful sculpture on the hill throughout the night.  It appears they were being tested out, I regret I didn’t get photos.

As this Bodega morning begins, I bring breakfast out to our horses, and the melodies of the song birds surround me, and the wild flowers are bursting out of the earth.

Well, he was born just outside of our town, and ended up becoming somewhat of a wanderer. As much as he was a loner, he also wanted to interact with others. Eventually he met Elizabeth and Greg (when they were running the bar at the Casino), and they agreed that he could stay at their place for a while.

Earlier today I was in a place where I very rarely go, told to wait for someone whom I don’t know, picked up a paper I rarely read, and opened it to the middle, and there’s a two page spread on our Mary Biggs written by Craig Davis.

Several weeks back in the middle of the night I woke up and “Resolutions” revealed itself as the topic of this month’s column. So, it’s been the focus of my observations, and its trail uncovered some experiences I thought I’d share.

The frosts have arrived, we’ve tuned the clocks to the light of the winter season, and we’re now forging ahead into the last month of 2013. The daylight draws longer shadows, shorter days, and reflective thoughts. I ponder on the events of the world, our country, and Sonoma County. There are positive as well as harmful impacts, and they ripple through my considerations, daily life, and in my humble observation, they affect our little community as well.

Our little valley has some amazing ways it reflects light during sunrises and sunsets. October was particularly spectacular, and the sun filled days and warm breezes were much appreciated!

Wow ! The B50 event appeared to be a great success in bringing lots and lots of attention to our little Bodega!  I asked Dan Arendt (B50 Event Coordinator) a few days ago what financial proceeds (as a result of this fundraiser) would be made to the Bodega Land Trust & the Rancho Bodega Historical Society, and he didn’t know. Well, maybe the B50 expenses consumed the financial contributions, but what the event did raise was a lot of exposure of our local talent, creativity, and our home grown Bodega Red.

Last month I shared about Peter Stull losing his home to a fire that was started by a simple & forgotten candle. The outreach of our community to help Peter has been tremendous.  Peter stopped by the other day, and told me he’s decided on a small portable place, like our local Ward Hensill’s works of art.

Feature Story:  

Just a few short weeks ago, one Saturday morning, a Bodega man reached for his coffee next to his bed, inadvertently knocked it over. What he didn’t notice, was the lit candle next to it, that also fell over.

The theme for this this month’s edition is: Who We Value – Family, Friends & Community. Some of the topics I want to cover, well, it’s a bit of a circuitous route in finding passage back to the theme, but as with all journeys, it begins with the first step, so, here we go.
