May 11: Brownies

Today's subject matter isn't natural or particularly seasonal, but when Kendall Merriam, Rockland's former Poet Laureate, arrived at the Land Trust office this afternoon with a pan full of rich, amazing, homemade brownies--"Katherine Hepburn's brownies"--which he served up with his grandmother's antique metal spatula, it was certainly a moment of light that helped energize us through to the end of a long work week. Kendall scrawled out the recipe for us in long-hand on a yellow notepad, and it looked like he was writing us a poem. Which, in fact, he was.

At work, grey Friday.
A plate of homemade brownies--
just what we needed.
