Odd to see peonies from my garden and the card we all signed on the front page of the paper today. It was my dear friend Diane Wortis who suggested the flowers – so obvious, but I think we were all in shock on Monday. Diane actually saw the arrest of Henry Dozier as she drove to work at the Clark Institute on Monday morning, and says it was frightening and incongruous to see ten policemen with guns drawn in a parking lot in the Berkshires. These things, we all feel, just don’t happen here. But they do.
