The people interviewed for this story give a sense of the variety of forms polyamory can assume. In her previous marriage, Charlotte loved someone besides her husband.
When I finally discovered the paradigm of polyamory, that really felt like the right fit for me. But she says she plans to before he finds himself pressured into conventional, and often patriarchal, modes of love and relationships without realizing that other paths can work, too.
I love my sibling. For Chris, those norms were instilled early in life. Chris, who was only 23 when she met her now-ex, stayed married for 20 years but always felt spiritual attachments to other men and women, even though she was never physically unfaithful. When Chris began exploring polyamory several years ago, after her marriage ended, she was surprised to learn how many of her colleagues were also polyamorous.

In this regard, affianced authors have a certain advantage. Seven Days asked a few Vermont writers about the creative process behind the construction of their own wedding vows.

Rosetta comes from literary stock: Daniel, 29, writes atmospheric horror fiction and is the author of three books, most recently the short-story collection The Lord Came at Twilight.
Heather, 33, is a freelance writer and editor for, among other outlets, the Vermont-based wedding magazine Sweet Violet Bride. Heather confesses that, as she penned her vows, her professional instincts to revise, revise, revise became a liability.
One of their favorite pastimes was creating comics together. They decided to participate in Hour Comics Day, in which writers and artists are challenged to create 24 pages of comics in 24 hours. The couple used the occasion to write their wedding vows in comic-book form.
Those comic vows turned out so well that they were included in the anthology 24 Hour Comics Day Highlights , and the couple copied them and distributed them at their wedding.
For this comedy set in , that medium is farce, wrapped around a bit of biography and clever dialogue reminiscent of Restoration wit and topped with a bawdy look at sexual freedom.
The farcical frame makes the biggest impression, resulting in a playful minute romp that calls attention to performance as artifice. With a fusillade of slamming doors and the quick costume changes necessary for two actors to play six characters, while the central character flirts, writes and utters witticisms, the play is more a meditation on theatrical deception than a character study. Behn was a prolific writer and an especially obscure historical figure who may herself have taken pains to hide her past.
The handful of facts about her establish that she worked as a political spy, was an early novelist and wrote 19 comedies that place her alongside John Dryden as a leading Restoration playwright. Anyone concerned that a play in which men wear wigs will be uncomfortably fussy can rest easy. The characters are thoroughly modern. Some, in fact, depend on expletives and ribald overtones that have a neat power to shock when uttered by people wearing corsets and brocade.
To the known fact that the actress Nell Gwynne had a long liaison with Charles II, Adams adds the imagined notion that she may have had a dalliance with Behn as well.
Gwynne was provocative and sometimes dressed as a man; add that to the temper of the times, and the YOLO personality Adams constructs for Behn and the story rings true. Adams never provides the real engine of farce: a sense that the action is escalating past control. If Adams creates a flimsy plot, she compensates with graceful dialogue, making the lines sparkle and the wit flow.
She flirts with a meta construction, superimposing the s on the s from time to time, the better to keep the audience aware of the cyclical nature of. Expletives and ribald overtones have a neat power to shock when uttered by people wearing corsets and brocade. Nothing threatens the breezy sexual confidence of Behn, Nell and the king, and no epiphany triggers it. Or, has plenty of kissing. Carleton develops these moments so the play transcends typical stage kisses, which are often mere placeholders for emotion.
She nudges these scenes to the edge of rapture and then lets the play spring its verbal trap, for Adams has her characters ever oscillating between flirtation and coy retreat. By allotting just enough time for the steely gaze or the giggled demand to show what a character wants — ink, money, fame, fortune, whiskey — the director makes each entrance and exit tell a swift story.
Her amorous come-ons generate bright sparks, while her bustling comic turns shatter manners without overplaying the jokes. John Nagle uses precise vocal and physical shadings to reveal the differences in class that distinguish King Charles II from William Scot, a traitorous spy and souse. His Charles has the world by the tail, while Scot has to do a lot of scurrying to stay ahead of it. Nagle then gets a fun turn as Lady Davenant, the theater producer hustling playwriting talent on her own terms.
The satisfaction with which she inspects her own leg, cross-dressed in pantaloon and hosiery, lacks only the selfie. In her other roles as servant and jailer, Rice is hilariously earthy and gets to run the biggest gamut of accents. Rice is nicely caught up in each moment, and when her Nell extols the s as a golden age, she makes a convincing case.
The show is more fluff than substance, but the farcical high jinks put the audience in pleasant anticipation as characters dart on and off in new disguises. The emphasis on artifice adds a layer to the play, and if we learn only a little about Behn, we are reminded what makes theater, in any age, so much fun.

Our wedding was the first event [at our home and wedding venue]. We cleaned out the barn for our own wedding, and that was an immense project. We grew most of the meal. We have a bunch of friends who are chefs and great cooks. Jean-Luc Matecat [now chef at the Inn at Weathersfield] came and harvested all our lettuce and beets and came up with the salad, with a maple-orangebalsamic vinaigrette.

They did a Mediterranean quinoa salad with apricot and chickpeas and cucumbers and mint from the garden, and a summery, lemony dish with haricots verts and fingerlings in a mustard-lemon vinaigrette with tarragon. Our friend Nicholas Laskovski of Dana Forest Farm came with his Austrian backpack and picked mint to make mojitos, for which the rum was infused with cucumber and mint for a few days.
Our Jasper Hill [Farm] friends gave us a bunch of wheels of cheese for the cocktail hour. We served it with jams and pickles and rhubarb chutney. It was amazing! I made the wedding cake myself. I froze all the components ahead of time, and Chris McGandy, who used to be a pastry chef, assembled it. It was a big, huge, tall wedding cake — bittersweet chocolate with chocolate caramel and ganache and candied pears.
On the outside there were edible flowers, too. I also baked some cheesecakes ahead of time. My blackberries were in season, so my friend went out to the blackberry patch and used them to make a star-anise compote.

Private event space located in Colchester just off exit 16 We had what we call a communitysupported wedding. One of the major motivations behind doing a potluck was that it was community-oriented and community-inspired — something important to them and celebrating us.
It ran the gamut from very fussy food to very simple, basic, comforting food. There were guests, and I would say there were between 40 and 50 dishes. I made a vegetarian tagine. We had two kitchen staff and we provided a full bar. Our server, Deb Wilson, made a carrot wedding cake. She trimmed the cake into a rectangle shape and took those trimmings and made them into cake balls. Our signature cocktails were inspired by our life together. We originally made a commitment to each other on November 10, , in Paris on a bridge over the Seine.
I recall telling the innkeeper to surprise us and make it nice. It was a buffet, and it was good. I do, however, remember very well what we drank on our wedding day. I was working at Daniel when I proposed to Noelle. And they were exceptional. I cooked dinner for Noelle in our Harlem apartment, and we drank the wines. For our wedding day, I was able to track down the same wines, and we drank those throughout the evening.

Needless to say, we were swimming in cake! The Clayfoot Strutters played swing music for us and backed up Rick Winston on accordion for a very traditional hora. Richard and I were terrorized by being picked up, sitting on chairs, and paraded around. A room full of elderly socialist Jews from Brooklyn my parents and their friends will do that!
It was a beautiful, sunny day but it had been a cold spring, so crops were a bit behind. I do recall that we served Southern ham. There were six cheeses, though there were many pounds of cheese left in the cellar unserved. They were all European, from France, Italy or Spain. The first main course was a mousseline of salmon and scallops with beurre blanc. All the wines were organic and from the Loire Valley.
We had a killer bed of asparagus, so that found its way onto our plates. We ended with a raspberry mille-feuille. One of our friends, who just loves to eat, said that not only was it the best wedding meal he ever had, but it was the best in his life.
It was hard to do for 80 people out of a home kitchen, though we did buy the stove and dishwasher for the wedding! Pick-up or delivery only. Vermont Heritage Roosevelt Highway Grazers. I made some 12v-ThreeBros The ceviche was a standout.

NET Open daily for lunch and dinner under a tent and ate and drank all day. Our wedding was at nine in the morning. We were babes in the woods. We rented out the Pearl Street Inn, a cute little bed and breakfast in a renovated old house. We were not drinkers yet, so we actually had a fruit-juice bar with fresh-squeezed juices.
A lot of people are still mad at us for that. Everything had to be made with organic ingredients. We were 21, and our wedding was the first either of us had ever been to. We were working on an organic farm at that time and were really into food. We decided what people would bring: a lot of little finger foods. There were little mini burritos, little mini fish cakes, things like that.
Everything was a parcel of this or that, tied with a chive. It took up a whole table. It was the best part of the wedding.
I look back and think of how nai ve we were about the planning. It was hard to find organic ingredients back then. The fact that everyone provided that food for us and participated to celebrate the start of our life together, I think, Wow, people must have really loved us.

When you think of a traditional food truck, it can get really expensive. For the past year and a half, Worcester has been baking pies, tarts and other sweets for friends and family and selling her wares wherever she can.
While in Southeast Asia, Worcester says, she took cooking classes from local bakers. Her pastry-van idea had its genesis abroad, as well. Usually filled to the brim with dozens of local, farm-fresh eggs in an array of colors and sizes, the cooler was empty. In my spoiled locavore life, grocery-store eggs are for dark days, indeed. Not only are they prone to withholding lays when they get cold, they also require 14 to 15 hours of daylight, among other accommodations, to maintain production.
Schatz said the always-busy downtown co-op sells 1, to 1, dozen eggs per weekend, and keeping the shelves stocked in winter can be a challenge. Schatz said he brought in more producers after the holiday baking season. Still, Rozendaal said fluctuating egg production is natural. Close to 3, hens strong, the North Hero farm — when things are going well — produces about dozen eggs per day, or nearly 1, dozen per week, according to co-owner Hugo Gervais.
Last October, Gervais said his hens suddenly stopped laying. He never got to the bottom of it, though he speculated that the change was due to some combination of weather, a change in feed and the shortening days.
Or maybe the girls got depressed when the sky went gray. After a few weeks, the hens bounced back. As this unfolded, the Gervaises were busy building insurance against another subpar season. In July, they broke ground on a new hen house. Gervais kept labor costs down by doing much of the carpentry work himself and with help from friends. And conveyor belts gently whisk the eggs away for cleaning and packing, which saves the farmers the labor of manually collecting the eggs.
The new building also includes an automated watering system. Previously workers had to water the chickens by hand, and keeping it from freezing was a constant challenge.
Little-known fact: Chickens drink a lot. While practices differ from one farm to the next, everyone contacted for this article agreed. Whiting and her husband, Bruce Hennessey, clean and refill the tubs with fresh water daily, and collect eggs nearly every hour to keep them from freezing and cracking. Whiting and Hennessey also light their barn from to 10 p.
In the winter, grain rations jump to a third of a pound per hen per day. Whiting said a healthy Maple Wind hen lays one egg every two or three days during the summer. In the winter, the frequency drops to one egg every three or four days. Now, after their three-week January dehydration slump, Whiting said her hens are back on track for normal winter production.
