Carolyn Newberger '63 has written a series of stories in The Berkshire Edge about finding treasures and pleasures in the Berkshire forest. Each installment is accompanied by photographs and paintings by Newberger. "You see, I am afraid of death. I learned this when I was a freshman at Sarah Lawrence College and I found myself in a car with a friend of a friend who looked at me and pronounced: “You’re afraid of death.” Taken a bit by surprise—after all, this was the ‘60s, not the ‘70s, when such abnormal proclamations would seem more normal—I knew that she was right, not that, at age 18, I had thought about death that much."
