Evan Hazard: Critter sightings, mostly from the patio
Supped on the patio Sept. 3, perhaps the second time this year I ate all three meals out there.* I’d have breakfasted inside if I’d been up at a respectable hour, but slept in, then made tea, and worked on the laptop before eating. It was 70degrees out when I finally ate just...

Evan Hazard: Verbal harassment in dreamland
I wrote you about “daymares” in May 2012. Of course, I also dream at night, sometime pleasantly and sometimes not, but seem to have more memorable dreams during afternoon naps. Rarely do I get here soon enough to record many details. A well known literary description of a nightmare...

Evan Hazard: ‘. . . on a rainy Sunday afternoon’
Now in his ninth decade, this prof has witnessed many scientific changes. For me, the most notable have been our learning the structure and operation of DNA molecules, and that plate tectonics has driven continental drift for eons, planetary systems are common, and our 13 billion...

Evan Hazard: The altos (et al.) that bloom in the spring
The annual spring concert of the Bemidji Chorale was Sunday May 18 at 7 pm. At 6:40 there were still several empty seats in the middle of the front row of BSU’s, Hobson Union Ballroom. It was close to standing room only when the concert started. My seat put me right behind conductor...

Evan Hazard: ‘. . . dependable, prompt, and reliable,’ but forgetful
At the end of spring semester at BSU, departments housed in Sattgast Hall hold a scholarship recognition ceremony in the building’s largest classroom to recognize students who have been awarded scholarships for the next academic year. I usually go because the faculty like to have...

Evan Hazard: A non-threatening visual quirk
The first time, it was daytime and I was alone. I don’t recall if it was indoors or out, or the season, and I neglected to write anything down. There was nothing else odd happening that I could relate it to. Also, it was well before 2010, because I often talked with Elaine about...

Evan Hazard: The Hebrew Bible’s most difficult book: The Book of Job
My folks got “The New Yorker” and we/I have subscribed for most of our years in Bemidji. Those familiar with it know it’s not just about New York City. Its lists of events and restaurant reviews are, and some articles are, but many are about other places or general topics....

Evan Hazard: Deerwood meals and ‘Whitby Tweed’
Last you heard, I’d had my Nov. 25 appointment at University of Minnesota Hospital Dental Clinic and the “beef curry Kandy (my daughter-in-law) made when we got back to Stuart and Carol’s was fine.” Tuesday, we drove back to Deerwood, stopping en route at a Chinese restaurant...

Evan Hazard: Eating our way to and in Minneapolis
Friday Nov. 22, the plan was that I follow Kandy’s emailed directions to Brian’s and her parsonage in Deerwood, pick up Kandy, and drive her to Stuart and Carol’s Twin Cities house before dark. I headed out later than expected (as usual), turned off 371 in Brainerd one stoplight...

Evan Hazard: An epiphany in G major and the music inside us
To me, all Bemidji Symphony Orchestra concerts are a must, but I really looked forward to “Homecoming Celebrations” on Nov. 10. I’m a Dvorák fan, and the concert included two favorites: his Symphony No. 8 in G and his ‘Cello Concerto in b. As many of you would expect, I...
