Welcome to Quarry Hill's Blog!

Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT, founded 1946 by Barbara and Irving Fiske, is Vermont's oldest alternative community and at one time was probably also its largest. In the 60s -80s, as many as 90 people lived here.
It was and is visited each year, often in summer (but in every season, really) by visitors from all over the world.
We welcome interesting and creative people who are peaceful, bring no weapons, don't believe in hitting children or killing animals, and enjoy the beauty of Vermont and of themselves.

Most of us do not adhere to any particular dogma or religion, though many do find Eastern philosophy closest to our own thought (some of us are also members of the Quakers/Society of Friends).
We value the individual, particularly people who are energetic and have a sense of humor.
Visitors are welcome-- and prospective residents, too. There are some places for rent, others for sale. If interested, get in touch!
And, please follow the Blog and comment whenever you like!

"The symbol is the enemy of the reality, and the reality is ever one's true guide, true friend, true companion, and true self." Irving Fiske, 1908-1990

The Chilean Miners and Barbara and Christian

Barbara (my mother, age 91) asked me to send a message to Joya's former husband, our Chilean friend Christian Vargas Chesped. She asked me to tell him that she had been praying for the miners without ceasing and that she just "hopes and prays every minute" that they will be rescued safely.
Christian responded that "it seems to be working." They are being rescued, and so far, they are o.k.

IN that heart of all things which we all are, there is great rejoicing… I feel. Thank you so much, Barb and all the positive forces of the universe. Also, of course, the engineers and others who made this happen and the brave and tough miners who stuck it out and waited to be rescued.
