What Barbara Wein* found while looking through old documents this Christmas, or, What She Wrote:
*For 25 years, Barbara Wein served as Executive Director of the Golden Gate Council of Hostelling International-USA, based in San Francisco. She shepherded the Redwood Hostel into being, back in 1986. At the time she wrote this poem, she had agreed to caretake the hostel after a federal government fiscal crisis required the hostel to close temporarily (Redwood Hostel was a concessionaire of the National Park Service). She recently found this poem, and we are glad for it.
