Angwin Sign
About Angwin...
Angwin is a community of about 3000 residents on Howell Mountain. We are in a coastal range of northern California, about 70 mi. north of San Francisco.
The Village ranges from 1600 to 2200 ft. elevation, overlooking the scenic Napa Valley. It is surrounded by vineyards and forests.
Many Angwin residents work for Pacific Union College, a liberal arts college with a national reputation, or the nearby St. Helena Hospital.

Broken Songbirds

I remember seeing in sadness one day the broken body of a songbird lying on our patio. It reminded me that for several years we had listened for the short, sweet song of a sparrow who reported the coming of nightfall. Every dusk. Then, for some unknowable reason, it left us with our memories.
In a few days when time has softened the sharp edge of sadness over the passing of another broken songbird, I will start our cassette of "The Bodyguard" and fast forward to hear Whitney Houston sweetly sing once more, "I will always love you."

Charlie Brown Dies
A lot of Angwinites think of Charlie Brown as a PUC worker who had been on the job here for 34 years, and counting. But I think of him as the substitute father in the photo below. He and Pat took in "medically fragile" infants during the early months when they needed tender care the most. Pat provided the maternal healing, but Charlie shared in the personal sacrifices and cradled a lot of little people in his strong arms. A gift of sacrifice that went on for 37 years. More than 100 lives given a new start.
