A major league pitcher sat on one end of a couch at a downtown hotel earlier this month, turning toward an inconspicuous 20-year-old on the other side. “I have a question,” said C.J. Wilson, the Los Angeles Angels left-hander. “How convinced were you getting into the car for the first time on the track that this was a good idea?” Wilson - sitting over a plate of bacon and eggs during a break in his team's series with the Orioles earlier this month - looked to the driver on his professional race team.

MILLVILLE, N.J. - The 17 tree lovers shuffled, bent over, fighting their way through the low-hanging vines and branches, resplendent in their vapor trail of insect repellent, swamp and sweat. They were on the hunt, looking for the biggest, oldest trees in the Northeast, and on this day at least, New Jersey - known more for its turnpike than its timber - seemed a likely place to look. "Holy mackerel!" a voice bellowed from up ahead. "Look at the size of this black gum!" Every old tree, no matter where it has taken root, is a mystery story, a testament to time and perseverance wrapped in the riddles of growth rings and scarred bark.

In the hands of Don Friel, glass seems to have a life of its own.Poking a long, stainless steel rod into Wheaton Village's huge furnace, he extracts a ball of molten glass, which glows an ominous orange. (Wheaton Village is a working museum in Millville, N.J.) Left alone, the "gather" would droop sloppily, so as Mr. Friel works, he gently rocks the rod back and forth, like a lacrosse player cradling a ball.To give color to the glass, Mr. Friel dips it into a pan of colored glass chips, as though he were layering an ice cream cone with candy sprinkles.
