Right now, all my time & energies are wrapped up in this:
My students will be sharing their stories and poems about their experiences with arrest and incarceration at this event on Thursday night. It will be incredible (we do it every year--it always is), but let me tell you it is so much work. Between preparing them, arranging transportation, calling parents/guardians, rehearsing their stories, and promoting the event (if you live in the Bay Area, come!), there isn't much time for anything else.
Except that 6 week grades are due today and I am working every night this week.
Wish me grace and luck and a few extra hours each day. :)
