Congratulations Jonathan!

I am fond of Yaw's directions.

And Jen has a wonderfully intimate take on the ten years before her birth.

Feeling much healthier today and looking forward to our make-up class, which I will remind you happens in the A.D. White House, Room 109, tomorrow at 10:10 AM.

Nearly making up for the missed classes this week are your blog entries. Here are some quotes at random:
"Sometimes a few of the older kids would get out their chalk and write along the sidewalks in pastel green, pale pink, "Milica voli Dejan" or some version of so-and-so loves so-and-so. I always got really upset because I couldn't read and therefore couldn't find out if anybody loved me."

"I think that this fear of taking the plunge stems not only from the anxiety of exposure but also and perhaps more importantly from a fear that words won’t do justice to the story, that something will be lost in translation from experience, emotions and impressions into words."

"Serious in that Hef is dying, but carnal and lively."

"Gaps of time and emotion must be left out as a self preservation mechanism."

"I am a very skeptical person. I take everything I see and hear with a grain of salt. Well, not hot chocolate but everything else is washed down with a grain of salt."

"i was the little girl who couldnt wait to grow up and wear make up. i was the girl who wished herself skinny. and my friends were too."

"Fence is a wonderful tour of the things you’d always hoped to find on the other side of the ten-foot pickets. It’s got borders and boundaries that don’t need to be transgressed because within them, there’s already a wild outgrowth of creativity."

"I've realized that I need to trust my instincts to discover what it truly is I believe, and allow those I trust to guide me when I need them. Constantly asking others for the "answer" can just hide the truth even more."

"Truth is like technology."
