Got to see Martín Espada read at the Care Center in Holyoke this morning and got verbal permission to take a writing class with him in the Spring, had Mia Mingas as a guest in my transformative justice class, then my anthropology professor with a reputation for being a tough writing critic said my latest essay was so good that she hopes I‘ll consider publishing it in some form, so I‘m having a pretty good day despite the rain and dark. ? ? ??
