VDay edition.

NPR has lots of cool stuff about this and had a Valentine’s edition yesterday.
Got me thinkin’ of my own:

Unexpected arrival made departure unimaginable.

I also got to thinking about what Eve Ensler might be up to these days. Instead of walking, well, running so far over the line with my 15/16 year old students that I put my job in danger by reading The Vagina Monologues in class… I started wondering about what would happen if the Vaginas in Ensler’s piece had to write their stories in six words.

I really wish I could teach this text and use this exercise. Really. A lot. But instead I’m going to go with the spirit of Ensler’s work – trying to highlight the absence of women’s voices and drawing attention to the tragedy of violence against women.

Specifics to follow.
