So in three weeks from today I go back to work, and a week after that the students return. Gulp! I had a "back to school" dream this morning wherein the kids ignored me and proceded to trash my room. That dream will be daily reality in a month.
Driving down Eutaw two days ago I saw one of my former girls from Booker T. carrying a baby. She's all of 15 now. I also saw Nat Turner and the Gardner and some other Booker T. kids at Art Scape. Hope they're all well and that the West Side avoids the calamitous upheavals over East of late. That's where I teach now.
