Announcements and week five reports
only reinforce competition to be the best
leaders of the world need to confess
cuz those most ostracized need some redress
while life should focus on having less
so we can recognize that everyday the lessons learnt make up the test
we need to bridge the crest
in order to elevate our chests
but wait a moment, let me digress
so many ideas coming at you, it's hard to digest
feeling my truth pounding in your breast
recycled materials helping to build our nest
the imposition of government the true pest
so take a minute to rest
my words like bullets penetrating your bullet-proof vest
the tolerance of corporate misconduct unjust,
clearly it's time to divest
it's the war of the worlds, east against west
but why don't we caress and ingest instead of invest
and just remember this poem wasn't written in jest.
Wednesday September 6th.

Subject: Thanks for helping save the Blueberry Bog!
Good news about the Blueberry Bog!
Over 60 people filed comments with the City of Lacey about the
development project. Thanks to everyone for responding so quickly.
Also, The Olympian ran an article on the Blueberry Bog a few weeks ago:
In the article Mike Cohen, the developer in charge of the project,
expressed his desire to create a conservation easement that would allow
continued public access to the Bog. If you feel inclined you might want
to write a quick email to Mike thanking him for taking the intiative to
preserve the Blueberry Bog.
Summer Quarter Plan
My web of learning is ever expanding and plans for the summer quarter
include the assimilation of that which I have studied, continuance of
projects, development of new projects and hopefully earning the CELTA
certification from Cambridge University to teach English as a foreign
language to adults.
I plan to continue to study what I term the “psychology of freedom” by
delving more deeply into the book Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
(ACT) by Steven C. Hayes et al.
The project of documenting tenant activities at the low income
apartments I formerly managed will be monitored further, with the end
result being a multi-media presentation developed in cooperation with a
high school student who is interested in filming. That
presentation will be completed in a future quarter.
I will begin tracing and recording my lineage, by interviewing my
ninety-three year old father on tape, and writing names on the backs of
photographs. I will begin the process of tracing my lineage on
both my parents’ sides using the internet and other resources. I
intend for this to culminate in a multi-media presentation in a future
quarter as well.
I will continue to learn about and apply the principals of the Cherokee
way in my life. The specifics of this are not to be spoken of.
I will continue with organic gardening. I have planted a variety
of vegetables and share in the work in an organic community garden.
Finally, I have applied for the CELTA certification course through
Cambridge University and hope to gain acceptance and earn this
certificate to teach English as a foreign language to adults.
This certification will enable me to travel abroad and teach English.
Thank you for the opportunity to enrich my life in so many ways.

Just a brief update on my summer work here...
I've been continuing my volunteering for the crisis clinic here in

I enjoy the work, and would recomend it to anyone intersted in
or psycology. Hopefully, I'll be able to find a job in an entry
counseling position once I get to Boston.
In the realm of my music studies, the most notable event this summer has
been the music camp that a friend and I attended in Mt. Shasta. Some of
our friends put it on, and they were kind enough to let us hang out and
attend classes for the price of helping out with the post-camp clean up,
and with the occasional class... It was an incredible week of
performances, intense workshops, and, of course, hanging out in the

Just a friendly reminder that the Writing Center is open this
summer. The summer staff is a cohort of the most experienced of
our tutors, and they are available to converse with your students on
all aspects of their writing. Students are welcome to drop-in or
make an appointment in our new location in Library 2304.
As second session programs begin, a representative from the Center
would be happy to visit your program to discuss the services of the
Center. We also are available for in=program workshops. To see
the current menu of available workshops, check out our Web site at
www.evergreen.edu/writingcenter. My recommendation is our
Self-Evaluation workshop, a feast of information and good writing
strategies. Please feel free to call our front desk at x6420 to
schedule a program visit or workshop.
I also am available during most of what's left of summer to consult
with you. It's best to make an appointment, of course, and soon I
will have my favorite yellow Formica kitchen table in my office for us
to sit around and gab about writing.
Enjoy the rest of the summer,

Subject: [reconciliation] More news...
Hey everyone out there in Summer Work land...I just wanted to extend
the invitation out to anyone who wishes to tell the story of their
projects so far. I find it hard at times to be inside and typing while
the great outdoors call me so strongly in these warm, summery days.
I probably spent 80 percent of my summer outside wandering the woods
and following adventures. I struggle to find a balance, to reconcile
of what 'work' really is. But when I remember all that I have learned
so far, I realize that if I am continuing to seek my passions and live
to the fullest, how much more work can I do? And what else is more
worth my time? I believe that the Earth is our best teacher, and
adventures out in
the wilderness, or dosing in the sun-speckled forests, fill me with
passion and inspiration. To projects of passion and true learning!
Peace and Wellbeing,

Subject: Update & Sept. workshops
I hope your enjoying your summer. I'm writing to give you an update on
the work I'm doing and to follow up about doing some orientation or
I'm currently working with Oakland Peace Camp, www.oaklandleaf.org ,
facilitating 2 Hip Hop Theatre workshops and one Violence Prevension
advisory. The Camp is arts based with a social justice focus.
I'm still working in San Francisco County Jail's Resolve to Stop the
Violence Project (RSVP) as a facilitator in the Theatre for Change
through Community Works http://www.community-works-ca.org/
My other weekly theater workshop behind bars is also through Community
Works and is in Juvi @ San Fransisco's Youth Guidence Center. We are
currently writing a play about the origins of Gang Violence.
In the Fall I'll pick up a hand full of artist residencies in the
public schools and I'll be running professional Development workshops
with Opera Piccola. http://www.opera-piccola.org
I'd still love to facilitate some workshops at evergreen this Fall. I
could come during orientation week September
17 - 25 or the following week
One workshop could be geared toward helping new students transition
into a liberatory learning environment. This workshop would ask
students: Where are you coming from and what do you bring with you?
What expectations do you have? What type of learner are you? and other
Another possible workshop would be in using interactive theatre
techniques in groups. I could guide participants through a series of
activities for group development, interpersonal learning, collaborative
healing, and artistic expression. At the end of the workshop I could
participants a handout with insructions for facilitating all the
activities experienced in the workshop.
Another option would be a workshop for Teachers and aspiring educators.
This workshop would be a demonstration of hip hop theatre activities
integrate a multiple intelligence approach to standards based
curriculum. I'd give the participants sample lesson plans and
help non-artist teachers
with arts integration ideas.
I would gladly develop any of these ideas further or customize a
workshop around specific guiding questions. Let me know what intrests
hope to hear from you soon
