Sarah and Andy!

I had a dream last night that you called me. I've been thinking of you lately, as I've decided to go back to school next to get my teacher certification--yay! But I can't remember for the life of me which school you went to, Sarah. Oh my forgetful brain! I can't seem to find it on the Internet either. So anyway, in my dream you told me what school it was, but when I woke up, I promptly forgot again. Arh!

where are you two?? i hope you're having fun.

love you
nicole

ps i met a couple from switzerland on their bikes recently. they are going to india and back through africa for two years!

Roman households were much broader than we conceive of in modern terms, with a wide spectrum of people connected by family and employment living under one roof (the terms domus/eikos/ikea capture this idea of an indiscriminate household…

Be true to your school now!

This is a cross-posting of a comment I left on peacebang.com's recent post about my school, Starr King School for the Ministry. PeaceBang, who is apparently a UU Minister in the Northeast, posted a few days ago an item about my school's supposed "banning" of the term, "brown bag lunch," because of the racialized connotations of brown bags.* Her post was, to my reading, haughty and dismissive, and she seemed awfully pleased with her own wit and ability to take cheap shots at others with little to no basis for her opinions. I think the comments for that post are up to 40, and it's a pretty lively back and forth. So, here is my contribution:

"This may not be the ideal forum for “deep, serious conversation,” but one of the cornerstones of Educating to Counter Oppression is the importance of having deep, serious conversations wherever they happen. The status quo of “waiting for the right moment or forum” to engage with these issues too often leads to…
