Interests: movement, stressed/transgressive embodiment, lived experience (body\space\time\relation)
expression ( word, dance, text, image, story, music, poetics)
learning, yielding......

Hopes for the blog:
offer up the wild intersectedness of lived experience and engage others in creative, expressive, perhaps irreverant, hopefully playful, and respectful encounters....
enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

Autism camp, 2010; Day One

... and at the end of the day, we counted:
five bites
three hair pulls ( one of them an armpit hair... yeowww!)
one errant smooch
two punches
one head butt
one shameless boob grab
one crafty testicle squeeze
four kicks
six beauty tantrums
two spectacular masturbation episodes ( discretely and gently re-directed)
four bloodcurdling shrieks
NO poop in the pool ( whoo hoo !!)

two relaxed bus rides
one totally fun swim
dozens of remarkable conversations
hundreds of memorable interactions
hours of physical activity and play
a thousand moments of wonder and insight
one day of firsts
one hell of a learning experience
62 tired & ( reasonably ) happy campers
60 exhausted and ( reasonably) fulfilled students and helpers
one grateful camp director
nothing we can't handle together
a deep respect for the absurd

onwards, through the fog
