Hi there classmates,
I am glad to be part of this class. I am a freshman and trying to get back in the swing of things. I am a author of a poetry book published 2010. I love to write poetry and short stories. I am a mother of 2 adult sons and have 4 grandchildren. Coming back to college after 35 years is very scary but I am slowly learning new things. I realize I am not as smart as I thought i was. Remember to always Stand tall Stand strong through any storm. if the Storm knocks you down than get back up and start all over again. I am looking forward to getting to know you all better.

My 2 favorite sections are in the reading of Shrouded in Contradiction. I felt these two passages really tell us (the reader) her inner most feelings.
"I want to argue. I feel like a child.Defiant. but powerless. Burning with injustice, but also with a hint of shame. I do as i am told, feeling acutely conscious of the bare skin I am covering."
All know is such moments of passionate abandon, within the circle of invisibility created by the veil. offer an emotional catharsis every bit as potent as any sexual release.
