After Miscarriage, You Are a Father Now

You are a father now,
Into eternity.
You conceived,
And even though
Your first will not be born,
Will never see
The light of the sun or the moon,
For a short while 
S/he knew the light from the love 
In your heart
That will never diminish.
Though there won’t be the anticipated 
Late night feedings,
No tricycles and bicycles,
No first day of school,
There is always love.
You are a father now,
Into eternity.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
