I'm spending today reflecting, cleaning (sadly, it's time to plant the Christmas tree back into our closet) and printing out handouts for my classes this weekend at Maria's studio in Fremont. I'll be teaching the above journal along with three other classes. I'm all packed and ready!
At some point, I'll sit down, crack open my journal and allow for some spilling. It's an overcast day (my favorite type of weather) and the grey is inspiring me to do a journal page.
Reflecting on the legacy of this man today:

“And one day we must ask the question, ‘Why are there forty million poor people in America? And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth.’ When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. And I’m simply saying that more and more, we’ve got to begin to ask questions about the whole society…” –Martin Luther King, Jr. Speech to Southern Christian Leadership Conference Atlanta, Georgia, August 16, 1967.
