Jordan and Churros

The one thing that Jordan was looking forward to in Madrid was churros (donuts dunked in a cup of melted chocolate). On the first day we were able to make it happen! Our first stop after the hotel was at Chocolateria de Gines. We sat in the alley in front of the chocolateria and listened to the strolling musicians and wondered -- in awe and joy at being here.

What a treat!

Mari's Speech

Dear Friends,

On Mother's Day the poet, Mari Evans, was invited to give the pre-commencement address at one of the schools at IUPUI. You can read (and download) the speech by clicking here. It's amazing and well worth the time to read it. And well worth me keeping my fingers from typing more and keeping you away from reading this brilliant analysis of our world and our society today. Magnificent. Truly.
