It's been an anxious day. Tomorrow I defend my dissertation. What can I do to prepare? I wrote some notes for a response to my chair's opening question. Beyond that, I have to think on my feet. As with my last post, I have some ideas to work out and so i hope to use that to my advantage.
Good news, though... and bad. I realized last week that the course I studied will be at Wounded Knee the day I defend. This was one of the sites where student journals really took off as a result of "serious play". However, as with the '05 trip, the wakinyans paid Shannon & Bennett Counties a visit. There is no doubt they had to seek shelter as did we in '05. I hope everyone is safe. I will be thinking of them tomorrow.
