Reflections of a Beginning Yoga StudentIf you are a relative beginner, try to claim a space in the far back of the room. Our innate need to avoid looking like a fool necessitates we grab a spot in the last row, similar to what we did when we were unprepared for school and you did not want the teacher to call on you. If you are concerned that your mishaps on a yoga floor might lead to the amusement of others, go to the rear of the room.

Congratulations, Lost BoysWith a sense of urgency, nearly all of the young men became engaged in their new lives, combining school (many attending Truman College), work (many worked at area hotels and at the airports), and attending church. The men carefully monitored the status of the wretched conditions in the South of Sudan, not to mention the events in western Sudan region of Darfur. Later, I learned how a couple of the men were able to reestablish connection with family members, joyously reuniting with sisters, parents, aunts and uncles over the phone.
