speaking essays


I think classes this week were a breakthrough. I had never tried to approach application essay writing in such a format. It had always been just lecturing on my part and then confidential one-to-one correspondence. I had never expected people to be so brave as to talk the way you did.

Now that I am thinking of it, I relate it to Plamen’s story about the aikido class – I did not give you better instructions than the aikido teacher did about meditation; it was just as hazy and fuzzy and impossible to teach as art. Still I feel it is taking us into the vortex faster.

Happy application season!
