Make sure the link has an "a" after the week number. For example, do not go to a link that merely says "week 8." The link must be RED and say week 8a to work.

Buybacks! If buybacks are not turned in on your deadline, they are 1/2 credit the next day and no credit the day after! Read the blue BUYBACK section of the Survival Packet CAREFULLY so you can ask any questions/clear up anything you don't understand about the buyback procedure. For a copy of this blue section, click HERE. If you would like to use a template to do your buybacks, click HERE. (You can cut and paste this into a WORD DOCUMENT and make changes--add more rows or delete categories etc. to make it work for you. Remember to print it out in landscape format!) If you would like to use the ACE template, click HERE. For a STUDENT'S SAMPLE (not perfect, but close!) of what BUYBACKS ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE WHEN DONE, CLICK HERE (pdf.verson) or HERE (WORD version).

That's all, folks!
YOU DID IT!
MEETING OF THE MINDS day 3-- group
Things Fall Apart & Beowulf
FINAL QUOTE OF THE DAY:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
- Marianne Williamson (Nelson Mandela's inaugural speech)
by Mary Oliver
When death comes
to buy me, and snaps his purse shut;
when death comes
I want to step through the door full of curiosity, wondering;
And therefore I look upon everything
and I think of each life as a flower, as common
and each name a comfortable music in the mouth
and each body a lion of courage, and something
When it's over, I want to say: all my life
When it's over, I don't want to wonder
I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.
