Today was about the connection between physical + mental health. My host swears by the inclusion of physical fitness as a part of a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle. She and I attended a Rebounding class as a start to the day. Strength and cardio woke me up after a somewhat fitful night's sleep and, even without my sneakers, I could participate fully, supported by the spongy recoil of the mini-trampoline. Truth be told, the whole endorphin rush is not a game. I am fortunate that Simone has enough guest passes for the rest of my visitation week. Afterward we chilled (or heated) in the sauna- the Dodge YMCA is off the hook. Highly recommended; I am looking forward to budgeting for my own membership.

In either case, I've culled a few choice quotes for the boook that I would like to share:
- "I am white culture. Yet it is the Negro in me what I am." - William Pope.L
- "White is not a color, but strategy." - William Pope.L
- "I'm trying to come to the point | I refuse to give up my obsession | America stop pushing I know what I'm doing" -Allen Ginsberg
Blessed are those who delegate. - Sara Hart
