Over the summer, I did a second 3-day workshops with CDS.  It was lead by Joe Lambert their Executive Director.  Much like the first, it was fun, hard-work, frustrating, satisfying, and touching.  The main difference was that it was with faculty from Mercy College, all of whom are truly collaborative and supportive colleagues.    In the last workshop I tackled an emotionally challenging topic (losing my mother), this time I picked a more light-hearted story that highlights my identity.  After creating this one, I realized that I have an adventurous side, that I can now articulate clearly.  I also love it when people ask me about my tattoo, so it is a little self-gratifying. It’s called “Skin Art by Elvis,” take a look:
