back from cairo

These stickers are designed just like Egyptian license plates, but they commemorate Day No.1 of the revolution. And they are ubiquitous!

I'm finishing up the first draft of a story about one of the organizers of the revolution. The piece is for the Atavist. If you haven't heard of it, you will soon. In short: a fantastic new model for publishing long-form journalism and creative nonfiction. Do check it out, do read Ratliff's piece "Lifted," and do stop back again in three weeks to pick up my story about the architect of Egypt's leaderless uprising.

Meanwhile, I began teaching this week. My carefully considered assessment thus far: Holy cow. What a trip!
