May 2, 2020

I’m in this class,
Covid 19, I’m sure you’ve heard of it.
I have to take it to graduate;
I guess it’s a universal class for everyone right now.

I’ve never had a class
that meets every frickin’ day!

And it’s the most complex course –
a constantly changing syllabus,
somewhat self-directed,
mixed media, no reading or writing required.
Sometimes I’m in a big lecture hall,
sometimes I’m in a break-out discussion.

There’s tons of self-reflection work.

I can wear sweats and slippers to class without shame,
and get this! the class involves happy hours,
often multiple nights in row!

But it also begins the minute I get up in the morning.

The best thing about this class is there is no grade;
it’s kind of a pass/fail, but not really.
I get credit just by living.
