The gift of learning without fear.

After speaking on the steps of the US Supreme Court yesterday in support of marriage equality alum Kinsey Morrison ’14 had this to say, “One final thought after an unforgettable day: I realized tonight that if my sisters and I went to any other schools, we might be really afraid to go back tomorrow. St. Francis and Stanford have both given me the gift of learning without fear, one I too often take for granted when I forget how long I lived without it and how many people still do.” Thank you Kinsey and very well done!

a man changes a tire

on the side of the road

when I watch the sun travel down the hill so green

and my mind wanders from the splendid vision of the bottom of the sea

to the marking of a bumble bee, a clear yellow sting
