This (very) limited edition book looks fascinating: "Stories Behind Bars was inspired by the author's job as a Spanish interpreter in the US courts. It consists of four individually bound silkscreen printed booklets: in one, a young man is deported using video teleconferencing, another gives some brief history of immigration detention, and all tell stories of immigrants in U.S. prisons and jails. The stories give the reader an insight into the complex issues surrtounding the immigration debate. The four separate pamphlets are housed in a slipcase with a barred window." via Immigration Prof Blog.

I'm happy to say that (with only 9 weeks till the marathon! Eeps), I have started jogging again. Since I hurt my ankle I've only been walking but today I alternated jogging (5.4 mph/1.0 incline) with walking (3.8/3.5) for 4 miles, without any noticeable ankle pain (fingers crossed). Trying not to get overexcited and push it. Might try yoga today, but am wary of all the "stand on one leg" or "grab your foot" poses that might irritate my ankle.

"Emotional discomfort, when accepted, rises, crests and falls in a series of waves. Each wave washes a part of us away and deposits treasures we never imagined. Out goes naivete, in comes wisdom; out goes anger, in comes discernment; out goes despair, in comes kindness. No one would call it easy, but the rhythm of emotional pain that we learn to tolerate is natural, constructive and expansive... The pain leaves you healthier than it found you." - Martha N. Beck
