Catching up earlier on Thursday's New York Times, I read about (and then downloaded) a simple user-friendly program -- Wingnut Lo-Fi -- that allows you to create all kinds of photo effects. Though that's not my thing, it's amusing (and another means of procrastination!)
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
