Power Shift Reflection

Submitted by Alex on Tue, 04/26/2011 - 15:35

I have been siting here trying to think of the right words to use. Yesterday I wrote a draft, but it barely began to encompass my experience. I have so many notes, and ideas scrawled in the margins of my Power Shift hand outs. But trying to put it all together has been kinda daunting.
