Writing, researching and Dr. Mumba

Our work is visually boring this week–grant writing. Calls and emails to collaborators, questions of formating and style, of goals and objectives and budgets and timelines and personalities that we have to put down in brutally logical prose.

A delightful and very smart man, Frackson Mumba, an SIUC professor in Education, met with us for over two hours today to help, and helped immensely. We thank you, Dr. Mumba.

Wish us luck, this is exciting. And I’m amazed and the fascinating people we have here in southern Illinois.

And here’s a link that is visually interesting, showing some impossible things like those we hope to do, especially over the next few weeks.
