D had some good ideas and I want to get the notes down because the brain of teaching and grading has me. Right now I am looking at 15 conferences a day for the next 4 days so Carlos and Felipa will have to take a back seat right now.
But D’s idea was to have some coverage of the conversation between Carlos and his Compadre before ‘the fight’ and perhaps give some coverage to Felipa inside of the grocery and their individual thought processes. I need to go back and think more clearly on means of perceptions and the switches as I move from white space to white space.
I had an idea the other day to follow Carlos and Felipa downtown as they shop.

This always filled me with imaginings of how that day would happen. My own Grandmother told me stories of phone calls looking for the old man at the local bar. I want to explore this later tonight or when I have time. The brain of grading and responding to student essays has me but I want to follow Carlos in downtown Monte.
The brain of my course load has me and didn’t have the time to draft or get any free writing down today. I did think about Carlos and how he might’ve acted or been an hour or so before his amputation surgeries.
