EXCERPT
I'll be perfectly honest and tell you that I have no adequate answer to why I write the way that I do. Writing fiction that departs from reality in some way is not intentional for me; it's not a precept I impose upon the work. It's simply what comes out of me.

On Sandy and Natural Disasters: A Garbage Man's Perspective

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, Paul Gordon (MFAIA ’13) has published on the Huffington Post his reflections on cleaning up after a natural disaster. As a garbage man in Binghamton, NY during flooding in 2006 and 2011, Paul witnessed the damage, loss, and range of human reactions that emerged in the days and weeks after the floods.  His experience provides way of considering what’s happing in many lives along the Atlantic coast today.

An Integrative Approach to Crohn's Disease

Four years ago, Carina Rockland (BA HAS '13) was hospitalized for six weeks with an unknown diagnosis. She had severe abdominal pains and was malnourished, vulnerable to septic shock, and showing no signs of improvement. Just after Carina’s last surgery, weak and perilously underweight, a gifted acupuncturist visited her hospital room and helped Carina feel the first glimmers of healing.

Bricks and Mortar

 It’s late 2012, and the long-promised death of print (predicted somewhere on a Mayan calendar, I’m told), has yet to happen. I live in Seattle, birthplace of Amazon and the Kindle (full disclosure: I worked for Amazon twice, once from 1998-2000, again from 2004-2007), and yet I still see people leaning against bus stop posts absorbed in paperbacks. I’m lucky to live in a town that boasts two large independent bookstores—Elliott Bay Book Company and University Bookstore—as well as a variety of smaller independents that cater to various neighborhoods and niche interests.

Goddard was invited as a leader and innovator.
