Process Notes: A few days ago, Trina’s wonderful post about the On Being podcast reminded me that I still needed to listen to Krista Tippett’s interview with Naomi Shihab Nye, who has been one of my favorite poets since I started teaching high school in 2003. I was listening, driving, and trying to take notes. I thought writing a found poem would be easy, but it was surprisingly challenging to figure out what to keep and what to leave out and what order to put things in.
