    Great meeting--so fun having a guest speaker, and such a prominent one! His presentation was terrific. Everyone there really seemed to enjoy it, and they are looking forward (me too!) to seeing what Paul Espinosa presents to us at tomorrow's Sunday Speaker meeting. Last night Paul showed us film clips that highlighted music, poetry, theater--not to mention filmmaking. Tomorrow he will present the history of the US/Mexico border.

    To clarify, Paul Espinosa will join us for TWO events with TWO different presentations. This one for the Humanities Project monthly meeting will focus on the arts in his films. On Sunday, at our Sunday Speaker meeting, the focus will be on the history and culture of the US/Mexico border region.
