  1. Dear Ms Sinton–

    I would like to contact you about the LENS program at University of Redlands. Are you still involved with it? Am confused, because the above says that you now live in upstate New York.

    Look forward to hearing back from you.

  2. Diana, I’ve been using maps since 1993 to try to mobilize attention and resources to support non-school volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in all poverty areas of Chicago. Read some of the map stories at http://mappingforjustice.blogspot.com and http://tutormentor.blogspot.com and view the interactive program locator at http://www.tutormentorprogramlocator.net

    I’ve been doing this with volunteers and limited resources and am looking for others who would want to support this effort in order to apply it to other cities than Chicago.

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed looking at your quilts. The one-block wonders were amazing.
