Jan 23, 2011


The exhilaration of critical thinking;
The thrill of having the attention of a room of listeners;

The satisfaction that accompanies protocol, a smile and a handshake;

The intensity of persuasion, the energy in refutation, and the sense of closure when a debate finishes;

The anticipation of competition; who will advance? Who will win the prize?

And the etched memories of tournament weekends:
All this and more has been my experience with high school debate. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

All these photos were taken with a Pentax film camera in March of 2010.
