    About Barbara Chepaitis


    1. I once asked a college class I was teaching to give me their biographies using one piece of paper, any way they wanted I got back origami, paper airplanes, essays, crayola drawings and which made for some fun, instead of reading insipid, uninspired lists of facts My biography, using one piece of paper, would be a drawing of a tree, with roots reaching down through the darkest part of the earth toward its molten core, and branches straining toward the stars Birds, a few monkeys, a jaguar, and a million fireflies would populate the branches hung with all kinds of fruit and flowers And it would be a big tree Very big indeed Big as a soul.
