I'm Back

Great week at grad school last week. Came home yesterday. Will probably write more, but for now, let me say it was all fabulous overall.

Walked the beach listening to Sting's Songs from the Labyrinth, watching waves pitch and gulls sail.

Attended great seminars, joined friends for the workshopping of two different plays--read in one because a Southern voice was needed.

Met my new advisor, Ryan Boudinot and participated in the examination of three short stories, element by element in our advising group.

Great conversations, great ideas, loads of fun. Inspiring as always.

Worked out a couple of plot problems on my thesis novel while sipping chai.

Wonderful week. Wonderful world.

I sometimes miss some of the wonderful intellectually fulfilling activities of grad school. This takes me back. Glad you had an enjoyable learning experience.

Good to go. Good to be back. Yeah, it's really great. Just went to the library to request a book called The Lime Works that's out of print at the moment. It sounds interesting.
