Has it really been a month?
I'm emerging from hiding--actually, I haven't been hiding as much as unable to get to my blog because of computer troubles! Safari won't work for me, and Firefox crashes every time I try to load EmergingQuaker. Plus, I've been busy and made a deal with myself that I would do a few bureaucratic things it would be really easy to put off before I started blogging again.
Yesterday, I broke through to the site itself--actually, Roger broke through-- by using his machine to post a photo of Will, Nick and me. I had been wanting to do that! I don't know that we chose the world's best example of photography, but it's up, it's up!
Several surprising things: I am enjoying teaching English 151: Introduction to Writing and Rhetoric, at Ohio University! I was expecting to "get through it," not like it, so this has been wonderful. I have a great class. I'm also enjoying the transcribing I'm doing for a Lilly project on religion-- another job I held my breath and took because of worries about the, what else?, economy--didn't expect to like and now am finding fascinating.
My review of Kay Chornook's book Walking with Wolf appeared in the February Friends Journal and ma review of a reissued George Fox biography will appear ... I don't know when ... but I will let you know.
Roger and I went to Pittsburgh yesterday for the first time since we arrived here, so that was fun. We toured the Frick, which includes a car and buggy museum.
Anyway, I hope to be back on more consistent basis. How is everybody?
