Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders.

Methodist Preacher discovers Ron Rash

And is a better person for it

http://kenatprovidence.blogspot.com/2009/07/why-preachers-need-to-listen-to-writers.html

Good link; thought I'd pass it along.

Pulitzer winner Alice McDermott had a noon lecture about an hour away this morning at Sewanee where Jon Meacham went. I wanted very much to go, but did not make it; though I did hear James Wood there couple years ago.

Rash is to read and have conversation in Boone in the next few days if I'm not mistaken. Hope the Good Charlotte Reverend can make that event as well, and get the Word on Rash To Bishop Willimon soon.

Newcomers to this blog will want to take a simple search at this blog for Rash's poem Sunday 1959. It is supernal.

And as I have noted several times here, Rash's thoughts on Baptism in the Columbia State feature several years ago are magnificent as well, easily googled and linked at his site at russoff agency links.
