The Education of Oronte Churm

I’m tired but happy after my summer’s writing labor, feeling accomplished in the short interim before edits begin. It’s good to be back at tasks on campus with more defined schedules and to get outside to see the bursting-forth of strange seed pods and orchid-like flowers that signal cool weather to come. I even got notification a couple of days ago that I’ve won an award for my writing, which puts me in the company of James Jones, Dick Gregory, and Senator Paul Simon. How great is that?

So a funny thing happened on the way to summer: I sat down to start writing a book, and when I looked up, summer was over. And my couch has a big indentation in it. Also: My brain hurts. Ouch. But I met my deadline, and that, as our friend Forrest says, is all I have to say about that.
