you are my sunshine

i’m at caribou right now… working on my LAST theology paper (for this term anyway) and procrastinating (obviously) as i wait for one of my 10th grade kids to meet me for coffee (to discuss a recent break-up). good times.

and i’ve been working on my paper the better part of today, as i will be doing tomorrow, because the material is so dense that i can hardly make hide nor hair of it, despite my love for karl barth.

anyway. whenever i’m feeling down… like i’m failing as a writer… i look at this:and all my sorrows and self-doubt melt away. keegan has that effect on me. the little boy i call my nephew, who (whom?) i love to no end.

thanks keegster.

pomp and circumstance

so i graduated sunday. the whole experience was pretty surreal. on the one hand, it felt more like a celebration than my undergraduate graduation because my family actually had to travel up here and i had to make dinner reservations and plans… like most students. back in lex, i just walked across the stage and then walked home. semi-anti-climactic. on the other hand, the degree is the least important aspect of the st. john’s experience. no graduate student goes to st. john’s for the degree (or if they do, they won’t say so). it’s all about learning. i mean, i don’t even know what my grades are. so i have this piece of paper conferring on me the degree of “master of arts of liberal arts,” but i’m not really sure what it all means. i did, however, get very excited about the hood.
