“The shade is ample, the grass is good, the sky a glorious fall violet; the apple trees are heavy and red, the roads are calm and empty; corn has sifted from the chains of tractored wagons to speckle the streets with gold and with the russet fragments of the cob, and a man would be a fool who wanted, blessed with this, to live anywhere else in the world.”

– William Gass

I announced this back in May, but I just started my first day of work as Visiting Assistant Professor at¬†DePauw University. My colleagues are wonderful–warm, friendly, and helpful–and I’ve been genuinely impressed by the students I’ve met. It’s going to be a good year, I can feel it.
