Crisis of Faith

Yesterday, I submitted an assignment that, upon thinking about it, makes me queasy. There are times when I wonder at what point someone is going to call me out for the fraud that I am. When I wonder when they’ll say, “Please, your undergrad degree is from THAT school. Do you REALLY think it’s worth…

Sunniest of weekends

So, I did something the other day that I wouldn’t normally do. I posted on Facebook that I would be in my old hometown on Saturday morning, if anyone wanted to meet me for coffee. As it turned out, I got three responses. One of them showed up, a former classmate who heads up the…
