Dear Internet Friends,
I've been on a blog sabbatical for the past little while. It has been unintended. The fact is, I've been very busy. First, I finished my thesis ("Ancilla Theologiae: The Theological Adjournment of Philosophy"), and then the rest of my course work (three essays: one on Derrida, one on Gregory of Nyssa, and one on the Cloud of Unknowing). Then I commenced looking for and finding a job. More on that in due course. Then flying to Dallas for church business. Then this weekend to NYC for a bachelor party. Don't panic. Nothing lurid. Quite the contrary actually: A terrific black-tie dinner and soiree, with plenty of toasting and roasting, at the University Club.
I hope to be returning to more regular blogging soon. But the running-to-and-fro has not ended yet. I'm officiating at a wedding in Sewanee this weekend. Then I've got to graduate. Then MM and I have got to find a place to live. Then we've got to move all our stuff across the country, etc. etc. etc. Not to mention that I seem to have come down with some kind of nasty flu. Yuck. I've been drinking Gatorade and watching 24 all day.
