Chicago!

Just back from the (this-time-not-so-) Windy City.  I travelled up for the Central APA, along with some colleagues and about ten students.  It was a good trip:  I heard a terrific talk at UC by Matt Boyle (“Transparent Self-Knowledge”), got a chance to  spend time with old friends (Jim Conant and Michael Kremer), to see former students now at UC (Ben Pierce and Stephen Shortt), and to meet charming new folks–including Rachel Cohen (thanks to her for a useful conversation on Montaigne), and a graduate student from Eugene, Oregon, with whom I had a brief but upbuilding conversation (but whose name, may she pardon me!, has slipped my mind).  I also saw my teacher, Deborah Modrak, and got a chance to catch up with her.

And of course I spend time at Iwan Reis, the amazing pipe shop, at Powells Books, and the Seminary Co-op.  But now it is time to get back to work.
