Today is my 34th birthday. Usually I have some wise words to share, something about what I have learned. This year, while I lack wise words, mostly because I'm tired after a long work day, I get the sense that this last year will prove someday to be one of the most formative of my life....the question is "how?" This is a question that can only be answered in retrospect!
The first two days of the Trinity College Postgraduate Conference have been good. I've heard several papers, a lecture, a panel, and presented my own paper. Tomorrow is the last day, then we morph into tourists with a day trip to London.
For the third year in a row I'm back in Bristol, England, for Trinity College Bristol's Post-Graduate Research Conference. I present Thursday. Yes, it's a paper about John the Baptist. Should be a good time!
