Breaking News: I've been invited to speak at the University of Notre Dame as part of the Edith Stein Project which takes place between February 11-12, 2011.
Thank you very much, Rebecca and other Notre Dame readers for your invitation to this event, cocktails, etc! This is so awesomely awesome that I called my Notre Dame grad dad (Class of '62) long-distance on a weeknight and off the plan to boast.
South Bend, South Bend--yay!
South Bend in February, South Bend in February--oooo... Wait a minute.
Oh well, it's not like Toronto is a sunny paradise in February either. And I'm longing to meet some American readers. You guys make up something like 60% of my online readership, and I do see a Notre Dame presence on my StatCounter!*
Ask and you shall receive was definitely working for me yesterday. Who wants to invite me to write for Our Sunday Visitor?
*Catholic U in Washington, D.C., Steubie, Scranton, Boston College and others are there, too. Of Canadian schools, the University of Toronto logs in most often. Of the British schools, Oxford is number 1. Somebody at Oxford loves me.
P.S. My American gran'ma lived in Indiana for decades, so that is where I always spent childhood beach vacations. Yes, there are beaches in Indiana.
