Goodness, what a spike in my stats! And it is thanks to Father Z, who sent everyone to The Crescat, who had a very flattering link to me. So thank you Father Z and The Crescat. This gives me another opportunity to flog my book Seraphic Singles (in the USA, The Closet's All Mine), which is the whole raison d'etre for this particular blog. If you are wondering what I was like and said about Single Life two years before I met my handsome and talented husband, read my book.
The more books I sell, the more books I'll be invited to write, so it is win-win for everyone, especially the booksellers--they get most of the money. If you can, get it from a lovely Catholic bookshop run by nuns. Me, I write for love and dreams of future fame, money, nice suits for B.A., a cottage in the Highlands....
Now, if you don't know this, I have been invited to the University of Notre Dame to speak at the Edith Stein Project on Saturday, February 12. I am very excited and scared because this means I have to fly over the ocean again! Also, I have to write a 20 page paper, which I haven't done since 2007, and what if Alistair McIntyre is in the room? Eeee! I would love to just read 45 minutes worth of blog posts, but this is Notre Dame here: I must make an effort to be brainy. Alice von Hildebrand spoke at Notre Dame recently, for heaven's sake. I may SWOON.
This year's theme is "Irreplaceable You: Vocation, Identity, and the Pursuit of Happiness." It sounds fascinating to me. It's open to the public, so if you feel like going to a great conference in mid-February, Notre Dame is the place to be.
