Back to the Beginning

Washington College Magazine ran a brief profile on yours truly in The Writing Life section. Here’s the link to the online article.
Let this be a lesson to you: If you blog about humiliating childhood journal entries, including the stunning proof that you apparently couldn’t even spell “writer” at the age of 10, it will one day come back to haunt you!
Seriously, though, I’m happy to appear in this issue. It even makes me a bit nostalgic for my college days.
Do you read your alma mater’s publications? Facebook has kind of wrecked the best parts, hasn’t it? Status updates and access to online photo albums of weddings, new babies, new haircuts, etc. have killed the anticipation of flipping right to the Class Notes section of the magazine.
I imagine high school and college reunions have lost much of their drama, too, now that you can get a sneak peek at everyone’s life changes online before heading to the event.
I don’t know. Sometimes I think maintaining a little mystery in life is a good thing.
