Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

I’m sitting in the Yale Divinity School Library. A place so reverent, holy, and stoic that even God whispers. It’s all books and wood and cork and iron and column and balcony, and everyone uses a Mac. The outlets and ethernet connection are perfectly placed. The arch-top windows overlook quaint mansard-roofed buildings and rolling hills as the sun settles on the horizon. And a look over the room reveals (what look like) extremely smart people working on (what must be) indescribably important work.
I wish I smoked a pipe.

    One of my very best friends from high school went to Yale on a full pass. Full up everything paid for scholarship. So did his younger sister. You want to talk smart … he was smart. He and I did an independent study course in philosophy with a student teacher our senior year of high school while we were also getting the fledgling debate team off the ground. Now he’s an author and he’s still really smart … but bald. And teaching writing at a small college in central Vermont. Soooo … don’t be so intimidated. Those people put their pants on one leg at a time too.

    If you can, try to get some kick-ass pizza at Sally’s, Pepe’s or Modern. (I would try to go in that order, but really all three are great.) It would be best to go during off hours (otherwise you’re in for a wait in the cold), but I don’t think Sally’s is open for lunch. If you must stay near campus, try Louis Lunch on Crown Street — real old fashioned burgers that you and Matt won’t forget. BTW, loved the 24 weeks picture. LK
