I’m another middle aged guy with a great family, old house (in need of repairs I cannot do), and a grill on which I pretend I’m the master (and fail) at least twice a week during the summer. The arts are a big part of my life, which does not explain my love for the accordion. I’m a college administrator with long ago majors in English, Philosophy, and Religion. I have a Masters in Professional Writing, which is like an English degree with a lot of writing. I also teach a first-year English class focusing on writing at Hope College each semester.
I’m also writing a blog following my reading of 50 classics over the next five years — there is a link on the sidebar.
