From the Great Beyond of Graduate School

While it may feel as if I am in the Great Beyond, detached from the rest of the world because of graduate school, I am still alive. In the past four weeks I have read 3 books for two different classes. These books are Symbolism of Evil by Paul Ricoeur, The Mormon Question: Polygamy and Constitutional Conflict in Nineteenth Century America by Sarah Barringer Gordon, and Poetics by Aristotle.

This week three more books are on the menu.

Heaven Below: Early Pentecostals and American Culture by Grant Wacker
Religion and American Culture by George M. Marsden
Time and Narrative by Paul Ricoeur

 

What have I been doing when I’m not reading, because clearly it hasn’t been posting here? I’ve been hanging out with friends and participating in Fall activities. For example, last week I went apple picking! These are a couple of photos from the County Line Orchard in Indiana. A group of us had fun getting lost in a corn maze, picking apples of every single variety, and choosing the perfect pumpkin.

 

 

 

Fall is by far the best season of the year. Why is Fall so great? Apples, pumpkins, the colors, comfort food, chili, sweaters, hot cocoa, apple cider…..need I say more?

What is your favorite part of Fall?

Happy Fall!
