Three Beautiful Things 06/13/07: Exile, Enduring Truth, Denali's Future

1. Molly's boyfriend, Hiram, is our houseguest for the next month or so. His family left Cuba and came to the USA following Castro's take over. I learned more tonight at dinner about Hiram's family's exile from Cuba and their getting settled here.

2. Kelly Mac and I had a fascinating talk about Christianity and other ways of seeing and understanding eternal truth.

3. I am the faculty literary advisor for our college's literary and arts publication, Denali. Finances, strain on workload, and other factors inspired our division chair and about half a dozen faculty to sit down with the last two editors and being to talk about ideas for the future of Denali and how the quality of the publication can be further improved. I wish the journal could stay in Lindsey and Lindsay's hands for a long period of time. It won't. They will move on to other things. It will be difficult in the future to find editors with their ambition, dedication, talent, and intelligence.
