No, there is no town named Hiatus in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, or any other state, as far as I know. I’m simply going to rejuvenate this blog after nearly a year off.
Here we are in the middle of August, and for me, anyway, that means I’m thinking about my upcoming courses, about pedagogy in general, and – at least on this day – about Paideia, our common first year course at Luther. That’s got me thinking again about the wisdom found in Flannery O’Connor’s writing about writing, about Dante’s Inferno, which I’ll be teaching mid-semester, etc. So… look out for more soon.
