I enjoyed reading your introductory posts here in the Meet and Greet. Together, you and and Stephen remind me a bit of Kerouac’s On the Road with all your travels both physical and literary. It was also interesting to hear both your stories regarding Pacifica. I attended Pacifica without getting the Ph.D. I really wanted it at the time because I wanted a full time teaching job where I was teaching at the time and they would not give me a full-time teaching job unless I had a Ph.D. However, I quit teaching there and never got the PhD. I am okay with that. I returned to my novel writing and other books I want to finish before I die.
I would read your book if ever you decided to finish it and publish it.
