ANYWAY, last week there was another terrorist attack here in the UK, this time in Manchester. It seems like not a week goes by without some new tragedy happening, and it is easy to let it become part of everyday life. The more I thought about it, the more angry I got. So I posted a bit of a rant on Fb. My old boss, an editor at the Dayton Daily News, sawit and offered me the opportunity to expand my soapbox in the paper (you can read it here). Unknown to me, my alma mater's Fb page got a hold of it and posted it. As a result, one of my former professors is going to talk to a higher-up there and they may contact me for a profile, a "where is she now" sort of thing to follow graduates. Which is a bit of serendipity because as of a couple of years ago, my UK university has forged a connection--a sort of sister-school link--to where I got my BA and MA in the US.
This reminds me that though I write, and publish some things, there are people out there reading. It's easy to forget that the words GO somewhere.
