Well, I'm probably not going to write much on here until I get to Oxford, but in the meantime, you can read some old posts from my Messiah blog...haven't updated there in forever, but there are perhaps some interesting things to read: http://blogs.messiah.edu/besmudged_left_hand. There you can read my thoughts responding to Dana Goia's lecture "Why Literature Matters," and some thoughts about Wuthering Heights and Of Mice and Men, as well as various other jots and tiddles about other subjects.
As you may have noticed, both my blogs have titles that refer to my left-handedness. That is because two of my most favorite things, writing and drawing, I use my left hand for. Also, eating, which is another favorite activity. I also am pretty sure that I hold books in my left hand when I am reading. So, that is why I have honored my left- handedness in my blog titles, if you can count being in a blog title as an honor.
(Actually what really happened is that I named this blog without thinking about the other and then thought I should probably come up with a good explanation as to why they are similarly named).
That is all.
