The Road to Carolina

If you're going to be anywhere near the Research Triangle in North Carolina this weekend, I'd encourage you to swing by the South East Regional Seminar in African Studies (SERSAS) and the South East Africanist Network (SEAN) Conference. The main program will take place on Saturday at the University of North Carolina's Fedex Global Education Center. The conference theme is "Border Crossings, Migrations, and Interventions," but panels will deviate from those themes. I'm on the panel and would love to meet any readers who might be in the area.

Derek, just saw your article on Writer's Digest this month and realized we both appeared on "The State of Things" in October. I found your piece humble and inspiring; yes, the bravery to pursue writing (amidst the rewards and the pitfalls) does mean something. I also thought of the tortoise--he always wins in the long run.

Ashley --
Thanks so much. It's amazing how small our world is, eh? I'm glad you liked my piece and I really appreciate the feedback, since these things as often as not seen to disappear without a peep.

Best --
