FRIDAY JULY 6 Taylor girls fly to Sydney for fun weekend, Taylor guy (me) fly to Los Angeles.

An LA WEEKEND to recover from jetlag, so I’m open to any offers of human conversation.

MONDAY July 9- FRIDAY July 13 Living the text in a postmodern context block course at Fuller. Recent email from Fuller: Steve, I just looked up your enrollment. We have 21 MA students to date. That’s an amazing enrollment these days! So that’s sweet. I really enjoyed teaching this block course last year and with one year’s experience of navigating the Fuller-burbs under my belt, I’m really looking forward to it.

SATURDAY July 14- WEDNESDAY July 19. Allelon Mission to Western Culture Project. I have to provide a brief paper. I’m also looking forward to hearing a fellow Kiwi accent.
