In praise of Mrs Philocrites.

I'm extremely proud of my wife, who found out last week that she has been accepted into a Ph.D. program to study religion and literature. (Our home is turning into something of a Nicholas Ferrar and George Herbert shrine.) And last month she found out that she is one of four recipients of a major fellowship for graduate work in religion. Even though both titles are a bit premature, I have taken to calling her the Rev. Professor Wife. Of course, I feel very clever for marrying her.

Congrats to Mrs. P!

I did not get into HDS with my last-minute, thrown-together app this year, but I'm already coming up with a less rushed list for next. :-)

Mrs. P: What a delightful pursuit. In a long ago past I pursued similar studies. If you are not familiar with him be sure and "notice" 2 books by Nathan A. Scott, Jr. (1) The Wild Prayer of Longing--Poetry and the Sacred & (2) Visions of Presence in Modern Poetry. Personally I have always been partial to Theodore Roethke as a primal poet of the sacred! Be well. Work diligently.

Cheerfully, Roger Kuhrt

Well said Philocrities! Sometimes my wife wonders why I do all this blogging and is annoyed that I post things here that I might not have shared with her (yet). But ultimately if I can continue to praise her worthiness and my relatively clever side, perhaps I can win her over.
