Happy 2015, y’all. I was blessed to be able to spend the holidays in South Florida, had a great vacation filled with family, beach time, shopping, dining, and chilling with my new friend Anthony, riding through coastal hoods, and even on the I-95, on the back of his motorcycle. (It was thrilling.)
Back to reality.
The school year started back up on January 5 and we’ve been pondering what is morally ambiguous about Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find”. Major characters = The Misfit, a charming killer, and the grandmother, an overbearing big mouth. Most tragic endings come about due to a tragic flaw of the protagonist.
O’Connor was brilliant, and actually wrote this story two years after being told that she only had five more years to live.
Now for a three day weekend (Thank you, Dr. King), then a few more class days, including a written final to end the fall semester on Friday before Regents week.
