At the Intersection of the Arts
To commemorate my 41 year tenure at Ouachita Baptist University, Dr. Doug Sonheim, Chairman of Ouachita’s Department of English and Modern Foreign Languages, asked me to pen a few words for the 2014 edition of “The Assayers,” the university’s literary magazine, and to submit an image of my choice for this year’s publication. I was deeply honored and greatly moved by his kind gesture and by his granting me permission to submit this essay (with minor emendations) to CounterPunch.
