A day filled with fine papers and once more very fine company. More of the same tomorrow doubtless and the Saturday I bring the whole enterprise to complete ruination with my least of the least papers. The substance and sum of which I shan’t bore you with.
As for the photo of the keyboard… well, some of you will know what it’s about when I tell you it’s Niels Peter’s.
Jack Sasson gave the keynote address- and it was warmly received, and rightly so. Afterwards, we had dinner provided by the Department of Theology at the University (but I didn’t take any photos because I was too busy shoving food down my throat).
As is always the case the best part is seeing friends like Manu Pfoh and Philip Davies and Niels Peter Lemche and Tom Thompson and Tom Bolin and Ingrid and Anne and all the rest (too numerous to list).
Here are some photos pre session and during. Tomorrow is a very full day, beginning at 9 and ending at 9 p.m., but fear not, I will post as I can via the iPad and I’ll put up the full set of photos tomorrow night (which is midday or earlier for you in the States).
I don’t know if anyone else does this but when I have a several hour layover two things happen- first, I wander around a lot and look at the inevitable bits of airport art. And second, there’s always that period of time, whether brief or long, that I already wish I were returning home instead of heading out. I can’t take a photo of my sad face- so here’s a few of the airtport-
First of all, if you want to use wifi you have to pay for it. Absurd. Second, if you are flying internationally you have to exit the domestic terminal and go to another altogether, which wouldn’t be so awful if you didn’t also have to go through the whole TSA security experience all over again.
Needless to say, I’m not impressed. Plus, there aren’t that many places to eat and so far I’ve found no Starbucks! What’s the world coming to?
In any event, I’m here for a time, two times, and half a time (or until the flight leaves tonight). More anon, as I make way to #cpc2013.
Is the freedom to read and read and read some more. Presently I’m enjoying a bit of Bullinger’s correspondence- mentioned the other day as freely available here.
Mercifully the local airport has free wi-fi (all airports should) so I can access to my heart’s content all the Bullinger and Zwingli I want.
It’s a glorious time to be alive. More as the journey to #cpc2013 continues.
