Hello all. I have returned from my travels to annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion in the beautiful city of MontrÃ©al, Canada, a little wiser, a little more burdened with books, and a little older (I celebrated a birthday while there). I have every intention of writing a much longer post on some thoughts I’ve been having in regards to my chosen career path, but those will have to wait. Suffice it to say, there are sixty-nine unread emails in my inbox right now (and not all of them are Facebook notifications!) so I should probably dig myself out of my out-of-office hole first, before I do anything else.
But, in lieu of a more formal post, I wanted to share the above XKCD comic with you. The Buddhists in the audience will get the connection almost immediately.
