George was passing through Atlanta this afternoon, so I met up with him and Mike at Mike’s office at Georgia State University, where I received MA a few years ago. Even though I live in Atlanta, I rarely get the chance to spend much time on GSU’s campus, so seeing all the changes to GSU’s campus, especially the English department, was a little strange for me, too, especially the changes to the Writing Center where Mike, George, and I spent a lot of time when we were graduate students there.
But as I wandered through the English department and other parts of campus I hadn’t seen in ten years, I found myself recalling events and people that I haven’t thought about in a long time. David discussed this experience when he described returning to Georgia Tech after several years away.
By the way, I found Bush’s Brain in a video store on North Highland, something I’ve been trying to see for a long time now. Nobody was using Bush’s Brain at the time, so I took it home with me. I promise to return it to the proper authorities when I’m done with it.
