“I think I have a book in me, and I think that teaching this course might help me write it.”
It was the first day of spring semester 1999, and I had just uttered the statement above in front of a group of 20 honors students. The statement, as this website proves, was true. It was also incredibly naïve, as the 13-year gestation period of Reason and Wonder attests. Why did it take so long? Well, as they say in spiritual circles, it’s not the destination; it’s the journey.
