Well, I didn't get my call from the MacArthur's yesterday. I am so bummed (haha). Here is the list of those that did, and it includes a neato guitar-playing hippie geomorphologist from Seattle.
What would you do with an extra $100k a year, for five years, no strings? I think I would cut back or take a sabbatical from work, to write and to travel. Maybe buy a second home someplace sunny, to escape to in the winter (Arizona?, Mexico?).
In other news, I'll be reading with the fabulous Lesley Hazelton this Thursday at the Frye Art Museum, from work we were commissioned to write in response to art there. It should be a gas. Come on down. Free parking!
