Yesterday morning, I visited Andrea and Don at their studio — they were the very first friends I made when I settled in Sanilac County 7 years ago. It’s hard to believe that I’ve lived in the peace and fresh air of rural Michigan for 7 years. I digress…

When I first started attending Literature to Film Club, back in September 2008, Andrea accompanied me for the first few months. We reminisced about leaving work early and heading to the suburbs for our bookish adventures which always included lengthy conversations over an early dinner before Club started. It was something that we both looked forward to every month and something that I’m now really going to miss.

I’ve done some inquiring and looked around for another book club, but without much avail — the one club I was very much interested in joining is about 2 hours away. Don’t get me wrong, I am not opposed to a drive as Oakland University is about the same distance; however, the difference is that my parents live close to the university…and I’ll be working a practicum this fall.

As part of my practicum, I am required to do a project…
