ChesterCon 2006 begins today!
After a long journey, which almost did not get started, I am happy to say that I am here on the campus of the University of St. Thomas, on Thursday morning (hee hee) with the Chesterton Conference to start this evening!!!
The important thing to note about the journey is that I was able to stop at the fabulous Loome Booksellers yesterday (see link at right)!!! And I made some discoveries and bought some books. Some will be reported on later as time permits. The one which brought the great noise of discovery was the three-volume translation of Dante's Divine Comedy by Dorothy Sayers!!! Excellent. Also an intense volume by John Buridan YES!!! WOW from the 1300s!!! If you don't know who that is, I will tell you. You need to know.
But here and now: it is somewhat gray out, and there was a drizzle, but that is very Chestertonian weather.
More on all this later. The others will be coming soon...
