Just came back from my walk. It’s another warm and sunny day in Pittsburgh. I walked through the campus of the University of Pittsburgh and through Schenley Park. Joggers were jogging and students were sunbathing.
From Schenley Park I ended up in South Oakland and back on campus. So, for the hell of it I decided to walk through Wesley W. Posvar Hall. I wore a Pitt baseball cap and a Pitt t-shirt but for good measure I checked my wallet to see if I still had my Pitt I.D. Yes I did. If security stopped me I could at least claim that I was an alumnus, graduating class 2006 of the MFA fiction writing program.
Walking through campus really brought back memories. My memories of Vietnam and my memories of being an undergrad and then a graduate student at Pitt from 1999 to 2006 all went into my ebook. Writing the stories about Vietnam was mainly therapy. The stories based on being at Pitt were about fun. Download your copy of Compressionism: The Pittsburgh Stories now.
