A 2016 Retrospective

Looking forward to 2017 means that I am coming up on my tenth year blogging here. That seems like quite an achievement in my practicing of narcissism. Though, in fairness, I never anticipated that I would ever end up with the website that I have built up here over the years. The success of Koine... Continue Reading →

SBL 2014 in San Diego

This year's SBL annual meeting was a huge success for me: plenty of meaningful conversation with friends both old and new together with several important discussions about future and ongoing projects in Greek grammar. And because this is probably the rare occasion where my photography interfaces with what I do on this website, I can... Continue Reading →
