The Brinkerhoff Home is a Victorian marvel. Built in 1869, it is now home to Quiddity International Literary Journal and Public Radio Program, and my office. On Monday I began work as the new Managing Editor of Quiddity, a journal housed at Benedictine University in Springfield, Illinois. I’m on central time now, midwest landed, and deep in the heart of the Land of Lincoln. I’ve got a two bedroom apartment which looks suspiciously like Peter Gibbons’ complex in Office Space. I have no microwave. I can’t find a tote of dress clothes (namely pants), just got my internet connected and I’m pretty sure I gave myself a hernia trying to lazily move a chest of drawers by myself.
