Days when we are not in port alternate between the “A” schedule and “B” schedule. On A day, I sit in on Exoticism in Literature and Earth Climate Systems and on B day, Asian Religious Traditions and Creative Non-Fiction.

It was news to me that some of my favorite books fall into the creative non-fiction category. I’ve learned so much. I was still in the dark ages thinking of only fiction and non-fiction. So, most nature writing and travel writing are creative non-fiction. This blog is CNF. Maybe life is CNF.

Yours in creative non-fiction scheduling,

  2. Here's to CNF! You are both doing a great job. My question: what is "community college" time?

  3. Community College is an optional hour-long evening presentation every night. To this point, it's been a prof or staff member presenting on a topic of interest. Last night it was on the history of Japanese baseball.

  4. The "Community College" thing sounds very appealing, a seafaring Chautauqua of sorts. However, I must protest the characterization of baseball history, or indeed any other aspect of baseball, Japanese or otherwise, as a "topic of interest".

    Cheers!
