Writer’s Log: Stardate 9/10-2-12
I finished up at Hope International University today. Hope is a tiny school with 500 traditional students, literally across the street from Cal State Fullerton with a zillion students. I was unfamiliar with the school but had a really nice time there and met some great faculty and engaging students. The school has a really interesting infrastructure that was once an upscale multi-level mall, with expansive outdoor walkways, lots of glass, and interesting venues. My talks were in an old theatre that could seat 600.
The theatre was full for my chapel address this morning. I used my “God Saw that it was Good,” presentation again and it was well received. A student afterwards told me she thought I had a good “documentary” voice. I am wondering if I should try to make a short video to promote the book when it comes out--to try out my "documentary" voice.
Tomorrow I start moving again, after being happily ensconced at the Henck’s for 3 days. I am at Westmont for the afternoon, then back to LA to visit my friend Sam Jean (Wyclef’s brother) in Hollywood, and then Sunday I fly to Seattle.
So far this trip has been great, but I miss my wife. Despite the great opportunity to hear me speak again and again, she somehow had better things to do.
