going to jackson

I landed early at the Cabot Lodge Milsaps which is a kind of Country Inn and Suites for a Southern man. It's nice, i sat by the pool today and sunburned half my nose and my forehead at my hair part. Walked around the campus of Milsaps College and saw a statue of Gandhi and Major Milsaps' tomb. Read in a little garden-y enclave then went back to the hotel to watch the Virginia Tech shooting coverage. Tomorrow i'm going to Lynchburg, which is not Blacksburg. Ate fried pickles and sweet iced tea with Holly who is a Greek and Latin prof at the school and Michelle, a sculpture prof. They were great. Saw the awesome huge art studio area at the college. Not sure how many students are there though. The screening went great wtih a good q and a. A couple of the students really loved and came up afterwards. There was also a guy from Albany who recognized that some of the buildings in Interkosmos were filmed there. more tomorrow....
