Among those who sent word all those years ago was Susan Balee, who was the editor of a literary magazine called Northeast Corridor. Yes, she said, to a piece I wrote. It was one more lodging in.
Today—so many years gone by in the interim—I meet Susan down on the Penn campus. She is an associate professor at Temple now. I am what I am still trying to be. We will close the gap on nearly two decades and look forward at the work that moves us today.
