my life as an english professor's wife

We spent the evening with Geo's Mormon Lit class, in the home of Charlotte England, widow of Eugene England, who was a real intellectual mentor to my husband. There was food and art, and then G did a beautiful reading of an essay by Gene. Charlotte is lovely and gracious and I want to be just like her when I am older.

This is a good life(style).

Looks like a fabulous evening! I wonder if the wife of a chemistry professor could pull this off?

Looks like quite the party.I hope you can be just like here when you get older. Always fun dreaming of how we want to do things when we are old.

Looks like a very nice, classy evening. I still have some of the books I bought for your husband's class in my possession. Considering I coudln't wait to sell back most of the books, that's a big deal:)

beautiful home! I think I need to know about the printed bread though :) after that advertisement it better have been good!

Kazzy | January 21, 2011 at 11:20 AM

T, the bread was scrumptious, and the lettering on top was done by using stickers, then dusting it with flour after the final raising. Then you take the stickers off right before you bake.

Some of my favorite university memories are nights like this - in the professor's home, with his family, learning and reading and eating. That's a great gift.

Did you make that bread?

(And I must know - what is involved in Mormon Lit?)

Becca | January 21, 2011 at 11:36 AM

Okay, also - is that foot part of a Brian Kershisnik painting? I lurve him.

Kimberly Vanderhorst | January 21, 2011 at 12:15 PM

There's something so...warm in those pictures. Each is like a hug.

Kazzy | January 21, 2011 at 3:06 PM

Yes, Becca. Kershisnik. I love his stuff too.

Lydia Kang | January 21, 2011 at 7:36 PM

That looked like good bread, and a lovely evening!

Jenny Lynn | January 22, 2011 at 8:10 PM

I liked the stars hanging in one of the photos. Seems like a nice evening.

Oh! Thanks for these pictures! I have spent some time in that home, too! Did you know that Eugene loved Poland? He organized relief efforts when there was severe flooding in Poland in the late 90's. He sponsored and housed a number of students from Poland, including Greg's best friend (which is why I have been to his house many times.) And I'm sure you probably know that he was present when John Paul II was shot and you can see him in video footage of the guy's hand with the gun (it was right at Eugene's ear).

Anyway, thanks again for the pictures. It is a very cozy, inviting home on a lovely street. I miss that place!
