  1. Rev. Poulton,

    I came across this post in search of those lines of Stoppard’s. By happy accident I ended up reading your vignette of Mr. Selby.

    I am entering my second decade of teaching English language and literature, albeit to younger students in a rural school across the pond. With each group, however sullenly some might project themselves, there is the sense of a body of water–much disturbed already, but in which ripples might yet be made to travel long. Your words are a fine affirmation of that sense, and I thank you for them. I feel certain Mr. Selby would as well.

    I see from your bio that you have taken up classroom practice. Welcome and warm wishes.

  2. I would have loved the opportunity to thank Paul Selby for the capacity to ponder and question that he fostered.
