Good evening, all.
My name is Enos, and I've just signed up here at Percy-L. I've visited here
several times over the past few years, and while the discussion here seems
rather sporadic, it's still (in so far as I can tell) the only Percy-centric
message board going. So, here I am.
I'm 34, male, and I live and work (nominally given the current economic
climate) in North Alabama. With regards to those topics most often
discussed on this board, I am largely self-educated.
I believe I came to Dr. Percy via Richard Ford, whose work (especially the
Bascombe novels) I very much admire. I recall having heard or read somewhere
Ford having remarked on Percy's influence, and I suppose I went from there.
The degree to which Dr. Percy's writings have influenced my thinking (or,
perhaps better said, clarified already-brewing thought processes) over the
past several years is difficult to understate. And just as Ford gifted me
with Percy, Percy has gifted me with Dostoyevsky and Kierkegaard. Suffice it
to say, it's been quite a literary pilgrimage.
Anyway, I look forward to reading and participating here. Y'all take care.
