    Welcome, Jayme! He sounds like a great guest.

    Is he by any chance related to a former JI guest-blogger whose article shows up in the current Dialogue? (It was also in the published in the Summer Fellows collection a few years ago, which is a really good anthology.)

    If so, perhaps he’s just too modest to mention it.

    Hello everybody. I expect to finish my first post soon.

    Kaimi: My wife Katie is the vanguard in our family. She has published a bit, most recently in Dialogue, and done some blogging on JI.

    Most of my posts will be on the themes of community and place.

    I’m looking forward to the interaction. Thanks for setting me up, Marc.

    Best,
    Jayme
