Time Again

By Scott F. Parker, BS '04 (Clark Honors College, philosophy, general science)

With his country seemingly crumbling around him, Scott F. Parker sets off to the northeastern corner of Oregon for a week of solitude, where he will hike, paddle, and reflect on the imminent birth of his son. A companion to his earlier book Being on the Oregon Coast, Time Again reveals Parker's thoughts about life, meaning, and, above all, fatherhood as they evolve in more playful directions. Guided by Zhuangzi and Bob Dylan, Parker balances this essay on the thin line of being.
