Delmarva Today 12-17-2021 part two

Wilson’s guest is Delmarva Public Media essayist George Merrell. Merrell has announced his retirement from radio after more than 12 years of producing a twice monthly essay for Delmarva Public Media. Here he sits for a personal discussion with Delmarva Today host Harold Wilson to discuss his work as an essayist and what that has meant in his life. He says he discovered the personal essay in midlife and it was as if the whole world had opened up for him. It was a way through which to explore the world and his own relationship to it. Merrell is also a photographer, pastoral psychotherapist, and Episcopal Priest George Merrill and a former nonfiction editor for the Delmarva Review.
