Autumn Color on a Historic Campus
Stephens College, Columbia, Missouri
There is always something special for me about walking a college campus — whether is is old and historic lime @stephenscollege or fairly modern one like Cal Poly Pomona — where my son attends and my wife teaches.
College campuses always carry a sense of growth and opportunity for me. The energy, and often, lack of aged cynicism, reminds me of the younger person I once was. There can be a bit of melancholy too, though, as I am confronted with all those plans that didn’t quite work out and this I abandoned for more life-necessary work.
Of course, I am sure some of my rose-colored memories come from the fact that college is where I met @drrosannewelch on the first night of my Fall Semester. Events like that are sure to color your thoughts for a lifetime.
Still, no matter how young the students start to appear — (When did colleges start accepting junior high aged students? 🤪) — or how old it makes me feel, I’ll still carry a special feeling for college campuses and the hope they carry.
