First Day of Classes

Yesterday was the first day of classes at Case Western Reserve University, and, sitting in the student union at lunch, looking at all the fresh and enthusiastic faces, I felt old and depressed.

Of course, a friend of mine pointed out that the freshmen are approximately a third my age. (Their parents are my contemporaries, or younger.)

I guess Iíll get into the scheme of things for the new academic season soon enough, but it just takes a while to get started, alas. More than anything, I despair the end of the-summer-that-wasnít, the coming of fall, which, of course, means the coming of winter, my least favorite season. But that is for another dayís worryÖ.
