ol’ stompin’ grounds …

October 15, 2007

I’m back in my old grad-school library tonite.  It’s been a little over 2 years since I was cranking out papers on this very keyboard.  (Okay; so this keyboard was actually research for the paper.)  But still.  It was here … in this place … hours and hours of sleep-deprived, caffeine-fueled, deadline-driven inspiration (affectionately referred to as grad-school) launched a new trajectory.

The destination is still so unclear.  (Maybe that’s why tonite’s tromp through the ol’ stompin’ grounds has been so soulful.)

Or maybe it’s nostalgia birthing new allegience.  (I actually contemplated a “Library Ode” post until I decided the Archibald Macleish version could not be improved upon.)

Whatever the draw, I’m comforted (and, yes, a little smug) as revel in this “other world” … only to type a final phrase and head to bed.
