Going Back, And Not

Tonight was my high school’s annual Alumni Bull & Oyster Roast. A bunch of men in a large gymnasium, drinking beer and eating food, and most importantly, shooting the breeze. Network value in that room is incredible.

Graduation was 12 years ago and change at this point. Next year, I will have been out of standard non-collegiate education for longer that I was in it. Five years until that holds true for college as well, and my time removed from my school days eclipses the time spent in them, if only in quantity.

Like a memory perpetrator, still I return to the scene of the mind. At Loyola, it’s hard to get back there, as when I go, it’s generally to the new gym/fieldhouse that wasn’t in existence during my time there. It’s an odd disconnection, amidst all the reconnection from one year to the next. It even makes walking on the grass — which hasn’t changed — a new event, as the scenery makes its mark in the corners of my eyes.

I’ve written before about how the times they are a-changin’, and how I wonder what will bind the youth. An election showed me something, I guess. I still wonder though, unconvinced.

I don’t know if there’s a point to this. As you can tell from the timestamp, I probably lost the point some hours ago.
