Move-In Day

Wonderful post today--entitled "Beginnings"-- from Dorothea Salo. It's move-in day in Madison--the curbs are lined with students and their furniture. It triggers a moving reverie about her first move-in day there.

Wonder if my son was one of the kids that she passed by today? Jon's among the mover-inners. Presumably for the last time. It's his final semester. My memory of moving him into his freshman dorm in August of '97 is so vivid. That was a hard good-bye to go through. I'm so glad he picked Madison. It's been great. A real ass-kicking college town, IMO.

Anyway, Dorothea's post today is an excellent example of why she's absolutely one my favorite bloggers.
