Through the Veils of Time

Through the Veils, originally uploaded by elefanterosado.

Looking through banners at the new athletic facility at my alma mater, the Dana Hall School in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Immediately in front is an upper level track, and below is the first of double basketball courts. This state-of-the-art building came into existence after my graduation 25 years ago. Even so, I rarely visited the gym. I spent my P.E. hours at the riding facility just a little off campus. That, of course, has been completely improved and rebuilt too.

There was no internet when I was a student. Now the school is fully wired. I called my folks from a payphone in the hall. Today’s students languish in bed and speak to their parents from cell phones or from Skype.

Makes me feel just a little bit old. 25 years later baby…you’ve come a long way.
