'nother long one.

Going away for the weekend again, this time to the mountains. Should be back between 2 and 3 on Sunday afternoon.

I sat in Hoke today.

You were there. And you. And you and you. You were all there, like it was yesterday. Hundreds of yesterdays rolled into one. Patrick's yellow pants and Sarah's little black dress, Willy's Superman shirt and Nic's Veggie Tales shirt and Nathan coming around the corner with Jolly Ranchers, Bekah's enthusiastic smile and Liz's funny notes.... From Western Civ to Eve Redeemed, from the deepest pains to the highest joys. All in one room now empty save for a few hundred seats, a couple handfuls of stairs, a stage that was always too small, and an A/C that was always too strong.

Some memories just don't fade.
