I’m leaving the Heathrow Express from London Paddington. Walking in the endless underground tunnels to make my way to the Queen’s Terminal, I hear behind me “Rock Chalk.”
I turn around.
A guy — college age, of Asian heritage — in a Jayhawks fleece sweater is making his way back to Lawrence after visiting family in the UK.
He spotted by University of Kansas Jayhawks identification tag on my suitcase.
Jayhawks are everywhere.
And I’m glad for this truth!
