Running home

My father’s boxes included loads of slides that had been stored for decades.

This slide, probably from 50 years ago, shows me running across the lawn to home, after departing the school bus that brought me to College Avenue from Mark Twain Elementary School in Hannibal.  I was in second grade.

And today, as I leave my office at Webster University to begin my sabbatical, I feel the same way!
