If A DJ Spins In The Forest... 

The campus is dark and silent, the only disturbance the rustle and streetlight glint of autumn leaves settling on mowlined lawns.

But somewhere out there locals listen, some calling to request their guilty pleasures, most staying silent, ghostlike in their potential existence. People driving nightblind on the highway spin the dial, staying for a song or two. Faculty otherwise holed up in their dorm apartments set their clock radios and then leave them on softly, letting the sweet sounds of the Adult Alternative format lull them to sleep.

The students are still gone. But the radio plays on.

Hi there,

I wanted to send you an official congratulations, since Jasmine told me you announced your news! I had to read down in your blog till I knew it wasn't a big secret still ; ). Things are still going strong over here, the beginnings of potty training and many many cute toddler renditions of "twinkle twinkle little star"

Jamie! Great to hear from you! And congrats in return, I hear -- keep us on the mailing list for the announcement when the day comes, so we can send a little something along.

Potty training done on our end, but I hear it's easier for girls. Twinkle Twinkle never sounded better. My love to Felix and Jesse -- hope the West Coast continues to treat you all well, and if you're ever back in town...

(Hope no one else minds the personal exchange -- I don't usually do this, but I couldn't miss the moment)
Post a Comment
coming soon
