As I See It - May 2018

Dear Alumni,
 
As far as I know, the ground is still cold in Blue Hill, Maine, and yet my thoughts stray to my garden there and the garnet-colored astrantias I planted last summer and if they have wintered over. And I drift to other corners of the garden, to other favorite perennials, other beauties, and to the long summer ahead. The boys in my history class summer dream too, and as we begin to feel the first warmth of May, I am careful to steer us close to the work at hand—yesterday, it was Little Rock Central High School in 1957. These summer reveries remind me of how vacations can renew us and broaden our understanding of things and that to leave the city for quieter and more verdant places, close-by or far away, often in unfamiliar circumstances, and often in pursuit of some passion, is to make more of one’s schooling. When I asked the seventh graders about their upcoming summers last week, they had me all over the map—a Bar Mitzvah in Israel, a family reunion in Mumbai and another in Japan, a day camp in Westchester County, hockey, tennis and baseball camps, archery in Jackson Hole, and canoes in northern Maine. Raam Melvani '20 was clear about his early summer plans, "Cooking camp," he answered, "though I’m not sure which one yet." He told me his favorite dessert was a double chocolate layer cake.
