In this case, to a group of small children (probably the children (or even grandchildren, scary)) of my fellow alums. But he read it to all of us as students, too, and I think we all had that same look of rapture on our faces as teenagers as the small children do. God, I missed that.

For the record? Dr. Jon Miller, NCSSM, is an amazing human being and the best teacher I ever had.

And even better that after only a few weeks, this place has become home to the back of my head. It was fun being back in NC for a little while, but it's good to be home.

That said, my alma mater does throw a helluva high school reunion. It says something that after all this time, my classmates would pop up from across the country, from San Fran and Portland and a few from Europe, just to see each other again. I saw a lot of people I hadn't seen since out mutual graduation, and found that the ones I loved then, I still love now. Comforting, that.

Didn't spend as much time with many of them as I'd've liked - so many people there, so little time for one on one conversations, and I'll never really be comfortable in crowds. Sad. But Gahagabunny, Marci, MJ the incomparably wonderful, Gina, Gina, Froggy, and all the rest - it was wonderful seeing you again. And in a further vote for moving here, turns out a fair number of my old compatriots live here in DC and environs, including one who lives not but a few Metro stops away. Funny ol' world.

All in all, a good weekend. Wish I had another day before having to run away to work and the joy of being a new associate lawyer, but ya can't have everything - where would you put it?
