I just ordered a new Toni Morrison book. It made me think back to college, and to a time when I felt a great deal of excitement at learning new ideas and reading writers I had never heard of. I remember staying up for hours on end with people in the dorms, discussing ideas. I wonder sometimes if there will ever be space for stuff like that to be recreated. Exchange of thoughts and values and analysis. I suppose a lot of the web messageboards I belong to play that role to some extent. It was nice to be able to do in person.

I wonder where a lot of people from that time in my life are now.
