I went to Fordham with my brother yesterday for an orientation day of sorts that the incoming students go to (like Columbia’s Days on Campus, I guess, except it is just one day and only for students who have decided to definitely attend). And I went to the Parents/Guardians lectures, not the one for students, and I walked on the place where he will be spending the next four years, and I listened to the Dean of Students say how quickly Commencement will be here, and I thought about the strangeness of time and different people’s different places in it, and how all of this is still spread out before him, and how lucky that is, but how I would not go back to the beginning, to that place of being 18 and trying so hard to not try so hard for the wide world, but how I am glad, so glad, that he is finally there.
