Enter autumn as you would
a closing door. Quickly,
cautiously. Look for something inside
that promises color, but be wary
of its cast — a desolate reflection,
an indelible tint.
~Pamela Steed Hill “September Pitch”
Today is a rainy gray start to the University’s academic year: we enter autumn cautiously with no little trepidation about what comes next.
Once we’re on the other side of the closing door, we search for what enriches and envelopes — that which is unforgettable and indelible.
May we find the color midst the gray.
