Fragments of the whole

Well, it's only been, what, ten weeks? I don't have an excuse: I'm just a lazy slug. That and I have too many web pages to update.

The ARTC show the weekend of the 24th went very well. If you weren't at the Academy Theatre, you missed out. (Don't you just hate messages like that?)

Hallowe'en has come and gone, thank goodness. I really hate Hallowe'en, and always have. Did no partying, my children are too old to go trick-or-treating, my porch light is burned out so we had no visitors. Just another quiet evening at home watching NCIS reruns.

The userpic accompanying is a crop from a photo included in a recent (!) publication of Clayton State University, in celebration of their 40th anniversary. It was neither credited nor labeled, since no one there has any idea who those people are. They know it was taken on Clayton campus because of the distinctive "bent tree" in which one of us is sitting. The tree is still a campus landmark even though it was removed to make room for the new library. A plaster replica stands near one of the entrances, but it isn't the same.

The picture was taken in 1973, and is a portrait of the student newspaper staff at the time. I was the editor. The university archives have no publications from that time. I could lie and tell you it was a phenomenally good paper, since no one is in a position to contradict me.

Interesting to be part of the "lost history" of Clayton State.
