The grand eve.

This time tomorrow, I will have met my newest young people, and I will have given them and all (yes, all) of their classmates some kind of rousing talk about making this little place home, and about accumulating homes. I think that I am collecting homes. I will thread them like beads, finger them on a stoop somewhere.

And this time tomorrow, I will be writing (or will have written) my one thousandth post here, my favorite stoop.

Good luck with the beginning of term! I, too, will be delivering a speech to a new young person tomorrow: in my case, a persuasive speech about the manifold pleasures of sleep. I hope mine will be as successful as yours will surely be.
