Two weeks back Flip and I converged on Trapani's apartment in Jamaica, Queens. The three of us were together in Simmons Hall at Penn State, near Plateia Varnava in Athens, near Beaver and Atherton back at Penn State, and finally in Austin, Texas. Eight years.
Over the past year and a half both Flip and T left town for new opportunities. It's been hard to not see them nearly every Wednesday night like I had for the three years we were all in Austin. This trip we sat, talked, laughed, and did nothing of merit for three days. It was wonderful.
