Visiting Dad's Alma Mater
This morning we visited my father's Alma Mater where he studied electrical engineering and played college baseball 55 years ago. It was an emotional trip for me. I imagined his arduous daily commute from Queens and his sense of alienation as one of only two non-Catholics among the student body. I felt a flood of deeply unexpected longing for my Father and a sense of loss as I walked the grounds where he attended school.
