…And all that fills the hearts of friends,
When first they feel, with secret pain,
Their lives thenceforth have separate ends,
And never can be one again;
The first slight swerving of the heart,
That words are powerless to express,
And leave it still unsaid in part,
Or say it in too great excess.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “The Fire of Driftwood” (fragment)

Next thing we know you’ll be singing that sappy alumni song, Hurrah for the yellow and blue. Seriously though, what a great year, thank you for sharing it with us.

The thing I find most amazing about this photo is the FIVE people who were Photoshopped into it later.

Is that Bob Dylan or Mick Jagger?
Connie said on April 26, 2004 at 8:36 am
Besides Bob, the two standing on the left, the red sweater in front on the right. Now you have to tell us which five. Inquiring minds want to know.

Wow, not one black face.
Nance said on April 26, 2004 at 9:06 am
Wrong, 4dbirds. “Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there” — lesson no. 4,092 of the past year.

Nance, I’ve so enjoyed reading about your fellowship year. What a wonderful experience, for you AND for me (vicariously). Thanks for sharing it with us.

What’s with the guy who looks like verdant copper? (wearing sunglasses, back row)
Nance said on April 27, 2004 at 12:18 pm
One of our Fellows is…unsafe in the world, shall we say, so I covered him up. I was shooting for a joke on the Sgt. Pepper’s cover.
