Too Soon

   Recently I have noticed that  the maples have begun to show color on some of the leaves.   Also we have a front yard red maple that has lost leaves.  Both are early harbingers of the onset of Autumn.   Another sign of the impending fall season is the height of  the corn and its color in the fields that I pass on my way to Cornell.   Where did this summer go?   Too quickly the seasons change.  Or at least it seems that is true.
   As a participant in the Information Outposts for the arrival of Cornell Freshmen in late August I am further reminded that almost too soon another academic year has started.   It was my pleasure today (Friday of August 23, 2013)  to welcome students and their families to the campus.   Our outposts provide both information and  friendly advice and support to new members of the Cornell community.   I enjoy working with Emeritus Faculty and retired staff who man these venues.   Never too soon to lend a helping hand.
   The seasons roll by and sometimes the changes come too soon, but it is good to be actively involved.   Of course as an avid skier I know that post Autumn the ski slopes will be open.

Ten years ago this day, daughter Victoria arrived on campus for her freshman year! Can you believe that? It was over too soon!
