Mr. Sage, my High School guidance
counselor, a good guy, told me
don't go to college, take a year off
and travel, see the world--try and
grow up, he meant, but I did not
listen: college! It what I had dreamt:
an Arcadia like in Athens, scholars
searching for Truth, gathered in forums
to debate, argue; Great Thoughts and
Ideas. I had to go, and did. And
dropped-out 2nd semester because
too immature, unable to talk to people,
lacked discipline for serious study.
