Oftentimes I find myself alone in the secluded areas of the campus, sometimes imagining it to be the wilderness. When it is dusk, I can see how the lights of the houses echo the stars above, and the wind that blows through the pine leaves seem to murmur in understanding. During these moments, when I am sitting by myself on a rock overlooking the fields, I feel aloof yet connected to the rest of the world. Of course, tripping on foxholes alone in the dark isn’t the smartest idea (especially when on crutches), but I need to get out there.
