A moment of silence

With everything that has been going on around here, I don't have much to say. I mourn the loss of a Wellesley sister and grieve with the rest of the Wellesley community.

I learned not to fear infinity,
The far field, the windy cliffs of forever,
The dying of time in the white light of tomorrow,
The wheel turning away from itself,
The sprawl of the wave,
The on-coming water.

--Theodore Roethke, "The Far Field"
