That if I then had wak'd after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open,
and show riches
Ready to drop me: that, when I wak'd,
I cried to dream again.
This summer, I have had the fortune of giving some GU tours to some prospective students. I made some new friends in London, UK including an incoming freshman. I have marvelled seeing Kenner Summer League Basketball games with the DC Hoya triplets: Austin Freeman, Chris Wright, and Jason Clark. I have enjoyed seeing the new Hoya freshman: Markel Starks, Nate Lubick, Moses Abraham, and Aaron Bowen bring energy and excitement to McDonough Arena. It reminded me of my student days as I often ran the floor at Yates Field House dreaming of throwing the alley-oop to Patrick Ewing and Michael Graham. I saw the movie tonight Inception for the second time, and was fascinated with their accounting of dreams. As I gave some campus tours this summer I could not get over the prospective students' fascination with the Exorcist steps. I was amazed today to realize we are at the 25th anniversary of the movie St. Elmo's Fire, that was not filmed on the Georgetown campus yet was fictitiously about some recent Georgetown graduates.
So, to all of my fellow Hoyas don't stop dreaming!
We are Georgetown! DC is our Playground!
