The capital city of Texas has skyscrapers, freeways and the University of Texas at Austin with 50,000 students. My husband graduated as a civil engineer here about 32 years ago. It was fun to walk on the huge campus with him and see where he went to college. Much as changed since he was a student here. He's standing by a large live oak tree below. Behind the fountain above is a stadium that holds 98,000 football fans. They are playing their rival Texas A & M Thursday night on TV. Guess what we'll be watching while we visit with Texas relatives after the Thanksgiving feast?
How strange it is to visit an old high school or college years after graduating to find everything has changed especially yourself. Walking amid young students with their dreams and energies it seems like a long time ago that you were in their shoes worrying about the future-what to do for a career or who to marry. But they will follow in your footsteps and one day their children will be the young ones walking the campuses. Life continues an interesting pattern for us each to learn in our own way and in our own time period.
