In the Student Lounge

I’m sitting in the student lounge at Starr King:

There are six students here.

One is writing a paper. Not sure of the subject, but she hasn’t looked up much, writing intensely.

One is reading The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois and Soul Work. A pile of books is sitting nearby, and being occasionally referenced.

One is reading The Postcolonial Biblical Reader and a book about the Psalms, highlighting like mad.

Every single one of them is studying.

Just sayin.’

  1. times sure have changed… i never studied in the lounge. that seemed to be the hang out/gossip room when we were there. or was it just the crowd i hung with? ; -)
