These Fleeting Years We Tarry Here

Earl Houck '67

Earl Houck ’67, a class agent, made the trip from Maryland to be here for the Big Bash.  I caught up to him on Sunday morning – at this particular instant he was the only alumnus on the mall.

The day was perfect…mild temperature, only a hint of wind, and bright but not too bright.

Earl was doing what I find myself doing more and more – soaking it all in.  It was just too good to pass up in a quick walk or even a stroll.  He needed to be still…49 years of Wabash kept going through his mind, I’m sure.

He saw me coming…that was too bad.  As I took the photo and departed, I hoped his thoughts weren’t interrupted.  You get to tarry here for precious little time.
