A breeze swept the shore, the warmth of the sun dispelled the frigidness of early spring. Slowly the sun began to wane, ripples of shadow raced across the beach into the sea. The memory comes quick and clean and brings pleasure, but the essence was in the living of it, not the memory. I can reminisce over the past four years at Swarthmore with great joy: eight seminars; proctor checks and open house hours; Collections we had to go to, saturated with New York Times; sneaking girls into and out of dorms. The memories are clear, though I know their worth was to my living, not my expected collection of the past. So it seems quite perverse for memories to become such a source of pleasure in themselves that we plan for and institutionalize them. Our existence, our lives, are something of the present. Purpose and meaning evolve out of the now, the times of pain and happi- ness, not from the shadows of memorabilia. So I am forced to say to all of the condescending pedants who so graciously took me aside and offered advice — to hell with your desires for a good ref- erence book complete with name tags and sophomoric captions. I ' ll not create a mausoleum of part of my life to be picked over by others. I ' m not quite sure what this Halcyon is, though at least it is not trapped in the past . . . perhaps it might be a place to start think- ing for the future, Roy Shanker
