I am so proud of my campus, Mary Baldwin right now. They allowed us to fly our rainbow flag on an official flag pole for coming out day which just so happens to be during family weekend when I first saw it I teared up. But anyway I am proud to be a fighting squirrel,
Received a snack in the mail today–Mom sent me a book that first belonged to her mother’s mother, my great-grandmama Grace Lee. Poets of the South was published in 1903, and Grace read it in college, as evinced by her signature on the second page:
Grace Lee #12 Memorial Hall M.B.S. [Mary Baldwin School] Staunton, Va.
I said, “Mommy, this book looks brand new! It doesn’t look like it’s ever been opened.” She said, “Well, it probably wasn’t!” I’ll open it this weekend and read it all the way through.
