Before my parents and I left Oklahoma, we made one more visit to my former college to check on my brother. Mom hadn’t been to the new student center on campus the first time we came down. While they walked around the glass walls and steel columns, I lagged behind as the same hollow feeling that I had 3 weeks ago. It wasn’t a depressing type of hollow, but a “I can’t believe that I’m missing this.” type of hollow. Before I left, I talked to some old friends who told me “you’re coming back, Joe” every time I’ve come back here someone’s said that to me.
I honestly do miss it.
Hmmm…maybe it’s time to reconsider some things when I get home.
See you tomorrow,
