Did I miss anything?

The end of summer… the beginning of classes… and questions from students that keep coming back every year…

Q.: I could not be here last class, did I miss anything?

A.: from a poem by Tom Wayman:

Nothing. When you are not present
how could something significant occur?

Everything. Contained in this classroom
is a microcosm of human existence
assembled for you to query and examine and ponder
This is not the only place such an opportunity has been

but it was one place

And you weren’t here

One thought on “Did I miss anything?

  1. What a wonderful poem to send to a just dropped off, first time in college Freshman. Yes, I think I will. Thanks. Saludos, Gary
