And–thinking–come back home

18 February 2011

This quote really hits me deep right now. It was penned by Thomas Wolfe, the source is unknown to me. Wolfe graduated UNC in 1920, 90 years before me. Wolfe was also from Asheville, NC. And after graduation, he too moved to Boston. I wouldn’t be surprised if it weren’t an unseasonably warm day in Boston, like today, that drew him back to Chapel Hill, in the same way that it’s beckoning me today.

But sometime when the springtime comes and the sifting moonlight falls, they’ll think again of this night here and of these old brown walls, of white Old Well and of Old South. With Bell’s deep booming tone, they’ll think again of Chapel Hill, and — thinking — come back home.
