I did not go to work this Monday because I needed to spend a bit more time with my dad before he left on his drive home to Florida, including going to Plato's Diner in College Park. He's actually stopping on his way back near Myrtle Beach, S.C., to visit a friend on his way back.

It was so peaceful this balmy September dusk walking across campus -- so filled with young, vibrant, not to mention some beautiful student life -- to the College Park Metro station.
I don't think I can ever really leave or let go of the University of Maryland, College Park.
