This would have been Day 1 of our Study Abroad course, if just a couple more intrepid students had signed on. We’d be in London this morning, with planned visits to Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill and Dickens’ House, beginning to immerse ourselves in the peripatetic history and culture of that storied isle, soaking up the post-Brexit chaos, anticipating an election we’re not already sick of.
“The world is a tragedy to those who feel,” said Walpole, “but a comedy to those who think.” We really need to think hard, these days.
We can wait ’til next year, anticipation is more than half the fun. You promise you’ll still be there, right Britannia?
