This morning before dawn I took this picture of the full moon over Amherst. In all immodesty, it's one of the nicest pictures I've taken recently.
What was I doing in Amherst so early today? Hey, it's the day before Christmas, what do you think? I was running around doing all kinds of stuff getting ready for the holiday. Alas, that leaves little time for blogging.
I went to UMass for breakfast, and cutting through the Southwest section and going past the John F. Kennedy Tower I saw that the departing dormitory dwellers left behind this statement of affection for their academic home.
