And so it ends..

Not with a bang.. but with a wimper. The arguments over .. we're in the dead heat of summer.. but that long stretch of vacation soon will be over. And with it, officially, ending will be Cardinal Brennan as we knew it. Gone forever are those signatures on the bell tower wall..

The Bell Tower Blog, I suppose, must go with it. Also no bang here.. just that long dull wimper..

In 1996, I was a freshman.. I waited outside of the school the day before Thanksgiving vacation started .. my ride to take me home was late.

But I was at peace. It was before the pine trees were knocked down.. the cold wind was blowing through them making a long, dull, and ancient howling whistle.

I hear that same noise now. .in the middle of summer. Those distant memories .. In the past now.

The future is now. And the future it without CB.
