This is dated February, 1990 and it seems to have something to do with the preparations for the Economic Summit that would be held on campus that July:
It’s been raining here for about a month and in fact it is raining as I write this. There’s a rumor going around that it will stop raining tomorrow but I can’t afford to believe it.
Bonus: This afternoon a thoughtful reader brought me a set of Campaniles from the 1920s that had belonged to her uncles. In one of them I found these leaves. I love that I will never know what, if anything, they meant.
