      • Opening Narration: When you're growing up, Septembers have a special feeling. Another carefree summer is all too quickly ended, and a new school year is about to begin. There was an extra excitement for me in the September of 1934. My years at Miss Hunter's school on Walton's Mountain were over, and I was ready to take those first faltering steps into the strange world outside. How vividly I recall the edgy excitement, the awful exilaration of preparing for my first day at Boatwright University. It was a day which showed me how little I knew about some things, and how well my parents had prepared me for others.

      • Closing Narration: There have been many other first days in my life since that long ago September, but I've been sustained through them all by two certainties: I am who I am, with whatever shortcomings, and family ties may lengthen to accomodate distance, but they are never broken.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Boatwright Unversity is now the University of Richmond, and if you are in Richmond, going toward Carytown, there is a road that cuts through to the school called Boatwright Road.
