Clarion, Day 42: So long, and thanks for all the caterpillar sushi

Dinner tonight with the gang at Omi, a sushi/other Japanese place within easy walking distance of the KKG house. I had caterpillar sushi, which I had never had before, and which is both beautiful and delicious. Also octopus with shoyu and sesame oil, likewise delicious. Came home, packed as much as I could tonight. Tomorrow I should be able to get out of here in an hour or so. Plan is to leave at 7 a.m., to be home by 6 p.m.

From the conversation at dinner, everyone else is feeling pretty much as I do: very sad, with a tremendous sense of loss. If I had one misconception about Clarion before coming here, it was this: I didn't realize how all-consuming it would become, or how much the other students would become a part of my life, the elemental components of my world.

Six weeks of Clarion is about right. More would be too much, less would not be enough. Clarion must end, I know that, we all know that.

But damn, it's painful.

This is probably my last post from East Lansing. I'll post some summing-up stuff after I arrive home, get unpacked and reorganized.

Yay! and Boo! and thank-you for all the informative posts. I can't believe you've been there for 6 weeks already. The tips you've passed along have been great.
(Boo! that's it's all over, I meant. *g*)
