I can't remember who else was in dorm at the time. Notice that Mrs. Samuel, our dormparent, and wife of Mr. Samuel, our former dormparent, isn't in the picture. So, I've always wondered about why they took the photo in the first place. Well, it's really nice to look at things like this once in a while and think back to a time when life was different, and you had a lot less to worry about. Now the aim is to realize and eventually achieve a state of being that involves no worrying at all...or to be conscious of it and realize that because it's such an integral part of our lives we would stand us in better stead to focus our energies on dealing with it rather than complaining about it. Oh well, I'll drink to that any day.
Now that I think about it, there was even a time when we used to go around school saying "Phel Dorm" in what seemed to be some early form of dialogue developed by Neanderthal man.
