Almost in control
Merely a signature between me and University House.
An exquisite setting is University House for an elegant suit and a plain white shirt.
I am excited. I return to the magic of my youth, but more in control.
University House will seep into me, informing my mood, my sensibility, with elegant spaciousness. Indeed I am spacious.
Built during the Cold War with meters thick walls to withstand an atomic blast, today resists the vulgar, the cheap, and stands testament to a more gracious time.
I shall become more gracious beside the pond in the sunshine under the trees.
I can't help feeling this is more than I deserve - but still I am excited. It is as though I am gathering all my girlfriends in one place still in love.
From University House I shall row out into Lake Burley Griffin, and disappear into the unbearable light.
