Exploring Arithmetic, copyright 1958 by Webster Publishing Company
There's a crispness to the air today that reminds me of plaid uniform skirts and pumpkin muffins for breakfast, of pencil cases and new backpacks, of spelling tests, library books, and arithmetic. I never was attracted to math, yet I can't help but want to pull out a hand-crank pencil sharpener and spend an early evening filling in these whimsical pages.
The desire to keep learning is strong, and the mind questions whether my current path is the right one. In this Autumn air, I long for academia.
