What's in my pigeonhole?

Last Friday evening, while waiting for Kak Zalyah at the Plodge (Porter's Lodge), I noticed the blue Newnham College Roll Letters in our pigeonholes. There was a woman standing near them. She smiled at me and said, "This makes a nice photograph. But what is even nicer is to come back and see how well you all are doing. So when you become scientist or artist or author, we will write about you in the Roll Letters!"

The woman was a former Newnhamite who didn't know me but our college bond was strong that her encouraging me seemed like a natural thing to do...

O Cambridge, my love for you grows and grows!
