Hello, Dolly!

The mind is a funny thing. After five weeks upstate, we’re heading to The River (St. Lawrence) for a long weekend and then, on Monday, back down to the city. So, this morning, I sat down at my little carrel in the Hamilton College library and something told me I just needed to get a new song on i-tunes. Why the finale, the title track of “Hello, Dolly!”? It took a listen for me to get the message?
“Hello, Dolly!
Well Hello, Dolly,
It’s so nice to have you back where you belong…

“Here’s my hat, fellas,
I’m stayin’ where I’m at, fellas
Dolly will never go away again!”

Do you think I’m glad to be going back? Hmm…
