I saw what you did . . .

I saw what you did.  You were walking from Watson Library to the Residence Halls yesterday almost 5 o’clock.  There was a spring in your step, but just as you got alongside the biology building you stopped. You turned and headed down the driveway, where you had spotted a woman struggling to navigate her manual wheelchair.   You bent over her for a moment, handed her your books, then started pushing her in the direction of Kyser Hall, way out of your way.   I saw what you did, and I’m happy I did. You’re one of our best!

Each year at the Autumn Equinox, Natchitoches gets thousands of visitors, Spider Lilies.   The glorious red-heads seem to pop up all over the place.    My favorite spot is in front of the Wells-Tauzin House.  Carol Wells keeps the front yard in a natural state with as little manicuring as possible, as befits a home built in 1776.  Natchitoches was already 62 years old when the house was built. Over the years it served as a trading post, a warehouse, and finally in the 1960’s was restored using historically correct materials and techniques.
