Your Thursday moment of zen.

Box 2 image 21 Feb 83

Photo (apparently) taken by me in Austin, TX, in the spring of 1983. From a box of slides (!) my sister scanned. I don't remember ever shooting with slide film in my life, but I do remember being at the event this series of photos records. No one else in my family was there, as it was a departmental picnic for the Plan II program at the University of Texas at Austin, which was my major in college.

This picnic under the live oaks looks like it comes straight from childhood my memory bank: gatherings of Florida State University's anthropology department (Mom), infected by the center for music research (Dad), at places like the Tallahassee Jr. Museum (a popular picnicing venue, where I later volunteered and worked.) :-)

Wow. I remember going to those! I remember them as being at Zilker, but that's definitely not Zilker.

I bet my dad's there. I probably stopped going when I was about 10.

No, they were at that park just north of Simpkins Dorm, real close to (but across the street from) the Engineering buildings off 26th.

That was always an entertaining park late at night. :p

I had forgotten that we had the same major, weird.
