Eureka! A Photo Essay

Posted by Grace McClure


At the end of last semester, the 2014 McDermott Scholars took a class retreat to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, where Molly and Jon Seeligson have a home. To accompany a leisurely perusal of these pictures, I recommend something akin to this.

 

This certainly doesn’t cover everything that we did, but it is a taste. Eureka Springs is a beautiful place and made more so by the people I explored it with. In the midst of crazy schedules and finals and world travel and just before the winter holidays, these few days of friendship in peace will always be a bright memory.

“And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”

-Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
