College days

  • On the campus of Santa Rosa Junior College, a couple sit on the Annual Ring, a sculpture by Roger Berry. Described as “a celebration of astronomy and mathematics,” the 19-foot ring, which is on loan to the college, is positioned to take advantage of the movement of the sun, casting a long straight shadow along the ground at the time of the equinox. Did I know this before I researched it on the internet? No. Did the students sitting there know this? Probably not. Does any of that really matter? Not in the slightest. Is it a good place to sit, play music, chat, and make a connection? Apparently so.
