Oxford Generations

Finding the perfect Grove spot is like Manifest Destiny

I was always fascinated by the idea that families would gather all of their worldly belongings into one wagon, brave the elements of the unforgiving west, and race to stake their claim to something they hadn’t even seen before. I remember trying to imagine what that must feel like. I would imagine the fear of not knowing what lay ahead and the anxiousness over this potentially dangerous, one way trip.

Then I found the “Grove” at Ole Miss and didn’t have to imagine anymore! (October 8, 2010, Page 1B)

    Living the American Dream is doing what makes you happy

    Oxford Generations columnist Leah McCormick writes about living out your dream this week:

    Years ago, I thought I had the job of my dreams, the one I’d worked so hard for — and then I stepped off the treadmill …

    I’ll never forget my first day off. I just wanted to be in the moment with my children. I did laundry, got a wild hair and hung them on the clothes line. My daughter, Rivers, stood on an upside down 5-gallon bucket beside me and “helped.” The wind was blowing slightly, moving the sheets slowly in the wind. It was so “Little House on the Prairie.” Rivers beamed at me. I beamed right back. (October 1, 2010, Page 1B)

      Oxford’s long-running tradition of tailgating in style

      Jordan Bankhead takes on the beloved tradition of the Grove — Oxford’s long running tradition of tailgating in style – in this week’s Oxford Generations column.

          Which way is Montana?

          Every now and then we all face moments when we wish we were somewhere else.

          These moments might look like a rough day at work, an awkward pause in a conversation or the moment you receive some very difficult news. We all face them and we all have to deal with them. And yet, in our mind’s eye, we often travel to far off distant places to escape or run away. These exotic mental locations might be different for every one of us, but the principle is still the same. (September 10, 2010, Page 1B)

              Feeling like an orphan when mom leaves town

              My dad and I have been orphaned this sweltering month of July. I find no other words to describe it better: My mom has been out of town.

              She and my sister left for Taiwan at the beginning of the month. Shortly after they left, I was walking through the house when I was struck by a faint memory. (August 20, 2010, Page 1B)
