Week 3 of marathon training took me back to Trinity College during yesterday’s 20k run.
When I applied for admission @uoft, I selected this college because of their specialized International Relations program. Also there was something Potteresque about it.
A few weeks after applying I received an email from the college that asked to write a short essay on the interpretation of the main entrance door behind. I went again there on a cold and bleak Sunday morning to seethe door one more time before writing the essay.
Later that fall I found myself in the George Ignatieff Theatre together with the other incoming freshmen listening to the Provost's welcoming benediction.
Throughout my time at Trinity, one of the things that I learnt was that only one of the two doors of the main entrance open. This way it ensures that anyone that enters does so on the left, and leaves on the right. Most Trinitrons could associate this collegiate experience with Dante’s “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” .
