Sanborn House, Dartmouth College, Alcove #6. 12 P.M. Two leather chairs meet. My back and my legs rest comfortably, supported individually. I turn the knob on the lamp over my right shoulder and find myself under its light for hours at a time. My phone buzzes. It's a friend suggesting a time and place for dinner. I separate the chairs and pack up my belongings, knowing I'll be back the next day. // Sanborn House. Alcove #6. 7 P.M. Students take their positions for the remainder of the night. Though he spent the day cleaning the facility's various levels, John returns to let his body rest. Five years on the job, he's proud to be the one who maintains “the most beautiful buildingâ€ù on campus. John passes time on one of the leather chairs, for his daughters will be done with their athletic practices within the hour. John singly-handedly keeps Sanborn enjoyable. But John doesn't seek recognition. The students' mutual appreciation of the building brings his smile each day. Ross Bower
