Those were the closing words of my daughter's *commencement ceremony on Saturday. I believe them.
*C will officially graduate in August, after making up in summer school some credit deficits resulting from a semester in Sweden, but she participated in her class's ceremony, as did others in her situation.

As the wedding date approaches, I can see life beyond it. I'm making arrangements for a trip to France in September which will include a watercolor workshop, some time in the Dordogne and in Paris, too. I'll tell more once the wedding is over.

Our version of traversing the distance between two points is NOT linear. Have you noticed?
