'There are things that stand
in heights of the universe,
yet people take them lightly.'
Talmud, Berachos 6b
A few days ago my little girl received her High School Diploma... something that will take a few more days to process. Life, as we know it, is interrupted by moments of clarity.
Graduate comes from the Latin, gradus- a step, this being a step for both my daughter and me. I have been blessed to be one of her teachers these past four years and, like her, it is time for me to move on. My wife and I have our sights set on Charleston, SC... a new chapter.
I always have mixed feelings when chapters end.
Debbie Millman, designer/writer/interesting person recently delivered a commencement address based on one of her written pieces. It is one of the better I have heard.
