“Allow me to offer my congratulations on the truly admirable skill you have shown in keeping clear of the mark. Not to have hit once in so many trials, argues the most splendid talents for missing.”
– Thomas De Quincey
My sister is graduating later today. From college. Amidst all the horrific things that have been occurring in the world this last week, we move onward to this silver lining. Many will not be feeling the joy I hope to inhibit from the day. There are many trials and troubles within each day.
On a few occasions, we get a chance to celebrate the fact that we can overcome these moments. Tomorrow, rather later today because it is LATE where I live, will be one of those days for my sis. I hope many of the same will get to all of you and yours.
Take a day off of writing and just celebrate something much love to all.
