2011 Graduation #1

Last night was a great night to open the graduation season for me.  The sky was clear, there was a light breeze in the air and the excitement was electric.

There is nothing quite like a graduation.  Proud parents all around, grandparents with tears in their eyes, small children begging older siblings for a chance to wear their "cool hat".

Last night I watched as 388 young adults reached a major milestone in their life.  I witnessed numerous hugs, a few tears, and tons of laughter.

I listened to 9 speeches (overkill) as well as one of my favorite songs from the musical Wicked "For Good".

My favorite quote from the evening was spoken with great enthusiasm but the co-president of the class.

"When you are submerged in an ocean of pure emotion, sink down into life and experience it as it happens."

Are you experiencing life as it happens?

9 speeches does seem like a bit much.

Here's wishing you at least one or two Dr. Seuss references this year.

I do have to let more positive emotion sink in these days.
