Today we had a long day; my hubby, the baby girl and I headed out to Boston to spend time together and to get a special outfit for the big day of the High School commencement ceremony. We came back in time to pick up Mamie from her train coming from New York, we rushed back home because the ladies needed beautifying, my hubby is handsome so all he needed to do is put on a suit and poof, the Esquire man at your service. The weather held off from exploding into thunderstorms; which made the ceremony held outside even more beautiful with the backdrop of blue skies being pushed aside by dark angry clouds and then retaking their position, heading off those big puffs of angry clouds, at the end of the commencement exercises, the class of 2012 released, each student individually, butterflies into the sky which was still alternating between blue and grey and black. It was very poignant symbolically and that was addressed, every student was asked to mindfully take a minute and think of how the symbolism affected him or her personally. After the baby girl had her chance to say her goodbyes and farewells, we all departed to get to the best part, the graduation celebration with excellent food. We had sushi and cooked appetizers at Bizen, we laughed, we talked and we laughed some more. Now it is time to relax and think on the milestone of our last child’s high school graduation, but it is late and so I will say au revoir and revisit this tomorrow.
Describe the last time you got really lost.
June 8, 2012
I was in London, England during the summer of 1987 attending the NYU summer program for 6 weeks. I absolutely loved it, the city of London is an amazing place; vibrant, diverse, historic and beautiful. I made it a habit to walk throughout all of London with my ever trusty map. One day I went into a section of London which wasn’t to be found on the map, I had the street on the map but where I was didn’t quite correspond to the map, I wasn’t worried but it took me a few people and many turns before I found my way back to reality. I am not exaggerating, I felt as if I were in another dimension being on a road that wasn’t on the map. It was a good experience because it showed me that being lost is okay.
