“Mountain top in sight
Muscled legs grip shaky earth
Lungs drink air with thirst”

Graduation for most people is either a memory or a dream.

It is a moment floating on the sea of time surrounded by hope and exhilaration.

Graduates are used to questions they can answer; perhaps this would be a good time to reflect on these riddles:

If your graduation is a culmination, an apotheosis, what seeds release from that moment?

What happens between your graduation and retirement?

Will you bother to plant so that you may later sow or will you browse from the landscape as you meander down your path?

Will you water your dreams with your sweat or your tears?

Do your dreams ferment and become wine or vinegar?

Helen Keller once wrote “Life is a Daring Adventure or nothing at all.” Do you accept this as an answer?
