An afternoon surrounded by writers, all of us listening to Bob Mayer.
Must turn off the internet now and write.

thanks Bob.

well, what to say?
I'm finally finished all the craziness of school... what an experience. Eight months of immersion into a different world.
I loved the new perspectives I was exposed to and I look forward to watching the young people begin their new adventures.
It was hard for me to watch some doing things and making decisions that I was pretty sure were going to backfire on them.
But, at their ages I would not have thanked some nosy old lady for
her unsolicited advice... so I kept my opinions and advice to myself and tried to cheer on their enthusiasm and blind faith.

       For a few, well, I'm afraid they will have some serious bumps in their road and I hope there are only bruises, no breaks.

 For most, they have shiny futures with wonderful adventures to come.

              For me, I hope they will stay in touch...
                   maybe even let me be a surrogate old auntie...
                        you know, the one they can talk to...
                             laugh with... 
                                              and trust with their secrets.
