To the Class of 2015

For my triplet cousins, their classmates and the millions of other young people -- and less young people -- graduating this spring...

You've worked hard and a infinite future is ahead of you, exciting and scary. Take every opportunity and create them when the opportunities you dream of are not in front of you. Be kind to others, be kind to yourself and find contentment in small pleasures. I hope you will be happy, and find happiness as the product of a meaningful life, filled with family, friends and activities that make the world a better, more hopeful place. 

I've spent the last three days in New England visiting with friends and family and celebrating my cousins' graduation in Connecticut, and what pleasures! A walk on the beach, conversation, laughter, pictures -- we've inundated Facebook -- new sneakers and so many memories. 

Alyssa, Jared and Shelby, here's to a wonderful future!

As ever, thanks for visiting and wishes for a very happy Fathers Day.
