It’s graduation time! How could that be possible? Seems like it was only yesterday we were at kindergarten orientation for daughter number one. Today she graduated.. from pre-school! Even so, the parental pride, and teachers’ speeches come in one-size fits all, or so it seems. But what does our graduate need to know about life, that’s just nicely underway, on the same day she’s outfitted with glasses?! Advice comes freely from many. But it seems too early to give our graduate the life lesson to follow your passion, stay true to yourself, never follow someone else’s path unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path (by all means you should follow that path, even if it only leads to a competitor’s woodpile). There’s always something to learn. In a recent speech to graduates, Stephen Colbert said that life is an improvisation: “You have no idea what’s going to happen next and you are mostly just making things up as you go along”. He might have been talking to a graduating class of wood-be lumber traders.
