This past weekend I clicked my heels together three times and found myself in Kansas watching my youngest cousin graduate from high school. I was reflective (and a little teary) as I sat through the graduation ceremony and recalled a Judith Thurman quote that I had taped up in my freshman dorm room that read, “Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.”
Happy Graduation, Ray (Master’s), Becca (Bachelor’s), Julie (High School): you each inspire me in different ways. Keep dreaming while at home and away! Love, Your Big Cousin. More graduation love to Emily and Stephanie, two dear friends that always give me a sense of home, wherever we are in the world.

Really sweet pictures…the last one is especially moving! 🙂 Reminds me of my little sis: she is now 18 and has enlisted in the Army. She is now in the middle of bootcamp in Missouri. It’s amazing how fast our little ones grow up!
Congrats to all the graduates in your family…what a lovely time! 🙂
Thanks, Jessica. How does the time fly? Hats off to your little sis, too 🙂
