I just saw aÂ bunch of young people toss their graduation caps into the air.Â It’s a fabulous ritual, that.Â It’s a thrill to do, and a whole lot of fun to watch.
One of the graduation speakers tonight alluded to this line from Mary Oliver’s poem “The Summer Day” :
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
A very good question.
