"You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself  any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go. 2015-03-03_0006


You'll look up and down streets. Look 'em over with care. About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there." With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,  you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.


And you may not find any you'll want to go down. In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town.

It's opener there in the wide open air.

Out there things can happen and frequently do to people as brainy and footsy as you.


And then things start to happen, don't worry. Don't stew. Just go right along. You'll start happening too.

Oh! The places you'll go."

2015-03-03_0002 2015-03-03_0005You probably recognize those words, as they so very evidently are not my own. Dr. Seuss' "Oh! The Places You'll Go!" gets me every single year. Not just for my beautiful, bright-eyed seniors, but in general. I learned of this book when I was in high school and frequently revisit the words written by the Dr. himself. So painstakingly accurate to this beautiful life we live and the choices we have the free will to make, constantly. 2015-03-03_0013 2015-03-03_0014

Sweet Sarah Jane, I have no doubt that you will conquer great things in the places you'll go.2015-03-03_0015 2015-03-03_0018
