The heavens smiled upon the first day of graduations this week. Blue blue skies, cottony clouds, bright sun, cool breeze. I watched four of my friends graduate in this morning’s ceremony, and also Noam Chomsky and A. S. Byatt receive honorary degrees.

Ros and I are so decorous. No really. Below are my four friends who have all graduated now, and one by one will be leaving our seaside town. I have the bad habit of befriending people just as they are preparing to leave. Our church, All Saints, will not be the same without Rob, Ros, Chris, and Allie.
And to think, in a couple of years this will be me… and I will be the one wearing the blue PhD gown!
