5/27/16 Notes to Myself: So many caps and gowns. Who's that little girl suddenly all grown up wearing hers? How is it she now dances in this time of change sharing tears and smiles in all the uncertainty. Yet there she is, receiving awards and honors. Celebrating 4 years of hard work and the choice to pursue her art. Now departing from a place that's been her home. There are friends and supporters that have been there all along, in a way only she could know. Fellow artists and creators embarking on their own new journey from here. Creators all with their caps and gowns. Everything is swirling around so fast inside and out she says and I'm not even done yet. Graduating, with my cap and gown... I think I'll keep creating, she says. I hope for nothing less than that. We need more artists and I love you.
