As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The truth is that as I take the time to think about graduation, and hearing all the stories. I take the time to analyze these moments of glory. There is gratitude and happiness. But as a non-traditional student that is returning to studies, a mother, or from the viewpoint of a teacher / researcher, my view points are probably much different, because of the wealth of life experience that I possess, pushed through, and faced through the acquisition of the degrees. These are also current thinking points, that I am also faced with at the present moment. The thing about the philosopher / thinker is the ability to walk the path of truth. For this path there has to be congruence with the heart and mind. Without this we are lost. It's like a lost lover trying to find his / her way through the wilderness. I continue to reflect.
