The End of the Year

If you are on an academic calendar, this is a special time of year, a bittersweet time.  It is the end of the year, the turning of the cycle. The students you have taught for the last four years or three years or five years are graduating.

This year (because I was voted "Outstanding Professor" by the graduates), I get to play a role in graduation. Specifically, I get to hood them as they walk the stage and get their degrees.

I've done this before, and it is a remarkable experience, an emotional one. One of those emotions is joy, of course, but also loss.

The years go by quickly.
