“In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice you’ll ever hear, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.”
Heart wrenching but so brave and eloquent.
Thanks Alvyn for sharing this!
Our day started very early with Cole’s baseball game. The field had a kid’s park that was like a mini Disneyland where Tommy, Andy & Tressa played the whole time. Then we went to a local fair for hot dogs, snow cones and popcorn and the kids got to pet sharks and play with fossils. After that, it was off to the comic book store for Free Comic Book Day (May the 4th be with you), where everyone picked their favorites. After heading back to Jenn’s we took a nature hike and the kids read their comic books, climbed trees and played frisbee. We finished the day, nearly 12 hours later with a nice dinner. I think they’ll sleep well tonight!
Postscript: 6 AM the following morning…Tommy’s still sleeping, but Andrew is up and VERY awake! :)
I’m babysitting the boy’s while Lisa and Joel are in Vegas this weekend. We had a spectacular sunset tonight!
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (and Mary Lambert) rocked it on Colbert tonight. The video’s not up yet, but I love the official video (I think I’ve watched it 100 times in the past 6 months) and thought I’d share it here for those of you who haven’t seen it. “Love is patient. Love is kind.”
