After the graduation ceremony and dinner last night, as we were gathering on the sidewalk waiting for Jon’s buddies to come pick him up. Jonathan’s friend Zane pulled out his ipod and told my son he was going to play something to make him choke up.
Within moments “The Cave,” by Mumford and Sons started playing, and Zane, Jon’s two brothers and I all started singing, and getting most of the words right and in the right order. I think we even did a pretty darn good job on the melody.
The neighbors were watching, but we are used to that. You’d think they’d be used to us by now. It was oddly appropriate. High school graduation is like coming out of a cave. People tell you lies and bullshit like those were the best years of your life. And yup, there is a song about that, a song that should never have made it on the radio in my opinion. Jon, this is just another beginning. There is so much more out ahead of you. I know you dream, so I encourage you to dream big, and to go for it. You have our support.
