Graduation 2008 - Lipscomb University


In early May we made an appearance at the commencement for Lipscomb's graduation - seems like just yesterday we moved back to Nashville and these players were coming back only for their second year ....congratulations to the boys for finishing - it is a big deal and we are so proud of you!
I forget sometimes that people might read this that don't know us very well, so to explain - Charles is the man there to the right and he is the head coach for Lipscomb's men's soccer team. The guys in the picture graduating are Jorge, Babek, KB (other coach and business partner - I just learned that nickname, KB, it's pretty nice), Xander, Ben, and Jeff. The freshmen coming in and the team that's left behind will be cruising into their fourth season this fall and it will of course be business time again in mid-August.

From 'To A Young Son' by Julia Johnson Davis

In your face I sometimes see
Shadowings of the man to be,
And eager, dream of what my son
Will be in twenty years and one.

But when you are to manhood grown
And all your manhood ways are known,
Then shall I, wistful, try to trace
The child you once were in your face?

MY LITTLE ONE - By Tennessee Williams

My little one whose tongue is dumb, whose fingers cannot hold to things, who is so mercilessly young, he leaps upon the instant things, I hold him not.

Indeed, who could? He runs into the burning wood. Follow, follow if you can! He will come out grown to a man and not remember whom he kissed, who caught him by the slender wrist and bound him by a tender yoke which, understanding not, he broke.

Poem

We are so very glad that you are happy...
long may you keep so, my dear boy...
May you go on as well
as you have begun.
- Charles Darwin
