Life has its degrees of satisfaction.
Each new accomplishment adds to the quality and structure of our lives.
At certain defining moments, there is a distinct heightening in the level of pride each of us feel for those close to us. It is more than gradual - more than a graduation..
Standing in front of the 'completed' wall students of mine built, last year at Dalhousie University in Halifax N S is my daughter Maddy who 'graduated' yesterday with a BA in English from Dal. It seems like a big step, a huge monumental accomplishment. Her mother and I are very proud of her.
