If the Cap fits…
What have I let go of?
What have I embraced?
What answers do I no longer need?
What questions do I now hold?
I enter the hall to the graduation ceremony,
I take my chair, I feel supported by it. I breathe.
I breathe again.
I reflect on the many hours in many different chairs
that have lead me to this moment.
The many hours learning, the many hours unlearning.
I am present, I feel it. I capture the mood as it flies around the large room,
excitement, pride, relief, a rare chance to savour a milestone reached.
Observing the familiar faces of like-minded friends,
colleagues and trainers seated nearby, I feel moved.
It is yet another space for us to experience together,
perhaps the last one, perhaps not.
I am honoured.
