Col Canto

Tonight I had to travel north to hear a senior recital. As I drove home, exhausted and freezing, it occurred to me that while most students leave college full of facts and figures, we send our students into the world armed with melody, harmony, rhythm and poetry. To many, that might seem frivolous at best and unforgivably wasteful at worst. To me, having a song to sing in this life -- and being willing to share it with others -- is one of the most precious gifts of all.

Wow, that is such a great way of looking at it.
