The Starfish Poem – Words of Advice for Graduates

(words of advice for college graduates … + the starfish poem)

Life is too short not to do something that matters print_gapingvoid

Words of Advice for Graduates & The Starfish Poem

Update >> Since graduation season is once again upon us, we have decided to republish this post since it seems as relevant six years later as the day we wrote it. In those six years, Daniel has gone on to forge a distinguished career in education. And, in my ever so humble opinion, he truly is heeding his commencement speaker’s advice and both doing something that matters & helping to save the world. And while I am at it, I want to congratulate two of my nieces who are graduating this spring, Jennifer with her MS in School Counseling and Angela with a BSEd in Education and her teacher certification. Two more graduates who have chosen to go into education to make a difference, one child at a time!

My son, along with his peers from across the country, graduated from college this year. Our family had the honor of listening to Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy in the Obama administration, deliver the Washington University of St Louis commencement address. Chu, in his own uniquely charming and witty way, told the graduates his “take home message to you will be just one sentence. Actually, it will be just four words.”

Do something that matters.”

and then Chu added

Help save the world.

2016 Coachella Fashion >> Vintage One-of a Kind Finds

2016 Coachella Fashion >> Vintage One-of a Kind Finds

From Coachella to Stagecoach to FYF and Gov Ball, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. While music may be the main focus of thesae festivals, one could argue that the festival fashion, and especially Coachella fashion, is the true showstopper! Here is our issue with so many of the Coachella outfits >> they are what we have begun to call wanna-be’s. Rather than being authentic 70’s and bohemian style outfits, they are fakes.  It is a little like home decorating.  All those tiles that are trying to look like wood or stone and simply are not, drive us completely crazy.  We always say don’t choose a fake version of something if you can readily get the real thing. Same with clothes.  Why buy fake 70’s clothes when you can buy real vintage one of a kind outfits. This is why we turned to Daryn Belinsky, of Little Light Vintage, for her take on this year’s festival wear. Continue Reading →
