This piece is in celebration of a young man headed off to the wild world beyond high school and away from family and the life he’s known.
It celebrates all the many roads that he will take.
It celebrates all the things that he will do.
It celebrates this bright and beautiful future ahead of him.
And yet, it celebrates the ties of friends, family, faith, and home that are like the string of a kite. They keep him grounded, and allow him to fly to greater and greater heights.
(And for those of you who are wondering, yes, those are feathers from my little flock!)
