For those whom responded to my last entry, I am humbled.  Thanks to Sushi, without her, I would still be all alone.


Yesterday was my graduation, or as U of T calls it, convocation.  I never really thought about it, until I was actually there, getting ready for it, and all the preparations for it.  When you’re in school, you just think of completing your last couple of credits.  But when you actually get your diploma, it is definitely worth it. 


This brings me to a ‘truth’ I guess,  If you ever wonder why some people, even those that are very sucessful and rich, (classic example: Oprah) still face sadness or that feeling that there is something more out there, it is in the moment getting that full hearted acceptance and appreciation from those that mean the most to you, both your parents, in the moment and time that is meaningful to you.  This is perhaps the most, that one can ask for in life to bring true happiness.   


Such an event for me highlights this.  I was able to have both my parents in perhaps the highest point of my short life to appreciate and to be very happy in what has been a long, rough, but rewarding road for me.  Some are never given that opportunity.


I am truly and very gratified.
