Hey Graduate: It's Time to See the World Now.

Hey Graduate:  It's Time to See the World Now.

There is a vivid memory I have of walking into Target with my mother the week after my college graduation.  We ran into a woman, a co-worker and friend of my mom's, and so we stopped and chatted for a bit as she tried to wrangle her baby and toddler, purse and cart.  

An everyday scene, to be sure.  But this one is etched into my brain because of one simple thing. This harried, happy mother looked me dead in the eyes and said, "Travel now.  You must travel now.  There will come a time when you can't as much.  Travel now."
