Horde of smiling faces in black gowns and caps




You know what this means right?

There is a good reason why they call these ceremonies "commencement exercises." After all, graduation is not the end; it's the beginning.

Sorry if I get erractic posts sometimes. I keep on deviating from my template. I always feel like indulging (especially when I write and I hold the pen). Say for example, while writing this entry (which I had in mind already), this poem i read just recently, it just bursts out of nowhere, wanting to be posted (badly). i hope i get the message across somehow.

there is a loneliness in this world so great
that you can see it in the slow movement of
the hands of a clock
people so tired
either by love or no love.

- charles bukowski (the crunch)

Wow, great all these graduating kids. Love the poem, so true.

You enquired if pole dancing is a sport in Belgium. No, not really. I'd have to ask the girls, but I guess it is likely just something they practice in a gymnastics club. For me it was my first witnessing, and I know something about sports.

You are right that the two young women are indeed very muscular. But I guess that is normal when you have to swing your body around a pole.

Now I knew Daisy before she started singing in Tom's band. She is a good looking very thin young woman, I never could have guessed that she could produce such a rich, deep sound. But believe me, she can. They covered Californication, and she really brings it with an attitude. I hope we can get the DVD soon, I'll then ask Tom to upload some stuff to YouTube.

They decided to wear white shirts for the performance, don't ask me who's idea. Tom usually wears dark colours or black. So we had to buy him a white shirt. You flatter me very much in praising my fatherhood. I'm a very busy guy, but I do try to make time for my kids and support them in what they do. I get a lot of appreciation from them, so it works both ways.
