College Bound

Post Comment

Ten years ago, my son was getting ready to head off to college.   I was prepping for  the “big talk”– full of advice, wisdom learned the hard way, and most of all, a pep talk  on studying hard, doing his best, and  being a gentleman to everyone.

Rather than the long-winded talk I was planning to give, I gave a small talk and handed him a poem to read and hopefully,  keep.   It was called, “The Man in the Glass.” You can read it here.


In the decade since he went off, I forgot what I said, but I was more than happily surprised when Robert told me recently  he has the poem in his wallet.

Isn’t it great when they listen!

To all the parents preparing to send their sons and daughters off to college—my best.
