University of Arizona


Apologies to all for my absence these past few days. Judging from the market, little in the way of opportunity was lost.




By way of explanation, this past weekend was spent getting my youngest daughter ready for and then dropping her off to begin her path as a college freshman at The University of Arizona.



A mixed blessing of pride and sadness, an emotional reverence for the days past and her journey just beginning into adulthood and maturity.




The more things change, the more they stay the same.





It may as well have been me, walking the grounds of the University of Michigan so many years ago.





Excited, intimidated, full of hope, full of fear, all mixed together beneath the desert blue sky reaching far across an uncharted horizon.
