May today be a day of Celebration! May we recall all our hopes and aspirations, may we reflect on who we truly are, and who we truly want to become. May this day be the beginning of great, new enterprises, a liminal moment in intersecting lives. May we recognize that we stand on the threshold, and pause at the moment between being inside and out. Live in that moment, and then step boldly into the next. Aware that not all that follows will be exactly as we’d want, it will all be exactly as it is, and we will all become exactly who we must. For transformation, we sing glad tidings. Blessed Be, and Amen.
