We’re in Vancouver, celebrating Kate’s graduation from the University of British Columbia with a ( I might have this wrong here, and if so, will correct tomorrow) BFA in Art History and Medieval Studies. Her beau, Brendan, graduated at the same time with a degree in Visual Arts and Theater. But really, we’re celebrating them–their creativity, their smarts, their hard work, their partnership, their delight in showing up each day and making stuff happen. We’ve had cousins and grandparents, and getting to know the other parents. Kate even let Kathleen (Brendan’s mom) and I spend a few days together unsupervised. It’s been a total blast.
The internet is super slow here, so only one picture or two….the rest will come later, I promise. And so will the stories…we have plenty.
Oh, and if you happen to be the giver-outer of really great jobs to bright, vibrant, creative, tenacious and intrepid artists, I know just the two for you.
