Another Bend in the Road

Late last week I passed my comprehensive exam, and yesterday I officially completed my Master's degree. Two years of student life behind me, a new phase of my life begins.

Sometimes the most momentous occasions in our lives are best appreciated without major fanfare (there will be enough of that come graduation). So after I turned in my final reports yesterday, I met a friend for coffee, and later walked through my beautiful neighborhood with rock and roll pumping on my iPod and my camera in hand, soaking up the glory of Portland on a late May day, warm and humid between rainstorms, and overflowing with green. Celebrating. Unsure as I am of where my life will go from here, between the music in my ears, the beauty all around me, and a supreme sense of accomplishment, I felt satisfaction beyond compare.
