Last Class

School started in my district today.

Those children who started kindergarten today are special to me--they're my last class.  If all goes to plan, when they're done with school, I'm done with school.  When they graduate, I retire.

I don't know them yet but I already feel a kinship with them.  They're my graduating class, just as much as '83 was :-)

I'm looking at incoming freshmen the same way. Of course given the economic hits my family has taken since 2009, it's just as likely I will be working literally until I drop. In a world where I have had to defer so many things in life, this is what keeps me awake at night.
