Saturday was perfect.
I have to say that I haven't been that happy in a very long time.
There were several moments when I sat in the family room, next to someone quite unexpected, and just listened to the conversation buzz around me, the Beatles or whomever playing on the stereo behind me. People who'd never met before were having happy little conversations.
Two people who I'd never have pegged as hitting it off now are making plans to hang out.
The laughter, the smiles, the fact that people stayed longer than they intended.
It was the best graduation present I could have possibly imagined.
