My eldest and most wonderful daughter Anna finishes her last exams and moves onto university this year. Photos of her first day at school and her last today,13 years between them.
May she become a flourishing hidden tree
That all her thoughts may like the linnet be,
And have no business but dispensing round
Their magnanimities of sound,
Nor but in merriment begin a chase,
Nor but in merriment a quarrel.
O may she live like some green laurel
Rooted in one dear perpetual place.
William Butler Yeats
