The end of the school year is always a gentle reminder that it is the nature of things to end. It is both a time for lamenting what has passed and celebrating the journey so far. It is a time for clearing out the old in order to make room for the unknown. It is a time for taking a respite, a breath, before the next chapter begins, as it always does, with new faces and new names. Familiar and yet foreign and the cycle begins anew.
