In the span of a recent week, Don George attended his son’s high school graduation ceremony and his daughter’s college graduation ceremony.

He writes:

“[I]t made me want to write my own Commencement Address, to synthesize into some permanent word-granules whatever wisdom I’ve accumulated in my five-plus decades on this planet. In some ways it felt like my last opportunity to convey something essential, important, life-bonding, to my kids.

And so he did. His five lessons, all gleaned from his travels and applicable in all aspects of life, are in the new issue of Recce, which also features a classic Tim Cahill tale.
