I wrote the other day of the need to Keep Going. The Keep Going statue is the only trophy I want on my shelf just now. My wife says it’s fine if I want to accept it, but she’d prefer I didn’t start posing for it until I install a new bathtub. The Keep Going trophy is the only one worth having if you have children.
Longtime reader and commenter DadofHomeschoolers drops me a line from time to time. He’s one of the many people who let me know there are others that Keep Going. It’s much easier when you know you’re part of a quiet wave. His son Daniel is like my older son. They are too old for (homeschool) high school, but they keep going, of course. Daniel is studying to produce records, and like all people who Keep Going, he’s not waiting for a diploma to do things. Juliana Schnee is his friend, and another homeschool graduate, and they’re making recordings together. Juliana is writing music, and performing it where an audience can get at her — the bravest thing I know.
I offer no advice. Just a heartfelt wish that they Keep Going.
