I had every intention tonight to do a post with the promised images of Helen Dillon's summer garden.
But then I got the news.
And then I started celebrating and dispensed with the notion of being even remotely productive.
My wonderful, brilliant, open-to-everything, tenacious, intellectually insatiable son
had just been notified that he had been named
a FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR FOR 2013.
I tried to find an appropriate picture of my boy to accompany this post...
but came across this one...
And decided it was more appropriate...because truly...it takes
a village to make a Fulbright Scholar (read about the program here)...and this is the village
that made THIS one...(he is on the far left.)
Congratulations family. I am so proud of you.
