On her way!


My brilliant niece got into dental school today!
 This is her dream. And she's making it happen.
Joy all around, big smiles and deep exhales.

The photo of the dentist-to-be was taken by my daughter last August in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia. She had already sent in all her applications. I'm struck by how much she looks like a young version of my mother, her grandmother, in this photograph. She made her grandmother proud and happy today; her parents, her aunts and uncles, her sister and cousins and other beloveds too! Everybody here is walking on air. You'd think we were the ones who got into dental school!
