Playing tag

junior high at rest

Looking out my window on this last day of the school year, feeling relieved, grateful, and a bit spent from last night’s Blessing and Sending ceremony, I see our junior high students on the playground, playing tag.

Such delight and such freedom. Adolescents on the verge of adulthood, yet they are able to revel in childhood games without self-consciousness.

They are secure with themselves and each other, so they can simply be with each other, playing like brothers and sisters, enjoying their last moments together before their summer break begins.

It is an uplifting scene for me on this day.
