SOCIETY OF GRADUATES
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2004
LEADERS TODAY:
FINDING THE GOOD
“HOLDIN’ GROUND”
06 October 2004
The rules break like a thermometer …
Quicksilver spills across charted systems.
We’re out in a country that has no language,
no laws
Chasing the raven and the wren
through gorges unexplored since dawn.
Whatever we do together is pure invention.
The maps they gave us were out of date
by years.
Adrienne Rich, Twenty-one Love Poems

the world it serves.

I’m sittin’ on my stage-head lookin’ out at where
Skipper Joe Irwin’s schooner is ridin’ at her
moorin’ … thinkin’ about how weak are the things
that try to pull people apart – differences in
colours, creeds and opinion – weak things like
the ripples tuggin’ at the schooner’s chain. And
thinkin’ about how strong are the things that
hold people together – strong, like Joe’s anchor,
and chain, and the good holdin’ ground below.
Ted Russell, The Holdin’ Ground
Life is somewhat like when you are
on a boat and there is a wind
blowing.
You cannot control the
wind, but if you set your sails right
you can get to your destination.
William Hornady
Peace of the flowing stream be yours,
Water flowing, cleansing and healing.
May you be refreshed.
Peace of the flowing stream be yours.
Peace of the gentle breeze be yours,
Winds blowing, stirring, cooling.
May you breathe deeply.
Peace of the gentle breeze be yours.
Peace of the fertile earth be yours,
Land giving life to diverse creatures.
May you walk on firm ground.
Peace of the fertile earth be yours.
Peace of the twinkling stars be yours,
Lights shining, sparkling, beaming.
May your journey be filled with wonder.
Peace of the twinkling stars be yours.
Diann L. Neu, Return Blessings
