During this time of year, everyone knows someone who is graduating from high school or college or a professional program.  In two weeks, my son will be graduating from the School of Visual Arts with an MFA.  I wonder who chooses the person who does the commencement address.  It is not always a former graduate or teacher or politician.

While reading a Brain Pickings newsletter that a colleague sent to me for another reason, I saw a posting from Pratt (my other son’s alma mater) on the side bar.  It is a commencement address given by Patti Smith.  Some of you may remember this poet, philosopher and singer from decades ago.  I found it very interesting and wanted to share it with you.

PS. The video is not the best, but the audio is great.
