(song/animation completed 5/18/2009)
With summer vacation fast approaching, I thought I had already written
my last song of the 2008-2009 school year. Then a joking exchange with
an administrator about performing a song at graduation led to the idea
for an ode to our departing seniors. Ultimately I felt that the flurry
of year-end school events had become too crammed full to include any of
my fine musical talents at any of them, but the production of this song
went forward nonetheless.
I only regret that the seniors have already had their last day at school, so I can’t play my musical adieu for them. Graduation this Friday will be the next and last time I see them at a Lusher event.
