This is my granddaughter Katie. She is about to be hoisted into the air some three or four feet above the waters surface and is having the time of her life. Her father, doing the hoisting, is passing on this small tradition that was passed to him thirty years ago. It is what we do, all of us. By example, through pure joy, we pass on some of the most important things in life. Yes, its the little things from which we build a lifetime of moments. I am privileged to bare witness to the passing of the torch. Bravo!
