Beaver Graduation

“At graduation, after the diplomas were handed out, my class sang the Beatles song ‘In My Life.’  I’m sure that to the faculty or other students it seemed an appropriate choice of a song for a group of people whose lives were about to change forever, and who had happy times to look back on, but to me, it sounded like a dirge.

Mother, decked out in one of her Chanel suits, took my picture in my white cap and gown beside Robbie in the pretty, tree-lined courtyard in front of the school, where the Beaver graduations always took place.”

from Chapter Eleven, Smoke and Mirrors
