The morning is heavy with moisture and all light is muted by the inversion of a cloudy, gloomy, June day. Such days are conducive to thought; so my pensive nature finds solace in the shadows of Descanso’s redwoods. I watch the wood witches of early morning; they dance among the trees. Their frolic induces countless visions. Only I can see them! The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I’ve a deadline to keep. I hesitate. Writing a graduation message to my daughter Sabine is intimidating.

All stories interest me, and some haunt me until I end up writing about them. Certain themes keep coming up: justice, violence, freedom, respect and loyalty. Since my earliest recollection as a student of Latin I've been intrigued with the words Semper Fidelis (always faithful). That's exactly what loyalty is - faithful to a trust, to an ideal, to a cause or to another. Rudyard Kipling's “Thousandth Man” venerates the mere idea of loyalty. Loyalty is foundational to civilization.

Sabine seemed concerned as I left for back-to-school night at LCHS. She said, "Daddy! Whatever you do, don't embarrass me!" After 13 years of being a dad, I'm now considered an embarrassment. Actually, it's a reputation that is most deserved; I can tell you stories that would make your hair curl. Since Simone and Sabine are in the seventh and eighth grades respectively, Kaitzer and I decided to split our forces at back-to-school night. She would cover the seventh grade, I would take the eighth, and at some predetermined time, we would switch.

All week I had a strange feeling, like something was about to happen. I hadn?t felt that way since my days of debauchery hanging in Lucy?s Tiger Den in Bangkok, Thailand. I was younger then and was both foolish and fearless of heart, inflictions often found in youth. For a few days I noticed an unusual scurry of activity and conversation between Kaitzer and Sabine. Something was in the wind; I could smell it! While sitting at dinner, Kaitzer asked me, ?Can you take Sabine to the dance at LCHS on Thursday?
