As I consider next steps with my daughter, I consider next steps for a friend moving on to being a bishop.  I also consider next steps for myself.  It is often difficult to tell who is launcher, who is launch-ee,  I guess it depends on who is looking, and from where.  The next thing always remains to be seen.

So much is said
About launching our children
Into college.
Truth be told
We are always launching others
Or being launched ourselves
Into the wider Universe
And Beyond.
Sometimes we help prepare
The launching pad.
Sometimes we stand on the pad
Others have prepared for us:
Our arms are outstretched
For the very next thing
To come.
