Graduation Advice:  Transcend:  Maintain FL 44; Make A Few Discrete Dives And Diversions To TPA (Traffic Pattern Altitude) (May 16, 2022)

.  .  .

K          “Transcend.”

.  .  .

K          “Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ’22 . . . transcend. . . .  If I could offer you only one tip for the future, . . . transcend.  You have been studying and partying and extracurricularing at a frantic and frenetic pace.  Now is the time to learn to. . . . transcend.  Maintain Flight Level 44 [44,000]; make a few discrete dives and diversions to TPA (Traffic Pattern Altitude) to participate with other members of the community.  Try with all your might to take flight from the Möbius Loop of stupidity, dishonesty, hypocrisy, incompetence, indifference and arrogance when you can.”

. . .

K          “And eschew fear and wear sun screen and hearing protection and chainsaw safety chaps.  Eat dessert: First.  Learn to tie a bowline (and a bow tie).  Stop, pause, think.  And . . . transcend.”

. . .

J          “Go East, young person.  Go to Rome, D.C. and get in on the looting before it is too late.”
