Graduating today

This week I am graduating from Columbia’s MFA program. I am very excited about this. Three years ago, around this time of year, I relocated myself, my wife Amy Ettinger, and Robert (our huge, obese cat) to New York City for the program. I can’t be there in person, so I’ll have to hum the “graduation song” remotely while I extend my congratulations to all the other writing folks who are getting degrees this week:
