When I was asked to give the commencement speech to the 2019 graduating class of my alma mater, Iona College, at first, I did not think I should accept.
I was unsure if I had anything apropos to share. But then, one looks at one's life, and I realized I could share my real-life journey's quest to find the balance of a career I loved...a true passion, and the goal of balance with family life.
Dare to dream, dare to find your God-given talents to make a difference in this life. Take that leap of faith …no regrets


Day behind me, the mind can’t rest
Cloak of night comes serenely dressed
Day drenched in reality
Night gives way to the fantasy

Because the mind is slipping into that
Alternative universe
Not any more chained to the
Grind of the daily curse

And here we go from reality
Mind knows no boundaries
Daylight comes back and
Releases my fantasies

Dream on …Dream on …

Yesterday is today’s memory
Tomorrow's dream is reality
Controlling the future, the destiny
Becoming the future, you want it to be

Because the future is in good hands
Because they’re your own hands
Commit to your own dreams
And then make them the plans

And then by taking the leap of faith
Making it go the way
Dreams to reality
Making tomorrow today

Dream on …Dream on …
