my son, my oldest, working on one of his last high school assignments
with a friend ..
cooking a german meal from scratch ..
kalbsrouladen mit nudeln..
just earlier today i glanced down at a kitchen chair.
a clear bag was laying on it with some type of clothing item in it.
i looked closer at the writing on the bag ..
"proper wearing of your graduation cap & gown"..
yesterday he was fitted for his tux .. :)
he's going to the senior prom ..
with his girlfriend.
not the young lady in the photo though.
that's just a good friend.
in a couple of months he will be going off to college (university)..
the college of his choice ..
and that's as it should be ..
i was kind of hoping to inherit the studio space he created in our basement ..
the space where he has created sculptures, taught himself how to make paper,
painted, pieced together sculptural jewelry pieces ..
but alas, he bequeathed the studio space to my youngest son..
it was his birthday present to his little brother ..
tsk .. artists .. lol ..
perhaps i'll just have to gently and slowly nudge my youngest out..
who actually spends more time on the piano upstairs ..
the piano has practically taken the place of any electronic game we have around here ..
the piano and his bike ..
which he'd be riding a bit more..
if we weren't practically drowning in flash floods in our county these
past several days ..
(this watery area is normally a large field area)
i've been a bit busy (but then, who isn't too busy) with
end of the school year work, family, being a sounding board to a very close and intimate family member when stressful situations arise in the business....
this sounding board has absorbed a fair amount of sound lately ..
it's feeling rather askew ..
i could stand to go camping again ..
