I arrived in Dallas Tx on Saturday. I am here for 10 days visiting my son. He graduated from college and is now working in Dallas. Oh, to be young again. Life's blank canvas in front of you - your brush poised to paint your own picture.
I can feel that he is pretty proud of himself. He has an apartment and all the trappings. I asked h where his fleshy friends are - he doesn't seem to have made any in Dallas - this working from home thing. I am proud that he is concerned about his health. He exercises and seems to be trying to make healthy eating choices. Although his first love was/is soccer, it seems that bike riding is his new passion. I'm pleased to think i had something to do with that - we used to do a bike fundraising event. We started when he was 5 and did it every year it was organized until he graduated high school.
My son is grown up - I am happy. I can release the balloon and move on to continue painting my life's canvas with broad free strokes.

    Oh my dear friend… Congratulations!
    That is a wonderful feeling indeed.
    Your pride in him just emanates from your blog and that makes me happy.
    It’s actually a good thing that your son is getting back into biking because there are biking clubs everywhere so he could make new friends that way.…like-minded healthy friends.
    Enjoy your visit to Dallas… Hope you get some decent weather for walking.
