My silhouette was cut out of special paper by an artist that my mother discovered in a magazine.  She sent him a photo and he cut the silhouette and mounted it on the paper you see above.  It is worn and a bit discolored.  Peyton’s silhouette was created in his 2nd grade art class.  The teacher placed a white piece of paper on the wall and took a photo.  The children were given the chance to use an overhead projector and trace the outline of the shadow on a black piece of paper.  The young artists completed their silhouette by cutting along their trace line.

Both of these silhouettes represent Peyton and myself at approximately the same age – 2nd grade.  What has always captured my eye is how much he and I look alike.   Through the years, I have thought these photos were in someway – communicating.  Yes, they are not facing one another and one is larger than the other, but in many ways they are…

Peyton and I knew one another before either one us ever had the knowledge that the other would exist.

a factoid quote – by Jordan

“The real reason the United States is referred to as a melting pot

is because

it has more active cultures than a cup of yogurt.”

Words from my son, who is now heading back to school to begin his sophomore year in college.  I said “I will see you soon” and hugged (squeezed) him very hard and left a few (okay, actually, many) tears on his shoulder.  I know he is doing what he must and doing the grow up thing but I am still a mom who misses her Pnut and a very leaky faucet.  Does any one have a number for a good plumber?   🙂

lamentations

:

:

i know he has to go

but

knowing does not make it any less painful.

:

:

it is not a ‘forever‘ goodbye,

it is a ‘i’ll see ya later‘ goodbye.

however,

inside

it is a ‘i will miss you so, so, so very much‘ goodbye

and

i cannot wait for you to come back home‘ goodbye

every line is long

patience is rapidly waning

a voice speaks quietly –

“at least we’re together”
