That sound you hear? It's me humming Sunrise, Sunset from Fiddler on the Roof to myself and sobbing gently into my tea. (Actually, I'm fine but Picky Reader cried at the airport.) Vid (aka Surly Teen Boy) is leaving at 1:25 p.m. for the Philippines today. I'll see him again in May of 2013. He looked tall and strong and confident, and he will have an amazing year. Not only will he be able to take care of himself, he has the Naga City Rotary and an experienced host family to help him.
Okay. Enough personality leakage for now. Instead, let's all sing!
"Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older When did they?
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn't it yesterday When they were small?
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze."
And now I need to fumigate his room. Maybe I can use it for sewing
