This is my son, back when he was an awkward teen running xc his first season 10 or 11 years ago. This morning I dropped him at the airport and said goodbye as he goes on a major adventure: 6 months in Thailand to teach English.
After four years of high school and another four of college, he spent the last year as freelance writer before deciding it was time for him to stop talking about teaching English abroad and go for it. Now, he's on his way and I have "Sweet Baby James," the lullaby I sang him so long ago stuck in my head as I hold back tears missing him already.
Now he and his sweetie are winging their way on a big adventure that will change their lives. I wish them well and look forward to hearing their stories and seeing their pictures and all I can do is wish them safe travels.
