He made his move

So I haven't written anything here in a while..a long while.
But I do take care of two blogs, one for the New Haven Register and one for the Valley Arts Council.

That's my excuse!

Yesterday we moved our son into his first apartment. It's in Brooklyn.

He landed a job in Manhattan and has been commuting for two weeks from home while waiting for the apartment to be ready. Now his commute is much shorter!

Cameron explaining to Ralph how he is going to arrange things in his new place.

I was happy to meet several of his neighbors, who welcomed us, held doors for us, and explained how to operate the old fashioned elevator (the building dates back to 1927).
Two women introduced themselves and wanted to know Cameron's name. Friendly folks.

This is a lot different than dropping him off at a dorm at college. A lot different.

Safe to say I'm sad and proud and happy for him all rolled into one.

And we wish him all the best as he makes his way in the Big Apple. Love you always, Cam!
