I dropped my son off at the airport this morning. He’s on a 10-day adventure and I’m left with a funny feeling. It marks a change in my life. A shift. Some people call it the empty nest syndrome. Whatever… I called my brother. He has three daughters, the last one just graduated from college … Continue reading That Funny Feeling
