To B From Mom

I know that you are 29 years old, and need to spread your wings and fly away from this port town we call home.

I know you haven’t lived with me for a while now, but it doesn’t make my heart ache less. My heart walks outside of my body wherever you roam. 

I know the changes in our family these last two and a half years have been difficult for you, and I can’t seem to help your pain go away. 

I know I have to be strong when I hug you tomorrow and send you on your way, but I will still cry, as will you. 

I know that you are my first born. You are my pride and my frustration, my joy and my pain, my angel of light and of darkness. You are my comfort and my irritation, my babe, my little boy, now a grown man.

I know I had to let go of another kind of love two and a half years ago, and I know you have to make peace with that as well. 

I know I love you fiercely and will always be on your side – my love is unconditional. 

I know that there is a whole world for you to explore, and a whole self that you need to create. 

Good luck and Godspeed, my son.  Know that I love you and that the road home will always be tattooed on your heart.

I love being a globe trekker. I have started later in life, but am enjoying the journey. I see beauty in the mundane and the sublime. Sometimes, views and vistas evoke feelings in me that I am not eloquent enough to describe, so I let a photo do the talking. I hope some of my photos touch you in the same way.
