Got in 10 miles with my son, our customary run to the park and back, the temps were sane, somewhere in the 20’s, snow falling gently. A great run with great conversation, our conversations get better and deeper as he gets older, now a college sophomore and turning 20 later this year. 20! He goes back tonight to New York to start the 2nd semester, an overnight bus with a ticket he bought from a friend as a favor because she couldn’t use it. A good person. I’m sad that he’s heading back. But getting more accustomed to this empty nest thing, as I explained to a friend earlier. Now looking more forward to spring and Boston, the week of which I next see him in New York.
