If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Ten Random Things I Love About My Son

  1. He loves to walk.  Even though he couldn't wait to get his license and loves to drive, he still really prefers to walk somewhere if he can.
  2. His beautiful blue eyes.
  3. He loves animals and treats them with respect and care.  My animals all flock to him (especially The Brute) when he comes for a visit.
  4. He loves to learn and years of bad school experiences hasn't beaten it out of him.
  5. He is exceptionally self-aware.  The masculine world requires him to hide his sensitive nature but he never loses touch with it. 
  6. He strives to be "an ethical man."
  7. He is only interested in dating women who are strong, intelligent, independent and "a good conversationalist."
  8. He is an amazing travel companion.
  9. I can talk with him for hours and never get bored.
  10. He calls me "mama bear."

He sounds like an awesome young man. :)

He sounds outstanding, even if #5 on your list made me sad.

Maybe if more young men like him could stand as examples of both strength and sensitivity then the rest of them would see that it's okay to have feelings.
