a factoid quote – by Jordan

“The real reason the United States is referred to as a melting pot

is because

it has more active cultures than a cup of yogurt.”

Words from my son, who is now heading back to school to begin his sophomore year in college.  I said “I will see you soon” and hugged (squeezed) him very hard and left a few (okay, actually, many) tears on his shoulder.  I know he is doing what he must and doing the grow up thing but I am still a mom who misses her Pnut and a very leaky faucet.  Does any one have a number for a good plumber?   🙂

lamentations

:

:

i know he has to go

but

knowing does not make it any less painful.

:

:

it is not a ‘forever‘ goodbye,

it is a ‘i’ll see ya later‘ goodbye.

however,

inside

it is a ‘i will miss you so, so, so very much‘ goodbye

and

i cannot wait for you to come back home‘ goodbye

the drive

the wheels of youth

roll slowly

or

so they seem

to those who are young

but

somewhere

between

what was

and

now is


the wheels have become

fleeting

Well today is the day – the film is complete and being submitted this morning and then it is placed into the hands of the faculty.   He is a very tired young man and he is swamped with work.  (After all, he is in college – a double major of, not just film, but business.)  His school year is winding down… he will be home next weekend…then he gets his wisdom teeth pulled!

I must say, I am liking the editing beard.  I told him that his face is now hairier than Pee’s!  I wonder what she will think?

take flight

ς

from

this view

there is so

little to see.

one must fly away –

high above one’s fears

to find a life

of purpose,

healing –

love.

“I have to make a movie…”

little man with Lego’s

dreaming his magical stories

bigger man with camera

filming his magical dreams

A future Spielberg?

A future Spielberg?

back in 2008 – leaning against Barney, scouring Entertainment Weekly magazines, with his 6′ Oscar behind him

big camera

2014 – using the grown up ‘stuff’

when Jordan was little, he would say ” I gotta make a movie” and then run away… to his toys and Legos…

NOW

when he goes away to school, he tells his crying mom

“I have to make a movie”
