After My Own Heart...

I was gone all day today, leaving my 14 year old son home alone to do whatever struck his fancy. At dinner he told me he had read some and worked on his novel some. It wasn't until later when I rounded a corner and happened upon the above scene that I realized how much he is like me. Next to the chair he had piled up his favorite books, the laptop resided on the ottoman, a music player was atop the kitchen counter and the dog bed had been pulled in close. All of his favorite things gathered round, making for a cozy spot to attend to his interests.

A world of paradise for your son -- books computer and a dog. Wouldn't it be nice if that was all that any of us required? -- barbara
