Today is a very special day to our family. Our son Jonathan has started his college life. Song and I know that we will be empty nesters, but we didn't realize it comes so soon. Jonathan is only 16. He has enrolled into a special high school program called "TAMS" (Texas Academy of Science and Mathematics) run by the University of Northern Texas. Although he is still a high school student, but all the courses he will take will be college level offered by university professors. We drove 4 hours to Denton, TX, and got him moved in. Our baby boy now has left home. It is a very special kind of feeling in my heart. I still remember the day I left my parents. My father removed his watch and gave it to me. I suddenly realized that I was no longer a kid any more. At that time, watches were expensive and they were only for adults. I left home, and moved far far away. I hope Jonathan will come home more often, no matter where he goes.
My today's painting is from a photo I took in San Francisco last July. A group of young AAU students were waiting for the school bus to come. I hope some of the AAU folks can see this image. They will relate to the scene immediately. It happens every morning of a regular school days. I remember I was so concentrated taking pictures. After I got the one I felt satisfied, I suddenly found out, the bus I supposed to take had long gone.
