The other day I had coffee with a friend, an artist and writer, who had recently sent his daughter to college. Not long ago, she called him to share the good news that the school cafeteria has soy yogurt—a type of joyous, off-the-cuff communication that was so unlike the defiant, secretive adolescent he and his wife had been living with. The college girl is launched; her father bereft.

"I was involved with her every day for all of these years, and she was so interesting to me," he said. "Now what am I supposed to do with my life?"


  1. I was happy to find this blog. I hope that perhaps the fact that there is only two posts means you have adjusted. I haven't yet. :-(

  2. Hi Lily;
    I have been neglectful of this blog, but those days are over! I really appreciate your comment and hope to keep exchanging with you.
