Life On The Run
She is in and out of school as she can afford it. She is working her way thru. Her goal, a wildlife veterinarian. Aliza is everything I think we all want to be. She's a nomad. She has been everywhere..alone. Just packs a bag and goes.
Her next journey, which begins in days..is Australia. Freaking Australia I tell you. Just packing 2 bags..and will be gone a year. I cannot imagine. She stood here in my living room a few minutes ago (her and Josh are headed the Imax to see Harry Potter in Tally) and I was just in awe at her bravery, courage and self assurance. I asked her did she have a place, a job, a plan..she said she was looking for jobs..everything else was unplanned..winging it!
I love that my son is of the generation who doesn't think they have to get married and have 2.5 children by the time they are 30 years old. What exciting lives they all have ahead of them..because we have raised them to be different. To explore..to divide and conquer. Living life man...living life.
