Our son Jon starts a new job today! After a long interview process he was hired as an entry-level reporter for a newspaper syndicate a half hour away. Who knows if it will be the right “fit” for him, but to land any full-time job in this rural area, much less in journalism, in this bitter economic climate feels like a feat. His father and I are very proud of him.
Last night he stopped by so I could trim his hair. He is so tall that I had to have him sit on a low stool so I could reach his crown. When he was a child I called him “Little Man.” Not any more.
Next month he will be exactly the age I was when I came to the Adirondacks to interview for my first full-time job.
Where did the years go?
