I am struck again by the colorlessness of our lives when he's gone from them. No one plays the guitar (though really, someone *else* is supposed to be practising, though I don't have the heart to enforce it, energy-sapped single parent I now am).
No one else surfs the internet for motorcycles, yelling out every now and then for the rest of us to come look at the most recent cool one he's just found, enthusiasm spilling out all over the place. He NEEDS for us all to see each one, loving it as he does.
He is one of those people from whom more than the average allotment of life spews forth. We all love to be around him. So much that is yellow and funny and warm emanates from this boy. We can't wait for him to come home.
