Psst……I am going to let you in on a secret, I have very limited understanding of what my son does in his career. The other night, I talked to him after almost two months of silence (except for an e-mail of one or two sentences) because he has been so busy. That’s a good thing – I’m not complaining. It means he is finding fulfilling things in what he is doing and that makes me happy.
For many adults in my generation, being “in communicado” may seem a little odd. According to an article I just read, my generation is filled with hovering parents of adult children who find it difficult to let go and let their kids live their own lives. http://bit.ly/7y1k85. Don’t think I can be accused of that since we don’t speak once a day, once a week and occassionally not even once a month. I am not an errant parent, just letting my adult child spread his wings and grow in his career and life. It does not mean that we don’t have a close relationship. As they say, “Children hold their mothers hands for a short time, and their hearts forever.” Or is it ” Mothers hold their childrens hands for a short time and their hearts forever?”
I do have fulfilling feelings as a parent, however,when my husband and I are the first people our son calls when he is excited about something, has concerns, some information to share or he just wants to talk.
Curious what our conversation was about the other night? It is full of promise. With my son’s permission, I am going to share it. Here is a link that will let you in on our secret. For his sake, I hope this film project comes to fruition. http://www.indiegogo.com/ThoseWhoWait.
What is the part he plays in this production? He is a visual effects artist, specifically a colorist. Not sure what that is? Neither was I, I had to look into it . http://bit.ly/KHabA.
Now, I have a better idea of what to talk about next time he calls. I already knew he is involved with bright people, inspiring landscapes and scenery, vivid imaginations and a range of creative ideas. The life of an artist and elements for good filmmaking. http://brewingdigital.com/.
