Indisputably, Part 2
In a couple of weeks from now, my eldest is back to school. That is, shes heading back to college to begin her sophomore year. Ive been making deadlines since she was in third grade; in all that time weve been talking, she and I, about books, about writing, about art and music. Shes won a contest for writing a book (in fifth grade!) and shes played keyboard and sung in public (at the county fair) and shes performed at Carnegie Hall (with her high school a cappella group.) For all of those things I have enormous pride. But this fall shes truly busting my buttons, for shes taking a class in Creative Writing.
