This is the last picture I shot of our son Eric before we dropped him
off to the dorm at Oklahoma City University. His talent is now theirs to mold,
his to achieve.
I'll miss hearing him rehearse his double bass. (Sometimes I would
move from the den to the living room so I could hear him play.)
Natchitoches will be quieter now; Oklahoma City will
gain from the beautiful noise my son makes, and we'll willingly drive
seven hours to hear a symphony, just because Eric will be playing.
