Hawk and Bella at their new home in Seattle– May 6, 2006

When your son asks you for advice on whether he should take the offered opportunity that would spirit him away from home and family to forge his own path in the world, I hope you can muster up the strength to send him on his way…. As Gabran says, you are the bow, but they are the arrow. The chain of life that passes through you to them is not, after all, yours to own….. I’ll dearly miss seeing him daily. The compensation, of course, is the inner certainty that I’ve done my job well…. He’s a fully developed human being with all of the capabilties he needs to shine. He is, quite simply, one of the best that humanity has to offer. Every man should have such a fine son. His website, btw, is HawkinSeattle.com
