Learning to Fly

So, the disappearance of supports comes at a time where elder takes flight. He works two jobs now, each gained through his own volition and abilities. He will co-present with me next week at a conference (At age 17 is already an experienced guest lecturer and presenter). He held his own as a school event last night. His peers were kind, over the kind of social anxiety that he is now just learning to have.

He's behind socially. He's always been.

That said, he's blown the windows, doors, and roof out of every expectation ever had of him. He's in uncharted territory. Which is awesome and terrifying.

We're not at the summit, yet, but we can take a moment and enjoy the view....
