Award Shortlist   


By Sahyadri
My teenager... lost to the world and watching the sun go down. (My precious Bose head phones, suddenly became a part of his body, so did my U2 collection CDs a part of his CD pack).

He is becoming a man and I knwo I dont have my baby anymore. Its a bitter sweet pain to see them grow and soon, I know he will spread his wings and be gone, yet be there somehow, or so I hope.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hugs, Kisses, money and food....
I've got two boys (young men now) and its hard letting them go. They seem so vulnerable, much more so than their sisters, going out into the world.

Thanks everyone for your comments...
I guess, money and food woudl be god enough reasons for boys to come back.
Mick, they say , you have a daughter you have her for life. you have a son, you have him till he gets married Wink
but all said and done, teens is good... so i convince myself. the second one is standing in line, another couple of years he would be a teenager too.

What an original image this is! Makes a good mono - colour would have too many overtones (in the musical sense). And I don't think they ever really go away, do they?
