Letting Go

Xander got his learner’s permit, but he wouldn’t let me take a pic. In lieu of that, I drew this sketch.

(My first foray into illustration!)

In talking with my friend, Tatau, about teaching his seven teens to drive, he reassured me: “You have to trust that their survival instincts will kick-in and keep them out of harm’s way…but their instincts can’t kick-in, if you always grab the wheel.”

Letting go doesn’t come easily for me, whether in the car or on the road of life. I sometimes think my teen’s years are more about teaching ME that lesson, than about anything THEY might be learning right now.
