There She Went!

The Artist took off today on her overnight. She won't be back till late, late, late, tomorrow night. Smiling, excited, happy, confident---quite different from last week---she was telling me not to worry! Such an order is hard to obey however; I kept waking last night out of fear that I, the Waker of all but the Agent, would oversleep and she would be late and miss the bus. I'm presuming that tonight will be an uneasy one for me as well; waking every hour or so fearful that I missed her phone call. (She has my cell phone in case she becomes homesick. The potential loss of the cell phone due to the normal inattentiveness of children was vastly outweighed by the potential security benefit to my darling girl.)

By the way, for those who missed it, the Agent introduces himself on my blog with a couple of criticisms. If only he were incorrect in what he said! But truthfully, it makes me smile. I like being defeated by my children. I like how they are turning out; strong, wise and wonderful.

(pssst, Agent, is this better?)

"strong, wise, and wonderful."

Strength, physical strength, is of little importance. Rather, strength of will and mind are what matters. Wisdom is nothing without proper implementation. If one who is wise chooses to keep his wisdom to himself, he is no better than anyone else. As for wonderful, that is all a matter of opinion. What one veiws as wonderful can vary greatly depending on the person. However, all that is really important is what you think is wonderful.

In conclusion, I would like to thank you for your compliments. Also, seeing what you have done with this site, I am forced to applaud you. The world needs more people like you.

Now is the time to slink back into the shadows, watching, waiting, until the time comes again for me to come forward.

Remember, The Agent is always watching.
