Today is not the first time my eldest has asked me about meaning and contentment in life, and it probably won’t be the last. He’s approaching eighteen and finds his workload increasing and free time decreasing, so he’s starting to grapple with the things we grapple with as adults. And since I don’t have all the answers myself it can be hard to provide the words he needs to hear. But I do my best and tell him it’s mostly in the doing but we also need ways to find it in the being, and he seems to feel better.

Mildly traumatized after starting the spring clean with my teenager’s room. I’m not sure how he manages to get food on the wall.
