My house is quiet.
One child away at college has a profound difference on everything.
But the thing that I'm noticing most is the spaces. The silences. The lack of music or yelling to turn down music. Less showers being taken. Less discussions about what to eat, discussions about emptying the dishwashers, arguments about walking dogs.
It's adjusting to a new way of being. A different way of staying connected. Forging a path both to stay in touch and to be ok with how things are here.
