The Old and the New...by Diane Ogden

So this is Taos, New Mexico!  And this is son #4 who can't say he was ever a middle child. Well sort of he was.... Two families, three brothers, him being the "baby," until the finale came along, being a girl...the ONLY girl which put him in some sort of unknown category called, "dumped by the only girl after four boys." Sad, yes....A Mom's hindsight...Oh yes! But look what came out of all that neglect and middle child syndrome and lack of a father figure syndrome and so on...  This twenty seven year old man has got it all....
He buys all his clothes at Goodwill because he wants to. Check out his tan patent leather shoes for God sakes. I am hooting by myself in my computer room.  He meditates, scrutinates (is that a word) everything he eats, thinks, and drinks. He loves the world and everything in it, he excepts no negativity into his earthy space, and he is genuine.  I find this picture of him amazing in that it represents his "old ways."  He reminds me of a James Dean of his time.  He has done commercials, TV extras, TV Reality Show in Beijing China, he travels the country and world giving back to it, the world that is. That all being said leaving out much...the old truck he is leaning on represents his love for the mundane, the un-corporate America, the real. Some people say he should "work" harder at a "real" job. But I say he does and he is. Honoring his path might be an honorable thing to do. I do. One of these days "Alice," this young man will out-do the "B-Pitt man."  I speak the truth....
