The images and materials in Red Maple speak to the growth and changes my son and I experienced in 2014. Lance turned fourteen, grew over 6 inches and already stands two inches taller than me. The teenage mixture of high-pitched squeaks and deep-throated mumbles has taken the whole year to become familiar. As I look at this boy who’s no longer a little boy, I wonder will he see what I see in him? Will he stand confident in his intelligence but also in his humor, his quirks and his passion and knowledge of military airplanes? Am I doing all that can to prepare him and how can I really protect this boy who’s moving further away from being my little boy?
