Hugh has arrived

Hugh has gone to Carlton just this past Tuesday. I got a text message telling me he had arrived, not to worry.

Tonight, Thursday, I get a phone call. He describes his room – five foot by eight. Tiny. He’s signed a one year lease for this. It has no cupboard, but he’ll fix this. There’s no furniture either. The Catch 22 in all this is that he doesn’t have transportation to move anything from a thrift store or Craig’s list or equivalent in Ottawa, even if he did find something he liked.

His Internet has been connected up – we can e-mail. Cell phone to cellphone calling is too expensive. Land line to cell is even worse. How life has changed!

I miss him and I’m proud to see him go forward to grasp his destiny as he sees it.
