My son is clean. Oh, don't get excited folks. He is clean because he has been in county jail for almost two months. The month before he was incarcerated was very, very bad.  I could have done a zillion posts during all that time but regurgitating the drama that has been my life lately is just not my style.
I have been on a cleaning frenzy since he was arrested. A much needed one at that . While cleaning last weekend, I came across a newspaper clipping I had kept from 2006 which announced that he had been accepted into a prestigious fashion design school on the west coast.
I looked at that face smiling out from the article and flashed to the face I had just seen a few days ago. It did not compute.
