College towns, by nature, have a lot of moving on. Above, we see people clearning out an apartment on Tate Street getting ready to start a new phase of life. Perhaps the young man, with the hand truck and the dresser, was a student at nearby Greensboro College; possibly UNCG. Tate Street and the College Hill area have a lot of student housing. However, since the area is an historic neighborhood, the old-timey feel of yesteryear exudes from the houses, buildings, yards, old trees, and sidewalks.
We like to look at the scenes, like the one above, as opening new doors and exciting times in the lives of young adults. Students are lucky, as in the case above, when parents are nearby to lend a helping hand and help in these junctures. Parents are lucky to have the health and opportunity to be involved in these transitions. Where is life taking the young man in the photo? Where will he be ten years now? All the best to him and to all recent graduates. We'd like to think he leaves wiser, and armed with a marketable skill. Perhaps, we are lucky and he is just moving across town. When you see these scenes in real life, consider providing words of encouragement to the person armed with furniture going to and from the U-Haul- whether they are in Greensboro or another part of the world!
Happy Saturday, folks!
