Subject: RE: BS: Nest - Empty or full?

Barky is off at the Conservatory most of the year and decides for herself what she will do in between semesters, with a certain amount of input from us. But when she graduates we expect she'll be making her own head of steam in the world. But she will always have a place under our roof if she needs it -- we just don't expect she will.

Of course, partly, that depends on the economy, as Mike points out. But IMNSHO, a parent should stand ready to watch fledglings fly, even over the horizon if that is what it comes to. You generlaly get as good a return in communication as you invested earlier.
