A really cool guy …

Happy Father’s Day everyone! My dad was a unique soul. A rock musician most of his life, then a photographer after becoming blind. Yep, you read that right … BLIND! He was still able to see some light after a rare ocular melanoma and subsequent surgery took his sight. He described his remaining sight as if he was looking through a clear shower curtain with Vaseline smeared all over it. My dad loved photography but never thought it would be an option for him again, but it was! He persevered and began photographing what he could see, shadows, light and darkness. The results were simply amazing. Sadly my dad passed away a few years after being diagnosed and losing his sight. I am thankful that he didn’t let his disability stop him from seeing the beauty in the world around him and that he was so willing to share his perspective with others. His legacy remains one he can certainly be proud of. I know that I sure am. 

Well, I hope you all have a day where you celebrate a really cool guy!!!

  

True heroes …

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to the men (biologically connected or not) who willingly and lovingly are raising or did raise up a child. To the ones who stood up, stood in or rose to the occasion to be there for a child. The positive male influences. The figures that remained constant or at least remained long enough to leave a lasting impression. To the ones who led or lead by being a strong example. To the men who were, are and always will be there. The providers. The boo boo kissers. The ones who teach respect for oneself and who ease the pain of life’s lessons. Today is your day … and I truly hope you enjoy it!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you celebrate a true hero!!!
