…don’t need you anymore…

 

Father's Day

Someone said, “Parents need to raise their children
so when they become adults, they don’t need you anymore.”
An unintended consequence I found is “I still need them“.
This Sunday is Father’s Day.
Happy Father’s day to all the Dads.

The Blue Lagoon

blue lagoon, iceland

The Blue Lagoon is a very popular tourist attraction in Iceland. From their website – “The Blue Lagoon was formed in 1976 during operation at the nearby geothermal power plant. In the years that followed, people began to bathe in the unique water and apply the silica mud to their skin.”
At the time we arrived (my wife, daughter and myself) it was 55 degrees outside. Freezing. I was literally shaking. I jumped into the “indoor section” of the lagoon just to warm up. When Deb and Ashley appeared, I followed them to the exterior lagoon, shivering along the way. We all very quickly got in. It was wonderfully warm.
We floated around for a period, soaking in the warmth as the mist surrounded us. Some areas of the lagoon were warmer than others. That’s where we stood.
Eventually we made our way to the “facial mask” area and applied the stuff. Obviously, I put too much on. We soaked in the geothermal water for an hour. We exited the pool, first standing in a waterfall to wash us.  We dressed, exited the building, hopped in the car and headed to our destination – the Hotel Ork in Hveragedi.

A photograph of a grandmother and grandson. My Mom and my son.
Photograph made many years ago and still one of my absolute favorites.
My son is no longer a little boy but a successful young man.
And my Mom passed away in 2004. She was the best.

Sunrise in Monument Valley

Monument Valley, Arizona, Navajo Nation

In 2006 I finally made the trip to Monument Valley. I have wanted to visit for years.
It is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I arrived early and captured a sunrise image
of my son and daughter surrounded by the incredible beauty of the Valley.

Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry passed away yesterday. He was 90. He was a favorite of mine, have several albums and saw him in concert at the Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ. (Photograph above from a concert at the Capitol.) My favorite memory goes back to when I discovered his music. I was in Woolworth’s in Paterson, NJ with my best friend, a musician. We were thumbing through the record albums (I’m talking vinyl) and I found my first Chuck Berry one. Excited, I turned to my buddy and asked, “Who’s the black guy?” He couldn’t stop laughing. In the 1970’s I made Super 8mm movies with my friends. I used Chuck Berry’s music as the soundtrack to them. I loved his music. Still do. Still have that album where I discovered he was a black guy.
