If only disappointment as an adult was as simple as what’s felt by my daughter when she was young.
She wanted to be in the front seat on the amusement park ride.
The Man and his hats.
At times, when you can’t make a decision,
just go with everything.
You can feel the music while only
seeing the trumpet.
What a musician does.
Happy 4th of July.
Somewhere in Wyoming on a trip out west,
these folks were On the Road!
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.
Absolute joy appears on the face of a student during her college graduation.
(FYI – that student is my daughter.)
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.
