My dad, lost in the World section of the Sunday papers.
As he grows older, and wiser, he takes more of an interest in the world, in politics, the politics of human nature and thought, philosophy and poetry.. he even started writing poetry of his own last year…
When I was in high school I watched a program on TV about Octogenarians who were doing the most incredible things, writing books, making movies, traveling, studying, teaching, dancing etc.
It changed my world view entirely….
Imagine then, my absolute delight, that my dad at 70 is still growing, still exploring, still thinking, learning, and engaging with the world in a myriad ways.
Impressive!! :)

Wildly alive, wondrously living, learning, laughing, loving.. a poet, dreamer, photographer, not-so-serious-philosopher – treading lightly on this earth, traveling with a full and open heart, sharing my experiences, my writing, my photography. Here. With you. :)

  • Thanks Tony! :) That’s my dad – absolutely absorbed in the news and utterly unaware of being sneakily photographed!
