Most days I want my blog to be so profound and relevant. So I struggle to think of something worthy of blogging about.
A lot of days I turn to my photography in hopes that as it develops it will become an example of great art through photography – again probably profound and relevant. (Please note: I realize I am not there yet.)
But the reality is I assess that most of my life is not profound, and is only relevant to a few people.
Then I realize that raising a child is profound and relevant. For the whole world. For each and every parent what they do as a parent has a profound and relevant impact on the world. For each and every child, what their parents do is profound and relevant.
Even in the hiking and playing and including a friend.
I know I’ll want to produce the best photographs and have something profound to say from time to time (although probably pretty rarely will I reach those goals), but for today, allowing my son to play by the side of a lake after a vigorous hike is really one of the most important things I’ve done recently.
