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.
I’m sharing this post with Rural Thursdays and This or That Thursdays  and Thursdays Favorite Things Hop – won’t you come join us?
