This includes my Dad’s favorite chair in a favorite room.
I took this shot, visiting my mom, a few months after he passed away in 2015.
Naturally, the Photos widget chose Father’s Day 2021 to present it to me from all the images it could have picked.
To all the fathers, to all the people who have fathers, to all the people contemplating becoming fathers, this day is richly varied, emotionally. I’m sure my experiences and yours overlap at least a little. I feel you.
If anything, being a father has shown me so many ways to improve who I am and what I do in the world. It is supremely humbling.
On this day, I wish you peace, joy, and love.
