Running on from the previous blog. This photo I got of our oldest son, Bert on our walk today. When I got home and put this on the computer and saw what I had, it was an emotional moment. One dog looks to be looking forward to a gate leading into the light and one dog looks to be looking back and Bert a young man at the cusp of adulthood looks contemplative. Bert is 15 in his last year of secondary school and he is at the cusp of adulthood. He has plans, dreams and if his first toe dip into the outside world goes well, next Autumn he will of flown the nest. Of course my wing is always here for him, if he just needs a moment to steady and warm himself. We tell our children, don't ever be afraid of failure. Just think of failure as an elimination process towards finding what you want to do in life, what makes you happy.
I'm not sure which medium it works best in, so put it as it originally came off the camera and in monochrome.
Just adding this song by Seasick Steve because I can, it is awesome in the true sense of the word awesome and because, everybody does need a place to lie, a place to cry. a place to die. 'In their own home.'
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
― Samuel Butler
