Vacation images - peace by the pool

I love this image of Zach for so many reasons. Beyond the visual one of my son alone with his thoughts in a quiet place, there's the flashback I have to my own long history with all things aquatic. Whenever I would swim, at some point I would find some time to sit on the side and relax to the gentle reflections of the water's surface.

It's where I learned to appreciate that life doesn't have to be lived foot-to-the-floor every second of the day. If this picture is any guide, history has an amazing way of repeating itself.

All that aside, it's a damn good photograph, just as a photograph.

All of those things and thoughts you had as a young man, are coming to pass once again, isn't it nice sometimes just to see through the looking glass at your past, Now as father, you are able to share those things with him, and live through his life as well. Family means alot to you. That is a gift.
