Entwistle, Alberta, Canada
This was the first time i had the opportunity to show my Dad, in person, what i do for a living… first time seeing him in a few years actually…. so i took him out of the busy city of Edmonton, to this relatively quiet spot on Pembina River. This is close to where my family always used to go in the summers when we all lived together in Edmonton. i must say it was great to see him again. an emotionally satisfying experience. seeing him smile fills me with a warm nostalgia. And i’m continually in awe of his patience. a kind of zen master in his own rite; always content exactly when and where he is. . . more than i can say for myself. but he inspires me to do better, especially when dealing with other people, or circumstances i’m powerless to change.
