Granddad Jim

This blog has been mostly dormant, but a few days ago, I lost my Dad. On these pages, I have talked of my journeys as a dad, and these journeys are so intertwined with my own Dad’s path as a father. Some things I hope to learn from, and others I hope to walk a new path. Regardless, he had an enormous impact on who I am. Here are a few pics from when Reuben was born. My parents were visiting, and Dad ended up in the hospital before Reena gave birth. This short time encapsulated so much of what he meant to me. There was his illness that lasted over two decades with its hospital visits, there was his absolute joy in his grand children, and there were the quiet conversations that we managed to have in the moments that he was available.

Dad, I miss you so much.
