The sun shines so brightly on this day of days
Fifteen years ago as I stare into your
Eyes and promised to never leave your side. Oh how life has challenged that promise over the years.
I severed your connection to the flow
Of life that fed you and was the first to greet you into this world.
My life has never been the same.
Charged with honor and pride I stepped forward a new man with a new name as you called me Dad.
You are the gift of all gifts the light of all light, you are my son and I love you more than the air I breathe.
Happy Birthday Boy ‘O
Dad.

So I think I might have figured out part of the reason I’m in such a funk. It’s May I hate May, my Grandmother Ruth passed in May and my Dad died in May. I have out up this mental shield of denial since dad passed in 2007 the day before my birthday about it but every year since I get wicked depressed and withdrawn in May and it always takes me a while to figure it out.
So happy ef’n May 😛

I know I said I wasn’t going to turn this into photo sharing time but even I thought these were worth sharing.

I have no real time frame in this it was at the farm. I was little and there was flowers. 🙂

I know I’ve posted this painting before but since I painted it specifically for my father it seemed appropriate.

I couldn’t figure out how to take a photo of me lol so the old mirror trick. And yes I wear a right hand ring.
