I introduced my Good boy Mr Shakes a while back. Now let me say a few words about my father, a tragic yet uplifting story to share.
My father is currently in the hospital (ICU), as he has been on and off for 2 decades, each time just as dire. Although the care and expertise is usually lacking, he seems to power through it! His will to live is unrivalled, of course with the assistance of my mother and me. Mostly me. I am his long term caregiver you see and so I don’t have time or money for anything else.
He is also the reason for my involvement in photography and by extension this forum. I am glad that I have found a place here! As the years passed, I didn’t want the gear or his passion go to waste. I picked it up despite the pain associated with it. Debt, anger, damaged equipment and relationships. But there are humorous and fun stories too.
I don’t know why I am saying this here and now, he may or may not survive this time, but I think I should honour him right now through the gratitude I have for him, while he is fighting for his life yet again. If you pray, pray for him, or support him in kind words, which I shall read out to him (or in deed, if you are so inclined). My father got me into photography. He is brave, kind and awesome.
