Father’s Day, 2020


I hope you will forgive me for not writing anything more than this quick note today. It is Father’s Day, and I have successfully avoided anything remotely smacking of responsibility.

I would like to leave you with this photograph, taken by my wife about seven years ago. This particular arrangement was put together by our youngest, who was three at the time. In this image, he is using his older brother’s Star Wars action figures and a book from when his sister was his age. Had this been his sister at three instead of fifteen, there would have been a photo of 12-inch GI Joe action-figures dressed in evening gowns and Barbie dolls fully equipped with WWII and Vietnam era weapons. His older brother, in turn, would have been hammering away with his toy tools whilst watching cartoons.

So, for those of you who are fathers, who still have fathers, or who have simply enjoyed a day of peace, I leave you with this image of the Rancor reading to stormtroopers and a Dewback.

Have a great evening, and I look forward to creating something tomorrow.
