I found these drawings when my family was cleaning out my dad’s office. They’re probably from when I was five or six years old. Dads are pretty special people.
Exploring Balinese temples. Note: My entire family is wearing bare feet because that’s how Dad rolled.
Dad took us out paddling a lot. Here he is with my sister Summer in Western Port Bay.
Dad in the bungalow office he built in the backyard.
Today we’ll be sending my dad off at his memorial service. Thanks, Dad. xo
