Sits

Sits

Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.


Dear John

We had just begun a four-hour drive to a family reunion so it wasn’t exactly a good time to stop; my fiance’s father John was driving and we were on a schedule.  I really wanted to take a photograph of this red barn though.  I had been talking about it for days before finally having this opportunity and didn’t want to just cruise past only to spend the rest of the drive dwelling on what I missed.  I kindly asked if it might be okay for us to stop for just a few minutes so I could set up a quick photograph.  To my delighted surprise, John agreed and patiently pulled his truck to the side of the road.  It was in that moment I knew John had accepted me into the family.

On all our trips together since, he made a point to pull over whenever we saw a beautiful landscape.  He was an incredibly patient and loving man.  On May 4, John passed away from a cardiac pulmonary embolism.  He was 68.

I am incredibly grateful for the time I had with this charming, good-spirited, amusing and lovable man.  He will be deeply missed.

For being such a cloudy day, I sure got lucky with this burst of sunshine on the marigold field. Talk about a magical moment! Sometimes things just work out.

Taken atop the sand dune cliffs along the Pacific Ocean in Montana de Oro State Park, this photograph recalls one of the most ridiculously beautiful sunsets I’ve seen.
