My parents are in town. I love, in particular, that my dad is here, who is not always able to come. I think my dad and I get each other. He's a photographer in his spare time and he finds the details interesting. But he's not the type to snap and snap away. He's economical in everything he does, the way he talks, the way he behaves. It's meaningful, reliable. He is one of very few people in this world I completely trust. He is intellectually curious in the most refreshing way. I love that the two of us walked after breakfast and he later sent me home without him because he saw a beautiful tree he wanted to go back and look at and take a photo of. That's my dad for you.
Until the end of the week, my parents will be here to watch over the kids. It's a gift to me so I can go to Boston and perform with my chamber group. It makes me especially happy that my boys will have time with my dad.
