Men of Men
Here's my Dad & Uncle (also my godfather) having a bit of fun at our local. Since I've been out of the water with my post-op ear, I decided to use the opportunity to go watch them slide the other day, & to grab a few photos. So here they are: Shane & Rhett, identical twins in their late fifties, both grandfathers, playing in the sea on their self-made surfboards. So much of what I understand about so many significant things in life - about being a husband, a parent, a Christian, a surfer, a shaper, a dreamer, a maker - I owe to these two wonderful mentors. Watching them surf together makes me a very proud son & nephew, & very grateful for the heritage of these men of men.
