* so, fatherhood...

what is there to say that has not yet been said? cliches and stereotypes hold a certain power within the fact that they hold a certain truth. i am in the midst of the greatest endeavor of my life-- and it becomes so much more than that with each second of holding my daughter.

this morning, she opened her eyes to mine as i watched over her dreaming expressions. I WAS THE FIRST THING THAT SHE SAW TODAY... to say (merely) that i was moved, amazed, indeed, brought to tears by this actuality, would be an understatement of the rawest insensitivity...

It is all different now and forever, no? Welcome to the greatest art. I've no doubt you are just as amazing of a father as you are a painter.

But I still get bragging rights because I was doing it double time!

In all seriousness, enjoy each new moment. It only gets more amazing, humbling, faster and deeper.
