101 Things I Don’t Know How To Teach My Son (But Wish I Could) #21 Contrasts

Dear Son,

One morning while I was working out west I had a rather unusual experience.

As usual I noticed the ugliness of the place around – a large construction site that had room for little nature.

But almost immediately I was struck by the profound stillness of the morning.

Then I noticed the sky, overwhelmingly beautiful as the sun was preparing to rise.

In the stillness I realized that my own psyche is much like this place – there is an ugliness, a beauty and a profound stillness. I would go so far as to say that we’re all like that.

Love Dad
