One of my favorite things about being a dad is showing my son, Clive, the little things that I know he’d miss (at this point) if it weren’t for my showing him. A few months ago, I pointed out that you can see through the cracks on the pier to the water below. He’s been hooked ever since.
Hopefully he’ll grow up thinking that even though mom and dad have travelled the world over, there’s no point if you’re going to miss the wonder right in front of you (or beneath you ;). And that is why I don’t care about the stares that the two of us get when we’re lying on the ground looking through cracks on a crowded pier :)
Clive, never stop looking through cracks. You never know what you might find.
