Serendipity

This is Wilmington, Delaware (USA).

About 15 years ago, I verbally accepted a job in Wilmington that would mean I would only be home on weekends. That night, when speaking with my son (about age 8 at the time), he told me it was OK that I would not be able to see his baseball games during the weekday and that we would still get to see each other on the weekends. That message still cuts through me today.

The next morning, I apologetically declined the offer. Now, my son lives in Pennsylvania and Wilmington has become the mid-point where my wife and I meet him for quick weekend same day visits.

It seems I was destined to spend time in Wilmington eventually.
stunning photo and beautiful story - where life takes us hey :)

Reminds me of the song, "The Cat's in the Cradle," but you made the right choice. In addition to photography, what other artwork do you do?
