Philosophical Thought of the Day

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Today I was asked what it is like being a father? 

To be honest it's incredibly hard to describe the feeling I have now that I am one. It is a feeling that you simply have to live through. Having the task of rearing a child is an awesome responsibility in life where there is no substitute. And for me the greatest reward is simply watching my son smile at me. For me, in life I cherish the subtle moments more than any of the major ones. The rationale is simple; for every major milestone we reach there is an expectation to celebrate them all with good reason. But I live life for the intimate moments...the moments that can slip past us if we are not aware...the moments that seem so ordinary until one day we wake up yearning to relive them again.
