A Father’s Shadow

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK


When a man becomes a father he suddenly casts a larger shadow. One that grows bigger with the years. One that poops and pees everywhere. Keeps him awake at night. Bangs things and breaks them.

A shadow that follows him, watches him, learns from him and tries to do what he does, tries to stand and stretch taller and further than him.

Let’s have a look at some fathers and how their growing shadows connect with them.
