We’ve all asked ourselves interesting questions. What if we’d lost WWII? What would the world be like if people lived for hundreds of years? How would chairs be designed if our bodies had four legs? Photographer, Sacha Goldberger, thought up some of his own intriguing questions… What if Superman was born in the 16th century? […]

A photo posted by Charlie Capen (@charliecapen) on Nov 11, 2014 at 9:22pm PST We are comprised of light and dark, my sons. Some of us hide it better than others. Never compare your shadows or your sunshine against another’s. The aperture of you is all you need to work on. Let more light in, […]

My Wife Just Said… #186

Posted by on November 10th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“When Finn asked me to be Princess Leia for Halloween I thought “no way”. How could I hide all my imperfections in a very unforgiving white dress? But seeing this sweet boy’s eyes light up when he saw all of us dressed in costumes was beyond amazing!” -Avara   A photo posted by Avara Capen (@ithrowtp) […]

Parenterms: “Adultolescence”

Posted by on November 7th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Adolescence refers to a person in the process of developing from a child into an adult, but the idea of what an “adult” is seems to have lost a lot of its former meaning. The more time marches on, the more it seems to skip and moonwalk, and we’re entering an “Age” where men and […]

“Daddy? How does Dark Vader eat?” -Lucas (2014, 5 years old)   To answer your question: the Disney store. That’s where we got these ridiculously amazing PJs. (ALSO IT HAS A TINY DETACHABLE CAPE!) There he stood, my little Dark Vader in his new PJs. My feelings were conflicted at first, the wincing inner nerd […]

Daddy Vader Says… Rank Side of the Force

Posted by on July 25th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Sometimes your baby or child does things that impress you beyond the normal “wow, he squeezed my finger” or “holy crap, she ate the whole thing!” Stuff that’s extraordinary. These achievements can even get you thinking they’re prodigies at something, or what they’ve done is somehow foreshadowing of some specific future for them, some destiny. […]

My Wife Just Texted… #156

Posted by on April 14th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

My wife and I meet in the middle on many things. Sometimes, it’s compromise. But most often we have the exact same thought about situations, people and decision-making.

Winnie The Vader Is The Coolest

Posted by on April 8th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’ve read so many comic books, kids’ picture books and everything in between that I can’t help imagining random mashups of characters and plot lines. It was inevitable. One of my favorite mashups was done by an amazing artist who put Winnie the Pooh and Star Wars together. The result was amazing. Wookiee the Chew […]

You’ll Want to be an Action Movie Kid Soooooo Bad!

Posted by on April 3rd, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

It’s pretty much impossible to be a kid and not dream of being an action hero or superhero. They’re just so calm, cool and drive the best friggin’ cars.
