Blog Guelph: orange jacket family portrait

orange jacket family portrait, originally uploaded by vw-busman.

I could easily post a hundred Gems of the Day from VW-Busman's photopool - so many artistic, unusual and delightful shots got faved in my process of deciding. But this classic family pic captured my heart and put a smile on my face despite the sadness that lurks within.

Hard as it is to accept, Chris is giving our community an incredible gift. It's so easy to mindlessly barrel through a day, week, month, lifetime. Unless something happens to snap us awake - like when a young dad gets diagnosed with terminal cancer. Then, what is truly important comes into sharp focus. Hearts open, a community knits together and the love bomb drops. It is a privilege to feel so deeply, even though it hurts like crazy.

Thank you Chris. Peace and love my friend.
