Rainmaker

We spent the weekend in homemade rain.
Watering crops.
And ourselves.



Somedays I watch Mason and see myself twenty years ago.
My dad once told me that when you have a child,
you get to grow up all over again.

The curiosities.
The challenges.
The "ignorance is bliss" mentality.



Growing up is like anything else.
You learn the rules.
How certain things work.
And, maybe more importantly,
How things in life will never work the way the rules say they should.



So you adapt.
And you bend the rules, or remake the rules.
Or you follow the rules of others and always wonder,

what might have happened if I had gone the other way?



The crops need watering.
But . . .
Who says the sky doesn't need watering too?
