One hand on the guitar

If you’ve ever been sitting in front of your computer and only half-listening to a phone call or family member, this excellent post should give you pause for thought.

Very, painfully, true. In my case it was newspapers. My father just could not stop reading the newspaper to pay attention to me. But I have pictures, taken by my father, where I’m reading a newspaper while my kids are sitting next to me.

At times I was painfully aware of how quickly they were growing up, and I wished they could remain as they were a bit longer (then felt guilty for wishing something so selfish). But other times I’ve spent too much time on something pretty irrelevant in the bigger scheme of things, and I wish I had played with them more.

The post put me in a really sad mood – I think most people have both experienced it, and been guilty of it.
