Teach him to fish.
We did not - well yes, we did fish with him when he was little, but it really was other friends that introduced him to it.
My boy loves to fish & he is getting better at it each time.
He has always been amazed with fish. It amuses me how long these guys can sit and sit and sit.. lol, then they get a nibble and the thrill is there!
I enjoy it but not nearly as much as I enjoy drawing.
I enjoy the relaxing on the boat and conversation with my son. ❤
Anyhow I am thrilled Storm LOVES to fish. It has connected him with nature and it is a love I can see will always be there. Awesome. Teach a man to fish.. He is into remote places though and a mom worries, especially after I hear a bear showed up in their camp one night! But - got to let that go. My baby turned into a boy and that boy is now a man, what an awesome experience called LIFE. He inspired the drawing above.
Yes, here I take an opportunity to tell you it is because of Cannabis he can sit, sometimes just sitting is painful for people. So is sleeping. How many of us take each for granted all the time. Myself included. He's gone fishing as I type this. I ask do you have your meds?
It's not an easy task BTW, even getting the boat launched he does all by himself. I am useless - Not as useless as his friend who forgot to hold the rope when Storm was parking his truck... LOL he had to jump in to then save his boat!
Hee hee hee, glad it was his bud and NOT me!
So when I remind him to wear his life jacket, I also ask if he has enough meds.
If not, it would become painful. We have forgotten, or we have gone out thinking we would not be as long as expected... anything when in pain is NO LONGER enjoyable .
My son needs his medicine to function. Thank GOD it works for him and is keeping him as healthy as he can possibly be! Waiting ... any moment now...
BTW - I hope my son has protected lakes to fish in as he gets older.
