It starts with joy—because where else would it start?
Fantastic story. And writing stories is also a great way to understand our own emotions. Seems like you gained a lot from this reflection.
This is brilliant, Garrett, what a wonderful childhood memory and origin story. And it speaks not just to your own family but those two generations of men many of us remember in our own grandfathers and fathers. Well done!
A great read Garrett. A great memory and reflection you've shared here.
