Fishing on the Brain?   3 comments

Last night I was sitting at the table with my three-year-old son, Shepard, who had asked me to get out the paints so he could do some painting before bedtime. So I did. He painted his usual stripey-stripe painting where the water from the watercolors saturates the paper so much it begins to turn back into the pulp it was made from. Lovely stuff if you’re a parent or grandparent.

I, on the other hand, had just spent a day at the office trying to forget about fishing long enough to do whatever it is I get paid to do, and now had the challenge of trying to forget about fishing long enough to be a good father for another hour. But, when I put the brush to the paper, this is what happened. I think I’ve got fishing on the brain…

  1. I wonder what the fruit in the trees means? I think Freud would have had a hay-day with you!

    Looks like some good water. Maybe we’ll fish there this season.

  2. The fruit definitely has something to do with breasts, don’t you think?

  3. You don’t even want to know what I think.
