Into the canyon
"So where is the naked photo of your husband?" a reader asked.
There are some things in the world you can depend on. Spring will come, the sun will set, and my husband will never pose naked for my blog. It's not that he doesn't look good naked: he's actually in great shape. But he's far more reserved than I am, an introvert by nature, and he is quite happy not to appear on my blog, with or without clothes. So all I can offer my readers is this glimpse of a faceless figure with a backpack strapped onto his shoulders. He was hiking in a black t-shirt and dark grey zip-off pants, the same outfit our oldest son always wears, and in every photo I took, I was struck by how much he looked like Boy in Black. They have the same build, the same walk, the same quiet manner. And Boy in Black would never pose naked for the blog either. Like father, like son.
