    I heard a poem by the same name as this photo and wish I knew who wrote it. I tried googling, but didn't come up with the one I was looking for. Anyway the poem is about a man coming home to his father's farm after being gone all his adult life and the father asking his son if he would help carry the firewood. The son says yes, but doesn't exactly hurry out there, you know? He finishes his coffee then goes up stairs to put really thick gloves on and is taking his time about it. He looks out the window and his elderly father is already out there carrying the wood himself in these cracked arthritic bare hands and the son felt ashamed of himself. I'm making it seem really lame, but it was a good poem.
    The picture the poem sent was very much a comparison between the son's city paper work easy going hands that were soft against his father's. Almost like he didn't work at all and he was still just an infant. So it's not just the name that made me think of the poem when I saw your picture. Anyway... I like it. Thanks for posting.

    Just seeing a baby gives me affirmation in the future, but this shot showing this child being cradled in and protected by this man's hands reminds me of the truth in the song, "The whole
    world in His hands."
