Zones of Subduction

Growing up, inheritance and parenthood–these themes have quietly woven their way into the Diaries’ Fabric. Whether it’s Brendan Leonard’s Go West or Steve Bohrer’s Balance, we’ve explored how parents introduce their children to the natural world. Today, Bob Nydam presents a story about the sometimes painful process of watching a child grow up. It’s a little like geologic processes at hyper-speed. Moments of calm serenity are punctuated by violent upheaval. Even when seemingly, we are in the midst of movement. We are climbers, adventurers and dreamers because these pursuits ask us to step beyond ourselves. Certainly, the same can be said for parenting.
