From twenty-six to ninety-three, my Dad was always my best buddy. Thanks to our profession,
I've got great memories and a story to go with each photograph!
by Skip Cohen
If you're a regular reader, then you know on Sunday mornings I ALWAYS go off-track and run amuck with my thoughts. There's no telling where I might go, but it's always miles away from the business of imaging.
We've all learned a lot through the pandemic. As we're hunkered down and often feeling isolated, that old line about life being too short couldn't be more accurate. I often wonder what my Dad would be saying as he watched the craziness in today's world unfold. He passed away almost five years ago, but I've got so many incredible memories I still enjoy thanks to photography. Intangible moments turned tangible - that's the magic of what's in your skill set.
So, to all you Dads out there - Happy Father's Day. Cherish your kids and your spouse, who played a significant role in making you a Dad! And to my own Dad, who I've missed every day since you passed away, I love ya. Thanks for everything you taught me, and so many incredible memories, and watching over us now. As I've written in the past, I couldn't be more proud to be Ralph Cohen's son.
Wishing everybody a day filled with love, peace, and respect for "the old man." Don't let the pandemic hold you back from making new memories.
"Life is too short. So, break your silly ego, forgive quickly, believe slowly, love truly,
laugh loudly and never avoid anything that makes you smile."
Happy Father's Day!
