I’m just returning from a small workshop in the city of Watts. It was a gathering of children their fathers. I facilitated the group on how we, as men, can build on our relationships with our children through using storytelling as a mechanism to bond.
This was one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had in a while. Not only were the fathers receptive but the mothers present were as well.
Anytime I have an opportunity to gather with other men, fathers, and grandfathers… I jump at the chance. That type of work rarely pays big dividends financially but the intrinsic rewards are beyond measure.
This gathering reminded why I love my work so much.
