Life, Hospice and an iPad

Last year I went to stay with my parents when my father was on hospice care… I picked up my camera and started taking pictures of him in his hospital bed… with the view of the mountains just outside the window and his iPad in his hands, he continued to fuel his curiosity as a teacher and writer, staying connected to the world around him, even in what we believed to be, his final days. A year and a half later… he’s still curious, still connected, still writing.
