in a lifetime, there are many people, many conversations and many moments that will impact and shape you for the rest of your days. amongst these, are moments that are crafted by someone that loves and cares for us before we even fully understand the true depth of what that is. for some, it will shape our being so much so that we have no other choice than to not only return this favor, but to share the beauty that evolves from such a relationship with the world we are able to impact.

this impact is just what this short film translated to us about the important places, people and moments that ground and get photographer and filmmaker forest woodward outdoors and have allowed him to relive the things that bring his father to life. watch this short film that not only brought tears to our eyes but stole our hearts and reminded us of the necessity of not only remembering the important places, but honoring the ability to help those who have taught you to become the person you are what those places mean to them too.

 

as with age, you choose your own way, among the many faces of a busy world, may you alway remember the path that leads back, back to the important places. – dad for forest, 1986

sometimes we get stuck, in life. currents that won’t let us go. places we shouldn’t be. and as we get older, we look at our parents and we wonder what they’re doing. we think that they’re losing it.but what i realize is,

dad never had it all figured out in the first place. as much as he’s taught me and shown me how to live he’s still finding his path, just the same as the rest of us. and that’s okay.

because the joy is in the journey. no one has the answers, not even our parents. – forest woodward
