Although it's Labor Day and not Veterans Day, any day is a good day to honor those who've served.

The first scene shows an adult son assisting his father, one of America's few remaining World War II Vets, into the waves... for what could very well be one of his final dips. Every step of their journey together toward the swelling sea is a depiction of dedication, compassion, and enduring love.

In the second photo, a passing mother tenderly touts her smiling young son into the ocean as the father and son begin their exit. These moments in time captured on camera touchingly tell the metaphorical story of the circle of life and accurately reflect my personal vision of yogic philosophy.
