An avid surfer, yoga teacher and dedicated father, Heaton Graham shares how his son has anchored him to the present, and what he hopes to pass on from his practice.
When my son was born I had been going through a very difficult time. We had just moved to a new town with different working and living conditions, and of course, a new child -- a lot of transition. It felt as if a heavy fog were drifting in from the stress and lack of clarity to where I was going.
As my son and I got to know each other though, his presence was like a lighthouse in the middle of that fog. I started to realize that for the rest of my life I would be his Papa. Regardless of any other circumstance, I would have his constant light to help guide me.
