Happy Father's Day


Here is a photo my father taken in January 2011. My brother and I would often try to help my parents to shovel/snowblow the snow out of our massive driveway whenever we could. Sometimes dad just did it himself, though.

I like this photo because I think it conveys the desolation of New England winter. Those who have encountered it know how brutal and alienating it can be. But it also conveys the indomitable spirit of my father, who has triumphed over many, many odds in his lifetime to carve out a life for the Chen family in America.

Hope y'all have a happy Father's Day today.

  1. Wow. As someone who has lived his entire life in Florida, it also underscores how CRAZY y'all are not to live in a place where this isn't your LIFE for months out of ever year!

    Lol -- great pic, man. Anyone can tell how much you love your pops.
