I wrote this essay over five years ago, in 2015, when our first child was born and we were living in an apartment above the Bronx Documentary Center in the South Bronx. It’s wild to look back and see where I was at then. I’m in a much different place, in mindset and place (we live in Oakland, CA, in a small and cozy house with a wild and lovely back yard). I’d say I have a lot more peace. If anything, being a Dad has brought me closer to many more new and interesting complexities of our shared humanity…
