Attached is a photo of me feeding my daughter Alexandra, born six (6) weeks premature. She is three (3) days old in this photo. I finished my first visit as DDGM-50 to Hill City Lodge and came back to the hospital so I could feed her and see her in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. David’s Hospital North Austin. My wife was also in the hospital recovering from the birth. I love the photo because I think embodies a personal meaning of being mason, being a better father: after my first DDGM visit, I came back to feed her and be with her. I also love the imagery of a mason helping the next generation.

The photo was taken on my iPhone 11 Max.
