Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day all of you Dads out there!

Dads are terrific, aren't they?  Having one, being one. GA was a total Daddy's girl; I miss mine every day.

So if you are blessed with having yours still alive and kicking, pay homage!

Sometimes a Man Stands Up During Supper
by Ranier Maria Rilke

Sometimes a man stands up during supper
and walks outdoors, and keeps on walking,
because of a church that stands somewhere in the East.
And his children say blessings on him as if he were dead.

And another man, who remains inside his own house,
dies there, inside the dishes and in the glasses,
so that his children have to go far out into the world
toward that same church, which he forgot.

Thank you, Daddy
