Pen and Prosper Honors Father's Day
It's been a busy week, peeps.
Backyard work, basement work, client work, prep for my annual "Poetry on 'da Patio" and birthday celebration.
But, I wanted to take time in the midst of the madness to touch base, and reflect upon and honor tomorrow--Father's Day.
No one can dispute that they are the backbones of strong families and solid communities.
Boys learn how to be men at their hands. While daughters learn how to love through their example.
No matter how "mature" we become, we never outgrow their influence or the need for their support.
Even music icon Luther Vandross devoted a beautiful tribute to his father in the song "Dance with my father." (If you have an opportunity to listen to it through YouTube or other avenue, you'll discover why it was a big hit for him as well). Simply lovely.
So, for all the fathers out there who are among my readership, for your father and mine, for the young and the old, and for those who have ended this life's journey, I send this heartfelt thanks and love.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY...ONE AND ALL.
