I doubt my father reads my blog. It seems like its been ages since we last had a meaningful conversation. I guess for that I’m sorry. Some of it is my fault. Some of it isnt. One of my favorite memories with my Dad has always been sitting around eating Maid-Rites and talking about his childhood and growing up. Somehow it makes childhood nostalgic even to this day. I’ve recently found out my father retired from dentistry after 50 years of loyal service. He really does make me proud. I wonder if I will bring 50 years of service to any industry.
Regardless my father has left a legacy that burns bright inside of me. He’s always been an entrepreneur. I inherited that from him. I’ve got a lot of time on my hands lately. Mostly because of of my attempts to become as healthy as an individual as possible and because I think life should not be full of work. I’m pondering new hobbies, and a way to keep the travel fires burning deep inside me.
My father has always been an avid photographer, a lover of Jazz, and a creator. I to have found myself drawn to all of these things. Is it not true that we become much like our parents as we grow older and more mature. I remember as a child saying “I will never be like my parents” , and here I am only 27 and I can see a lot of my own Dad in me.
Happy Fathers Day Dad, and to all Dads and fatherly figures who have been there for me through the ages. I hope you have an awesome day.
