Miscellany for your Weekend :: Edition Nº 028





This one’s dedicated to all the Fathers out there.

The boys who became men. And then had kids. And continually sacrificed for us everyday.
I know that my own father struggled and fought for what he’s achieved in his life.
Growing up Japanese American in the 1940′s and 1950′s in this country, wasn’t exactly a walk in the park.
Nevertheless, he worked hard and dedicated his life to providing for his family.

And that’s what I’ve learned from him.
Hard work. Determination. Adventure.
And in his own way, love.

He may not express it the way I do, but my dad is a sensitive soul and has a huge heart.
He taught me to find something I love and give it 110%.
This weekend, I plan on doing just that.
Digging into the work that I love. Putting words to paper. Preparing for a big launch.
And remembering all of the wonderful things he’s taught me over the years.

In my family at least, we don’t often lavish praise, gifts, flowers and love on Dad.
At least not the same way we do on our mom.
So in the spirit of honoring our fathers, I hope you’ll spend some time thinking about what you’ve learned from your own. And if you can, let him know how grateful you are for him.

“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.”
~Umberto Eco, Foucault’s Pendulum

Happy Fathers Day!
May your weekend be filled with family + friends + love.
