Amor vincit omnia

You know what’s a really good thing? A good dad. Mine was a stay-at-home dad for the early years of my life — the guy who invented a whole cast of characters to populate the original stories he told me everyday — the guy who was the only dad in the pool at swim class at the Community House — the guy who, when facing his own death, gave me his take on the meaning of life by quoting Chaucer.

So Happy Birthday to my dear old Daddy Jim, who would have been 86 today! Wow. What you would have thought of the 21st century, dude… Wish you were here.
