Happy Father's Day

For those of you who are able, track down your father and wish him Happy Father's Day, even if you don't feel like doing so, even if the old boy doesn't deserve it. There is power in this kind of conciliatory gesture, and that power is love.

My guess is that most of us who have lost our fathers find this day to be somewhat lonely, even those of us who have children. I don't understand it, but this, I think, is as it should be.

Happy Father's Day to all.
