the council of dads (1)

Father’s Day is this coming Sunday and that brings me back to Bruce Feiler’s book, The Council of Dads, that has much that is valuable to say about fatherhood and about cancer. I’ll share a quote with you…

“Cancer, I have found, is a passport to intimacy. It’s an invitation — maybe even a mandate — to enter the most vital, frightening, and senstive human arenas. It’s a responsibility to address those issues we rarely want to discuss, but we feel enriched when we do. …”

Feiler continues…”In that spirit, I hope you find occasion to ask a difficult question of  someone you love, renew a long-forgotten promise you made to yourself, or spread a little magic of your own to keep the monsters at bay.”

So well said, especially at this time of year.
