Happy Father’s Day

June 21st, 2009 · No Comments

My dad is a good guy. I really enjoy the talks we have on the phone and in person. That was not always true. When I left for college I did something that hurt his trust and he let me know about it in a letter that smacked me in the face when I was all alone in a new state at a college where I didn’t know anyone. That ate at me for years, not the part I played. But the actual letter motivated me to prove him wrong in so many ways.

As time went on I forgot about the letter and had more important things in my life push me. Also as time passed I began to understand what a true gentleman my father is. I also understood that I was a young punk/jerk and deserved every word in that letter.

My father and mother did their very best to raise me in a very diverse household. They embraced art and shared their passion and love with my brother and I and that is now incorporated in our lives today.

My father got his masters at Columbia University while studying motion pictures. He went on and got a Ph.D. in Fine Arts.

Last year I had some frequent flyer miles that were about to expire and I asked him if he would act in an episode of Corporate Assassin. He agreed and I flew him to NC to participate.

He has a great sense of humor and was great in the role. I do watch and cringe that my dear old dad is dying in one of my creations. I could feel terrible or even guilty when his day comes. But I do not find that true, it was a great experience that I shared with my dad and it gives me so much joy that he is so proud of that episode. Every day is father’s and mother’s day to me and I’m so grateful to have them in my life. I love them with all my heart.

To all dads everywhere…Happy Father’s Day.
