And the Question of the Week is… What are the most important things you learned from your father?
My answer is after the cut…
Oh… everything? To be fair, though, this isn’t as much just from my father as it is from the Committee of G-ma, daddy, Bill and Doris, Aunt Gay and Uncle Joe.
To be patient; to listen; that everybody has a story, and most people just want to be listened to; to appreciate many different kinds of music; that you should play it the way that you feel it; that it’s important to not become a workaholic, yet also important to not shirk hard work; to be helpful to those in need; that not only should you share what you have, but sometimes sharing the last thing you have is the most important thing you can do; be kind; have fun; enjoy life; play as hard as you work; take care of books; have hobbies; there is beauty in everything, but sometimes you have to look hard.
