The Reason for “An American Father”

Fatherhood is knowing yourself

fatherhood is accepting yourself

it is the safety of strong arms

in the introduction to strong winds

Can I write a newsletter about fatherhood and what it means in the world?  How can I write about what it means in the world if I don’t know what it means to me.  Fatherhood to me is a responsibility to be better, it’s is the only true second chance in life.  It is the allowance, no, the catalyst for the refreshment of your soul, your innocence, your spirit, your truth, your peace.  Can you have those things apart from fatherhood, of course.  Refreshment is the word.  Whether your world has become dull and bleak or whether you live in full light or somewhere in between Fatherhood is the best reason to start over…

Which begs the question why?  Why not start over without being a father, before being a father, having never been a father?  What do you have with fatherhood that you don’t have without it?  A child.  But what is a child…

A child is the product of two people’s love for themselves and for life

A child is the product of sex

a child is the product of two peoples pleasure

A child is the product of a sperm meeting an egg

So what transforms the biological

to the psychological

to the philosophical

How does the cellular mass that is a sperm

and the cellular mass that is an egg

transform

to the child that smiles at me.

It’s is the answer of all questions…

it is the only answer of life…

the first answer

survival

Does a mother bird think her offspring

adorable

Does a baby lizard

coo to his mother

What is the endearment?
