It's my dads birthday today! I love my dad so *so* much!
He's an artist too. He's an author. He has written and published a couple of books and has collaborated on another. But more than my creativity I steal from my dad his stubborn streak. Ohhhh, it's nasty! But I love it. I love his being stubborn and my being stubborn and the stubborn stubborn stubborness of it all. I also admire his strength. In fact most of the things that I like about myself come from my dad.
I really wish I could be there to celebrate his birthday with him.
It makes me sad that I'm not.
When I go back to New Zealand I think I'm going to stay there for a GOOD LONG BIT.
I want to be with *my* family for awhile!
As for tonight I shall light some candles and dance for my dad's birthday.
Happy Monday (Tuesday!) everyone.
