My father is 60 years old but he is younger at heart than I am at 29. He’s in fantastic physical shape thanks to a lean and healthy diet, daily bike rides and a naturally high energy level. My dad doesn’t watch TV or eat fries. He works in his garden, chops his own firewood and brings fresh homemade pesto to his neighbors.
My father is tremendously funny, kind, intelligent and light. I aspire to be like him throughout my life. To take time every day to both laugh and reflect.
For my wedding, I chose Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young” as the song for our Father/Daughter dance. I love the original version, but today I stumbled upon this video of Norah Jones singing it for the Steve Jobs memorial and can’t stop listening.
