Love to your Fathers

fathers day humans newyork

“My daughter died of a brain aneurysm when she was thirty.  She wasn’t a baby but she was my baby” via Humans of New York

Have you heard of the awesome tumblr Humans of New York?  I might be the last person to find out.  Brandon asks random strangers if he can take their photograph and posts them on his blog alongside a caption with a quote or a short story from the person.  This one (above) got me all choked up.

On that note, I hope you had a nice Daddy’s day?  For me, it was another one spent 6,000 kilometres away from my Pop.  We’ll be reunited in one week… right before his 60th birthday… time is an unstoppable beast!
