A Father's Day tribute from a son

Books are one of the ways we learn about who we are and who we might become.
Often we meet characters who point the way and inform our sensibilities about what matters. In honor of Father’s Day, let me share a passage from a son speaking to how much he appreciated her father.

“ I’m grateful to my father for many things, particularly for the way he taught me to love the natural world. One morning, when I was a child, I excitedly pointed out a mysterious circle of lush, vibrant grass in our lawn, a patters that seemed to have sprung up overnight. Thankfully, he didn’t fill my head with facts about underground fungal mycelia. Instead, he told he about the fairies that came out to dance at midnight., carelessly leaving magical traces in the grass—fairy rings.” 

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers who are either first time fathers or fathers for many years.
