daddy's girl - spt Originally uploaded by dressform.
there is so much i could say about my father. and he deserves a tribute the size of the grand canyon! and so for once i will try to put him center stage...
my dad is often the quiet one. the unsung hero. he is incredibly sensitive and tuned in to what people are thinking and feeling. when i was a kid and had a bad dream i could go to him.... in fact often in dreams he tried to rescue or help me.
he encouraged me to love reading.... to engage in smart banter.... to try and make people feel comfortable... to follow my dreams [and i mean MINE - not his, not anyone elses]
he always helped me pursue my whims.... roller skating, skate boarding, bike riding, bowling.... even golf - to this day i still can't stand it - but he [and my mom] love it!
he is usually a ham in photos... making funny faces.... which i love. he always asks me questions about art - even the stuff that he doesn't get - he wants to... because it is important to me....
i love this photo of us b/c i am wrapped up in his arms. and this is always how he makes me feel. safe, loved and secure.... thank you dad.... you are certainly a huge part of my personal history.
