Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to you all! Listen to your fathers, kids; he didn’t get those grey hairs for nothing.

Sometimes a Man Stands Up During Supper by Rainer Maria Rilke

Sometimes a man stands up during supper

and walks outdoors, and keeps on walking,

because of a church that stands somewhere in the East.

And his children say blessings on him as if he were

dead.

And another man, who remains inside his own house,

dies there, inside the dishes and in the glasses,

so that his children have to go far out into the world

toward that same church, which he forgot.
