Kid has mastered the slow-roll at age 11. Can’t believe it…11.
Keep a bit of that swagger always. Laugh at your dust, but don’t stare too long at your shadows. Bodysurf–it’s one of the few things you can do your whole life. Make sandwiches for your buddies and wave at pretty girls on the beach (one of them may end up being your beautiful wife). Laugh at yourself and at others you meet in books. Take time to be alone. And, because I’m your Dad, “always watch a sunset, always smell the flowers, and always pet a nicey (good pets of all kinds).” Oh, and “predictable is preventable”…remember that too–it’s a good one that I wished I would have learned a few decades earlier. — Love, RST.
