I am sorry to have a Father's Day review so late in June. I would like to share that I myself had a wonderful Father's Day experience via a metal shop and a welding class. If you ever want to boost your masculinity and sense of testosterone driven creativity, I suggest a welding class from a local artisan!
I will have to upload images another time, please let your mind wander of the imagery of thick cloth gloves, protective coats, and full face mask gear tinted to extreme welding levels for sight protection!
Sparks flew, metal turned to liquid form and created a molten seem between a metal base and 3 inch diameter cylinder steel tubing. I welded a conceptual tree with a trunk and 3 branches, it now sits proudly in my office high atop a shelf looking down on other office belongings, or rather standing proud in an office of creative surroundings!
I took a few minutes to also view facebook posts the day before and after Father's Day to read relatives posting messages about their Father's which was inspiring. As some men pass away from old age, their offspring remember them for the lessons learned and life they were given with their Fathers. I understand that not all men understand how to be Fathers, or GOOD Fathers at that. I am hopeful that everyone has a chance to learn from someone in their life they can consider a "Father" to them in life, or be able to impart some sense of wisdom or knowledge onto the next generation of youth.
So as this Blogtemplation is reflective, I would be ever so honored to hear about your experiences with Father's Day this year of 2013, and your views or thoughts on Fatherhood, and Mentorship, and Reflection of lessons learned from some Father figure in your lives.
I hope you all are enjoying the moments that family are brought together via a calendar phenomenon of Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and any other such summer event that brings families together.
Happy Summer Blogtemplations everyone, please comment, share and write back to keep the discussions going, the thoughts flowing, and the contemplation of life alive!
