well, all week the newspapers have been full of ads for father`s day specials on everything from lawnmowers to mp3 players........motivating children and spouses to honour thier dads and husbands for thier genetic contribution.
.........................which is all well and good, because this is how modern society recognises it`s self.
via consumer products.
and if people buy things then we will have an economy.
the anarchists say that it`s high time the whole game stops and we return to a "simpler" way of life, but i disagree.
we do seem somehow happier and less agressive when we have new things on a steady basis.
the human brain washes it`s self with endorphins when it shops.
endorphins are chemicals that emulate morphine.
endorphine production is known as the natural high......
like exercise or sex or hunting or the first breath of mountain air as you climb
but i realised that the greatest gift a father can recieve on a day specifically named in his honour is to be with his children.
and today i have that.
