Maturity

From Ad:

Happy 63rd birthday! Hey dad, ya old fart, I hope all is well. I am in Agra right now. I am planning on seeing the Taj Mahal in a few hours. It's pretty exciting, though I am more excited about going into the Himalayas tomrrow. A few days ago I was in Rishikesh which is in the foothills of the Himalayas. It was beautiful; I was white water rafting down the Ganga. I got out a few times to swim, the Ganga supposedly cleanses all sins, so I am officially pure, thanks to my rafting adventure. I read your blog the other day, where you talked about searching for maturity vs. enlightenment, and I've been thinking a lot about it. I think one of the reasons I am who I am is because I had such mature(enlightened?) parents. I always believed that your maturity and wisdom came from your age, but I don't think that is the case. Maturity is strived for and earned, not gained by default. So here is to your maturity!

Geez, Happy Father's Day early, Gunnar! I only hope my own chickens come home to roost in such a way. Good on you and yours.
