♫ A smile is such a funny thing it wrinkles up your face;
And when it’s gone you’ll never find its secret hiding place. ♫
That special sage is my father, who, 42 years later continues to be one of the wisest persons I have ever known. What a gift it is to have a sage for a father. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, DAD!
And while I am tempted to further elaboration, I will conclude here with the words of that first sage to grace my path; that special sage known as my father:
"All that you say need be true.
However, you need not say ALL that is true."
