finally getting around to it...

sunday was perfect.
hanging out with dad.
he sits back on his mattress on the floor, back against the wall.
a true vision of the eternal bachelor.
"you could marry any one of those cowgirls."
"you think so?"
"they're crazy about you."
he blushes. i know he has his reasons why he has stayed single for the last 16 years. 
he doesn't want to be a daddy to someone else's kids. he's already raised his.
she lived too far.
she had too take care of her elderly mother.
she was a born-again christian.
she just didn't have to say.
but when all is said and done, i think he just enjoys his freedom more than any woman he's ever met.
watching him on the dance floor, i am slightly comforted. these are his companions. 
and as much as i would like to see him with a partner, i like more to see him dancing on fire.
unbridled, unchained, uncaged...
it took him his whole life to get to this place and it is quite a joy to see him enjoying it as much as he does.
keep on dancing.
