KING of CUPS – Happy Birthday Dad!

KingofCups-YoshitaCard by Yoshitaka Amano Mangaka

Today is my dad’s birthday.  I originally pulled the Emperor for today, but decided to pull something that more closely matched my dad as I knew him.  He wasn’t the stern disciplinary ruler like the Emperor, he was more like the feeling, fair, big hearted King of Cups.

Dad would have been 80 today.  I’ve never written a song celebrating my dad’s life.  But if I did, it would be all about how caring and sensitive he was.  Sensitive as in intuitive and empathic.

I have, however, written a song about my relationship with a lover, a daddy figure in my life, and how that relationship had a lot to do with healing and growing my relationship with my family, especially with my dad’s spirit.  It’s ultimately about my own Fool’s Journey (on the more foolish spectrum).

Song: Father’s Day
