I just got back from a trip to Indianapolis, where my dad had a heart procedure. (He refuses to classify it as surgery, even though I'm pretty sure that's totally what it was.) He is doing well, and I want to thank everyone for their warm words and thoughts. My family and I are so lucky to be surrounded by such an amazing support group.
A few years back, my dad became obsessed with the Chinese symbol for "forever." (He loved the meaning, and he thought it kind of resembled the letter K, for Ken.) In a Prince-like fashion, he signs it on everything he sends to me. Anyway, this song lyric made me think of him. This project kept me busy while he was in surgery, much to my mother's chagrin—apparently I'm not good company while I'm messing around on the computer.
