I’m not sure I can think of any father-daughter relationships in books or movies which really remind me of me and my dad. I have only vague memories of Ramona and Her Father, but I super-identified with Ramona in general and I seem to recall that she and her father had somewhat similar personalities? So that’s one possible model.

But I’m not sure I’ve seen a lot of fathers, in pop culture or great art or whatever, who remind me of my dad. I’ve watched him very quietly do good, difficult things for a long time, which has been helpful for me since I’m such a diva! I’ve also learned–and this has been reinforced by watching him with his grandchildren–how lucky I was to have someone who knew how to be totally supportive without being either coddling or kind of Tiger Dad.

I know you read my blog, Dad, so this is the other part of your present, along with the sorbet!

Love, L.
