Song of the Week: "Forever Young"

Because yes, I am binge-watching Parenthood on Netflix. Bob Dylan, 1974. (A little pitch-shifted because of YouTube nonsense.)

I've actually watched this series since the outset, week at a time. Mostly, I like it.

I'm really enjoying it, but the whole thing is bringing up a lot of feelings I have about wanting to be a father, feelings I admit I mostly suppress for a variety of feelings. Father's Day is next week and I'm starting to look at it the way single people stereotypically look at Valentine's.

Do you know what I have never understood? This near-deification of motherhood as a rite of passage. My sense is whatever you're feeling - and I didn't have my daughter until I was 51, so I DO have a sense of that - it's probably worse for childless women who listen to that chatter.

Well, good luck with that.

BTW, I wish Blogger would let one edit one's comments. You wrote: "feelings I admit I mostly suppress for a variety of feelings," when, of course, you meant "reasons" at the end. I've actually corrected typos in my comments - it's WordPress - and for people I like (and NOT corrected people who are jerks.)
