“We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come.”

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness Of Being

A while ago, I decided to try to collect paternal experiences and collate them on a website. I’m doing it because everyone’s relationship to their dad is always worth hearing about, whether they’re very close, have never met them, are sworn enemies or are now sadly departed. You always learn something.

I’m always on the hunt for fresh contributions so feel free to contact me with your own. Could be 50 words, could be 500 words. I’ll consider poems, photos with a caption, a nice line drawing. Anything that moves all of our minds on a notch. Further reading about the motivation for the site can be found here:

Send submissions directly to me if we know each other, or here if we don’t.
