I'm rereading Marcus Aurelius's meditations. He's one of history's greatest leaders. I'll be sharing some snippets with you if you don't mind.
The first one is where he praises his father (copied below). One of my heros is my father, your Dadu. He's an amazing character. Why do you think I love him? Because of his dedication to duty towards work and family. He is the epitome of dedication. Plus great humour. And he's ferociously intelligent. He had a very difficult life son but despite all those, he managed to raise two children and have a good life.
And I was reminded of your grandfather when I read Marcus praising his father. And he's so happy to correspond with you, you really bring him so much joy Kannu. Thank you for loving and giving him time despite your busy schedule.
