I was just listening to a cool song, “Jack gets up” by Leo Kottke. It has a line in it,
If you look in the mirror,
it’s your fathers face,
and the thin grin, and the thin grin…
I’m at the age where I’m starting to see my fathers face in the mirror. But this made me think, why my father? Why not my mother? Do I just have stronger memories of my father from this age? Do boys instinctively compare themselves to their father, and girls to their mother?
What about you? Whose face do you see?
