TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Dear dads and beyond,

What a strange trip parenting is. Not that I’m a huge fan of Hallmark holidays, but Fathers Day? I’ll take it.

Why not—being a dad is likely the coolest and craziest thing I’ve ever done. Fatherhood sure ain’t easy, but there is rarely not a day when at least one of my kids leads me to moments of bliss or revelation, but don’t get me wrong—being a parent can often times be a frustrating pain in the ass.

And I dare say, my 2 are like wild flowers. It’s not at all easy growing indoors—so maybe on Sunday the 21-year-old will text me from her European travels and our little dude will be happy with what I make him for breakfast.

For me, one thing about parenthood is that I never stop being dad, so this Idelic Hour is a playlist of songs about “footwork.” I know Father’s Day is a very predictable muse for this week, but I stumbled on a cool Odetta cover of Dylan’s “Walking Down The Line” and yep—that’s what I’m doing this weekend. (And playing baseball, fishing with the guys, going Sunday for dim sum, and even bought myself a fancy chocolate bar!)

Lord, I’m walkin’ down the line / Walkin’ down the line / An’ I’m walkin’ down the line / My feet’ll be a-flyin’ / To tell about my troubled mind…

Dads, keep those feet moving and enjoy yourselves!
