what is the word for . . .

... "Paternal" is the name for the way a father feels towards his son
"Maternal": a mother

what is the way a child feels towards his father?

i asked a massage client i was working on a few days ago
a Leo
nice thick grey chest hair
nice chest
a joy to touch in so many ways
and i asked him
whatever it was
i was feeling it towards him

he paused only a moment and said


which hit me at an odd angle
and i collapsed onto him and just lay there for a while


-- i've never felt loved by my father.
but as i worked on this client
i felt some of the healing that i need
and said to him, as we talked about sexual types,
"it's clear to me now that i do have this daddy type for a reason
-- i'm trying to heal my childhood.
i cannot stop having a type until i'm finished
and then i hope to be able to love everyone beyond my own needs..."

i asked a few other people
stopping with Nayland, the great encyclopedia

"Filial" of course

oh yes
are filial duties
i'm familiar with that
but only begrudgingly

love has to go both ways

i certainly hope it does some day.
