Duncan Jones has a meaningful relationship with his dad, David Bowie.  When asked how his father was involved in his life, he said, “My experience with my dad was always just that he was Dad, and he was terrific at it.”
 
That in and of itself is the whole meaning behind fatherhood, motherhood, brother, sister or friend-hood.  It’s about cherishing the role you’ve been given in life.  Whether it is one in family, friendship, trusted colleague, spiritual leader or neighbor, it is a precious job.  My hope is that we can treat it with the immense respect it deserves and, indeed, be terrific at it.

Duncan Jones is an English film director.  He is best known for his film debut, Moon, which premiered in April of 2009.  He is currently working on a follow-up movie to Moon, with plans for a third in the series.  David Bowie is an English musician and actor, a major figure for the past forty years, known for his innovation and influence.
