My Dad is in town now til the first week of October. It been nice having him here. After my mom died and my step-mom and he got divorced we were seperated by time and circumstance. I found him a little over 2 years ago last February, it had been 26 years since we saw each other. I was 11/12 the last time. It’s amazing how well we get along and how much of him I see in myself. It’s been a really healing journey the past couple of years, filling in the hole that my Mom’s death caused and the subsequent removal of all my biological relatives. I took him down to the Market and have been sharing my passion for all things Seattle, the food, the people the weather. He lives in Alabama these days so it’s really cool to see how excited he gets about some of the stuff up here. He’s really just a 63 year old hippy.
