Dad, you’ve been gone almost thirty years. There have been a few changes in my life since we last spoke. Wish i had time to write a more thoughtful, reflective post today…but I don’t have the time or energy after, well, being a Dad all day. Just took my own kids to the beach, and every time I do I think about Mexico or Oregon or even the quick trips we made together to trout fish in the California mountains. I make it a point to show my kids as much of the world as time and money permit, mostly because i think they will remember after I am gone.
Anyway, its a shame we can’t sit and have a conversation right now. I can honestly tell you that after 52 years, i still think you are the smartest person I’ve ever known. You were also terribly flawed as a person, and truth be told, one of those is also true of me.
So, just a note to let you know I am thinking about you. Say hey to Mom. You guys do get the internet up there right? I’m thinkin its probably fast as hell too. Ha.
