Remembering Father's Day
My mother and father, 1977. My parents met in Toronto at the UofT, and got married and had their honeymoon in this city. I never met my father because he died of cancer one month before I was born. He died in the same hospital where I would be born. I only began to know him through his record collection and his writings. He was a great fan of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. When he was a teenager, he wrote these epic-scale novels about the characters he knew in Aurora, Ontario. Dad, I have no idea if there's an afterlife, but in the meantime I'm going to continue talking to you and keeping you posted.
