A Few Things: A Father's Day Tribute

Yes, My Dad! Photo Credit: Seth Hackett
Father's Day is tomorrow. Though my dad and I are currently estranged, things have recently began to heal a bit, and even look like there may be room for change in the relationship. For that I am grateful. We just aren't there...yet. 

Recently I have begun writing more about him. It is cathartic. In honor of my dad, and all of you dads out there, I want to say Happy Father's Day and share a (hokey) poem. 


(I am a writer, not a poet...the two are not always the same thing!)
