  2. Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars.  You have to let go at some point
    in order to move forward.

  4. The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing
    at the tempting moment.

    Chapter 2 Honor Thy Father

    Gary, I just read Honor Thy Father, and I teared up. Again we have the same experience with our fathers. My father loved to scare the living daylights out of me when I was way younger. I was oh about 6 or 7 years old when he did something that I still can remember. One day he and I were on a father/son activity, He rode his bike and upfront was a child seat, we were at the harbor and he leaned his front tire over the edge of the quay, and dipped the tire deeper. So I was sitting in the child seat and he asked; '' Do you want me to throw you with the bike in the water?'' I was so scared, I wet my pants while clinging to the handlebars of my child seat; he slowly edged the front tire deeper and I started to cry. He did more things but this one is etched in my memory. A few months later my mom divorced him. I was so scared when I was alone with him because he found always new ways to scare me or to hurt me. I am sorry you, your brothers and Mom had to endure that. You are right if I would have children I would never treat them the way my Dad did. I would love them, encourage them and be there for them. As always, your writings touch me.

    I love the story, the beginning of a friendship and maybe even more. Starboardtack is right, it is a gentle beautiful story.

    Chapter 30 Frank's Red Hot

    I had a bad morning, I heard that I may have a heart problem, and sometimes I tend to overthink things. I feel a tad better now that I had some time to digest the news. Reading this excellent contemplation made me smile and it cheered me up. Thank you, Gary.

    Chapter 13 Endurance

    Oh man, I so can relate to this. After my dad died, a few years later my mom remarried she felt I needed a dad, he was a drunk, stole money out of her wallet, had several girlfriends and when he was drunk he would beat my Mom up. I was at that time 7 or 8 years old. Before he would beat her up, he would dislocate her left shoulder. Mom would fight back like a tigress, but you can't do much with only one arm. Then one night, she was pregnant, he kicked her in her belly and she had a miscarriage. As soon as my mother was out of the hospital she filed for a divorce. I will never ever forgive him for what he did to my mom. He killed my brother or sister. Please forgive me for sharing my story. While reading what you wrote it all came back. I am so sorry Gary, that your Dad did that to you.

    Chapter 27 Ringside

    Love storms provided no one got hurt. A few years ago the weather forecast said that a storm was brewing in old Netherlands, a matter of fact they issued a code orange. I had to go somewhere on my bike and I had a tailwind, man, it felt like flying. Fun and exciting. I really like Ringside, in my mind, I can hear the storm howling and see branches snap off the trees. Brava!
