Nothing I Can Do About it Now

Casting About

Filed under: Uncategorized — dregina @ 2:51 pm

A year ago this week, my father’s life was ending.  

Some experiences are just unimaginable until they come to pass. The death of a parent certainly qualifies.

I’ve been pawing through old email, thinking I would publish Fred emails all week as a tribute. Also to spare you my hamfisted attempts to set down in writing what’s in my heart, which is mauldin.

But Fred wasn’t your typical guy, and our emails back and forth rely on our lifetime’s experience with each other. They are full of the cynicism and misanthropy he used to cope with the heartbreaks he experienced in his life, and I’ve realized I don’t want to set them out here, in bright light, where only the people who knew him could understand.

So. I am casting about. Maybe some pictures later this week? Maybe some words? I appreciate y’all bearing with me.

  1. I understand oh so well having lost my mother last year. And I totally get how words of someone we knew with our hearts cannot so easily be understood or fully appreciated by those who never knew them at all. Still…I’m sure whatever you choose to tell us will be a tribute since it’s from your heart. I join you in your remembrance of a loved one and look forward to whatever you choose to share. (-;
