In Passing


I wrote this for my father, who passed away earlier this year.

Believe it or not, I’ve always had trouble expressing myself. I tend to hide who I am behind characters, and comments, and descriptions.

But with this story, I wanted to share an honest piece of my heart. Or, I suppose, the part of it that left when my father did.

Happiness, sadness, grief, and hope – it was strange to feel them all at the same time; and not unlike stumbling across a fifth season.
