When I turn to look, the flowers had all fallen away
It has been more than a year since my father passed away, and my grief has shifted to a new realm. Much to my surprise, a piece that I thought I would never revisit was actually calling for me to give it the attention it deserves.
The initial shock has passed; the briefest wash of understanding keeps coming and going.
"There is probably no more terrible instant of enlightenment than the one in which you discover your father is a man - with human flesh. "
- Frank Herbert, Dune
