  • I wish I could remember the last Father's Day with my dad, any little thing he did or said – but the events that followed it have swallowed the memory. | Instead, I must imagine it as a historian puzzles over the end days of a doomed village, busy believing that sandbags, vaccines, prayers could somehow prevent a cataclysm. I picture myself on that day decades ago, just past my teens, outmatched and unaware, sure that if I just believed it, I could keep him from hurtling away.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The day before, I must have shopped in a too-bright department store for a tie dad would never wear, or a gadget that would remain in its box. I would have purchased it knowing that a wrapped-up token could not fulfill my desperate need to thank him, to apologize for being a brat, to tell him I loved him, to save him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A few weeks later dad would be rushed to a life-saving lung transplant, only to be denied the surgery for a host of sad reasons. Soon, I would select a polished rock to mark his 44 years of existence, reducing to ash a giant who couldn't possibly be dead.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now a woman of 50, I hold onto his vanished shirttail with a grip so tight, for so long, my fingers have gone numb. I want him to tell me what to do. I want him to write a letter to me in all caps full of his famous misspellings and all the answers. I want him to be, forever. And this is the thing about becoming fatherless, no matter our age: We walk on our own because our dads taught us how. But some days, we'd rather be carried.

  • А чудесные колечки с моими эмалями от @tatosha.art я ещё и не показывала. Кстати, когда была в Москве купила ворох новых эмалей, в том числе интересного золотистого цвета и серого под Серебро.
.
Страдаю неимоверно от того, что мастерская закрыта до осени. Потому как в старой мастерской теперь красивая дверь, обои и живёт ребёнок 😄. А мне предстоит обжить 23 кв.м. собственного пространства для творчества. Пугают золотые обои в цветочек, которые я при первой возможности отдеру и выкрашу все в серый бетон. Зато расставлю на полочках многочисленные баночки с эмалью, альбомы по искусству. Повешу гирлянду и в перерывах буду сидеть на диванчике с любимой керамической чашкой чая. Чтоб не помечтать? Оно же не вредно😁. И пусть сразу все будет не так, но когда-нибудь обязательно.
