For My Dad
My dad passed away after a very short and hard battle with cancer. We have spent the last weeks looking after him around the clock and I am grateful that he was surrounded by his family when he went.
One of the last things he said to me, when I showed him a few of the things I'd recently made, was "you should do something with that - open up a little shop". I'd never before shown him anything I'd made, but he admired every little piece. I am so glad to have gotten his blessing to do something a little less conventional with my life. His opinion meant so much to be and I'm sure part of me will always seek his approval. But for now I will just need to spend some time thinking of my dad all at sea.
