It was my wife, Siri, who turned the proposition on its head. That night, when I told
her about NPR's curious offer, she immediately came up with a proposal that
reversed the direction of my thoughts. In a matter of thirty seconds, no had
become yes. You don't have to write the stories yourself, she said. Get people to
sit down and write their own stories. They could send them in to you, and then
you could read the best ones on the radio. If enough people wrote in, it could turn
into ...

Unlike me, my father does not now feel betrayed, he has no sense of having
wasted years of his life, no indignation. There is no disillusion for my father. When
I gave him the sixteen volumes of P.B.'s posthumously published Notebooks to
read, I thought that some of the obvious nonsense P.B. writes there would jolt him
awake, would shake some of his reverence for P.B. I was wrong. “I described P.B.
to you as a mystic,” he told me when he finished, “but I made a mistake. In fact, he

The two of us were going to Mass, as usual. My father never went; faith was my
mother's domain, a foreign country to him. Inside the church, I followed my mother
to our pew and stood next to her and listened as FatherJacquinot spoke words
that were like a door opening to a place I loved though I did not completely
understand. “In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti,” he said, and I made the
sign of the cross and tried to keep my thoughts on the Father and the Son. But
over and ...

My mother's spring decor hung on the old front door, beckoning guests welcome.
All of the familiar spring fragrances waft through my senses. This was by far, my
most favorite time of the year to go visit the family. I hurried through the garage to
see my Mother and, for an instant, thought that my Dad would be asleep in his
chair and that I should tread lightly. Oh, how the mind can play tricks on you. I
wanted it to be true, but in that same split second, I knew that the chair would be
empty ...

I can feel my fists ball up at my sides. The thought of my father and Bruce
conspiring against me is making my insides boil with rage. The flames are
lashing at the walls of my chest now, devouring my heart and lungs, the smoke
stinging my throat. I look around for something to hit, something to throw,
something to demonstrate just how livid I really am. My eyes land on a dozen
gold-plated plaques lining the office wall. Some kind of stupid lawyer-of-the-year
awards, no doubt. I take one ...
