First let me say I'm so sorry for your loss. Flawed or not, he was your dad. I do understand where you're coming from. Your brief description of the relationship between you and him mirrors the one I had with my mother.

Mom died in 2007 after a long hard fought battle with ovarian cancer. She died before I could get to her side and with a lot of things left unsaid and undone. I was much like you. I handled the emotions by pouring words out of my soul onto the computer screen - and not necessarily about my mother or death or any of that. I wrote one of my funniest short stories during that time period.

Personally, I think for writers this is a natural reaction. I have a friend who is an artist who seldom left her studio after her brother was killed in Iraq. And it's a much safer outlet than many others we could have chosen.

Again, I'm sorry for your loss and your family will be in my heart and meditations.

Glenda
