Example text

Ground .............................................................. T rips home have delayed my finishing the Mint’s annual report, so I needed to be in the office over the weekend. Saturday morning traffic into the District was like Iowa traffic, only me on the road with a car occasionally in the distance. I don’t spend many Saturdays at work, but I remember Dad worked every Saturday. All week I’ve been recalling fragmented things Dad said about his life before I was born or when I was a few years old, stories like buying a pack of hotdogs with a dollar he found in the street during the Depression or starting college after the war, going house-to-house for an attic or out-building to live in.

The paperwork is in the safe deposit box at the bank. It was the answer I needed to prove my father was back. “ Welcome back, Dad. ” “It’s mid-February, Dad. ” For a second time he didn’t react to what I’d said about his absence. ” I laughed again. I had no doubt this was my father. Of all things at that moment, I most wanted to know if Dad remembered being an addled replica of himself. I wanted to know if he remembered Mother coping with him and me trying to speak sensibly to him and whether he sensed our dwindling hope that he’d return.

Of . Our . . Discontent .................................................... I t’s the end of February, and on this trip back I see winter has arrived in Iowa, although the snow is light by Iowa standards and the cold is not as bad as I remember from growing up here. They’ve transferred Dad by ambulance to the hospital in town, so winter, even if it reverts to form, won’t keep Mother from being with him. I dislike few things as much as winter, and I accept this less worse weather only grudgingly and only for her sake.
