Arthur...

Yesterday I visited my dad. It had been 8 years since the last time I saw him. It was a really pleasant visit, all things considered. His personality and mannerisms were just as I remembered. He hasn't really changed much. Physically though... oh I don't think I was prepared for him to be an old guy. The once thin and extremely active person I knew has been replaced by a little belly pudge, slouched shoulders, and arthritic knees that gave him trouble getting in and out of my mom's car. He maintained good conversation though. Asked about my life and shared details about his. He told my mother that times like this, when he could see his children, make his entire life worth living.

Last night the boy asked how my visit with my father went. My response was to sob on the phone for an hour.
