A new podcast on heirlooms is up


This is my father's pocketknife I found in his car after he died. It reminded me of being 12 years old when he gave me his old pocketknife back then, and the meaning of the memory it holds.

It's easy to know how long as my son was born the following year after his death. Parenthood and grief-hood have both grown me so much, side by side.

It included deciding on an urn. My face became parched and dry.
