new year…

the black hand-by jay herron

This is not a really good day for me-the memory of the event that changed my life came in the early morning hours of new years eve…1970.
Because of the recent death of my father my emotions are shaken…I wanted to validate myself with my father….to be able to tell him I had not failed the Navy,they failed me. Its all lost now.
So you have to forgive me for being so brief today-no story behind anything today…it happened on this date and stayed with me-no its even deeper,the pain.

    Hi Jay, lots of thoughts & prayers your way. A heartbreak like losing your father will always make old wounds reopen even more than usual, and having so many things culminate at once is so much tougher. If your dad thought that you failed the Navy, then I believe he knows now that it wasn’t the case.

    Blessings to you and your loved ones in 2008.

    Beautiful art.
