it was ok
Read in July, 2010

This was a struggle, akin to Kim. It must have been too deep for me, cause I don't understand the message. Here's the last line, ..."I will head south once again with Rosario seated cautiously in the cockpit, and lift my hands to the heavens, and give thanks for all the unspeakable sorrows of this life." I think it's a rumination on the death of his hero brother years before the slow death of his father. Why the thanks for the sorrows? Luckily I can ask Jan about this, as the author is her brother, and maybe I'll report back.
