FIRESIDE

education is not the filling of a pail
but the lighting of a fire

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind fireside

I keep having these dreams
that I'm burning

it is said, that a picture is worth a thousand words
so ya, I'm doing pictures now too
an attempt to realize it
as close as I can get it

yes, it was a dream I had
our house was burning down back when
mom and dad were still together, struggling
on a hot summer night in Woodstock Ontario
and mom came in to rescue us
charred and burnt
weeks in the hospital 
she succeeded
i'm alive 50 yrs 
later

being loaded into the ambulance
I just remember dad standing there at a distance
that smug look on his face on the edge of the street
standing beside a big red firetruck
smoking a du Maurier

I woke up and started this one
ending 2 days later - the story fleshed out
in a loose translation

same feeling tho
same shiver


for troy
my knight in shining armour
