On Father’s Day

My parents, circa 1949

My parents, circa 1949

On this Father’s Day, thought I’d share this essay I wrote about my parents for the wonderful literary journal Referential Magazine. (My essay came out in December 2013; hope you’ll explore the current edition of the magazine too.)

People rightfully decry the commercialization of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. But the holidays do give us an opportunity to stop and reflect on our parents and, for those of us whose parents have passed on, the topic of my essay: “What Did I Have.”
