Just holding my breath.

Father is still in the hospital. Surgery on Friday AM.

On last Sunday, by myself in the midst of Lake Huron, I nodded of to sleep. Now this is in a sailboat under weigh. Supposedly manned full time by a pilot and observer. Me. But sitting there in the cockpit reading my paperback, I just winked out sitting up. I only slept for one minute or three or four. I don't think it could have been longer. But what awakened me was my Father standing in front of me saying, "We need to talk." I popped awake. The dream had been so clear, so real that I noted the time on the GPS, 4:37 PM.

We talked today when no one else was in the room.

So much of my life has not been terribly lucky. But today the dice fell undeniably in my favor. We got to talk.
