Many more topics arose during Andrew's and my conversation at KFC. He talked about his careers in business and I shared my therapeutic music work and writing adventures. We were not one-sided at all. In between the deep realizations we were also different people. He told me about his late wife's children coming to visit him, that they were good to him, appreciated how tenderly he treated their mother.
And the very day I called him about writing his story, they had all been together and sprinkled her ashes in some of the local places she loved: Blue Ridge Parkway overlooks, Bass Pond at Biltmore Estate, Western Carolina Nature Center, The NC Arboretum and UNCA Botanical Gardens. This was a holy day for them.
Wouldn't you know, I'd call on that day, of all days.
