BLURB

Mother and father had always made their love for me shine brightest in the dark. A guiding light and ever-illuminating beacon on which I could rely. They were simple and kind. Honest with their feelings. If my father was Handel, I was Bohuslav Martinů. My father’s smile and laughter punctuated every question. “How did you manage to get so dirty, princess?” He’d take time after his strenuous work day to spin me around and wash the infant pressures of youth off of my face well before tending to himself. His world was full of consistencies. My world with him was safe. Perhaps that's why I yearned to seek out the peculiarities in each day. I could always count on his warmth and patience. He was behind every step I took, supporting me at all times. “Why on earth, princess?…” my mother would start, my father soon smiling to console both of us. “Why not?”, I’d giggle in return as he wiped the dirt from my face. [Mychaelangelo Norkus]
