Well, it’s that time of year again, the first of October, a month that creates bittersweet memories for me, one of which comes at the end of the month when I like to commemorate my late mentors passing, which will be 12 years this year.
To start off the somber month, I’d like to share my recent poem that I wrote in my mentors character, Charley. I like to think of it as me carrying on his memory, a small way (but not the only) I can do to honor him and give others the hope he gave me. I wrote this poem because of videos his son has been doing to talk about depression and his hero growing up…
But more on that later this month…here’s the poem in question:
-in memory of the Late Larry Berk, and for his family and son, Jonah, who inspired this piece-
Outside studio window,
On us all,
Good or bad.
One we learn
Others need time
In all of life itself.
We all face
In long historic
Let’s help each other and show each other how to always…
