Sample text

When my dad reports to his superiors over the two-way radio, he is still peering through his binoculars. 舠Eastern sector clear,舡 he says. Just then, the quivering antennae of a giant grasshopper appear behind him. 舡 Then a bloodcurdling scream. 舡 Dad was a goner. Great stuff. If my dad was featured in a show or movie on TV, neighbors would drop by the next day to report how they felt about his work. Š. 舡 That was my first brush with celebrity. And critics. There was always a but. Everyone felt entitled to voice his or her opinion.

A sense that I was part of something greater than myself. Son I especially loved acting for my dad. He was a big man in my eyes舒barrel-chested with striking black hair that gave way to distinguished salt and pepper before he turned forty. He always seemed so tall to me, but as he aged, I realized that he was just shy of five feet nine at his high-water mark. My dad wanted to be a star. No doubt. No compromise. Nothing else would do. He wanted the home run. But there were bills to pay. When he wasn舗t working as an actor, my dad wrote scripts and did some directing and dabbled in businesses.

I wouldn舗t see him again for a decade. 舡 I think they believed it. Even I started to believe it. For a while my dad had been a ghost. And then he was gone. We were never told why. In fact, we were never told anything. That舗s just what happened. Move on. For the longest time I thought my sister, Amy, who was too young to understand what was happening, was luckier for sliding through that period relatively unscathed. But now I realize that she missed all the happiness and stability of the time before things fell apart舒the Christmas lights, the outings, and the games we舗d play as a family.
