Great Stuff: Karl Saliter on Fathers and Sons

Karl Saliter is many things, including sculptor and performing artist. When I read this piece of his, I had to leave the computer three times to fight back tears. The tears won and I lost.

The thin red line of “good writing” claims the space between expressing emotion and events and undermining the expression at the same time. The older I get the more appreciative I am of writing that dares confess, simply, what it was like (in this time) to be a human being.
