Last week, my father passed away after a short stay in the hospital and a few days back home. He was 93.
It was the first time in his life that he was seriously ill.
He was an extremely private and eccentric man. Confronting the reality that he was dying was not easy for him. It was extremely difficult for all who were there for him. He was furious.

My father was a very lucky man. He reached every goal he wanted to achieve. He lived according to his own terms. Except for his last month, he was completely independent.

I do not understand what it was like to be my father, yet many of my attitudes are like his. He loved cats. I love cats. He loved Nature. I love Nature. He was diligent. I am diligent. He respected the Arts. I am an artist. He loved animation. I love animation. He loved gourmet cooking. I love gourmet cooking. He loved Science Fiction. So do I -- but I don't devour it like he did. And it goes on...

Sadly, my father will never see my current project finished. He asked about it every week. Before the end of 2013, I expect to know how it will be received. I would have liked to share that with him.
