Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

Father's Day

The Old Man died young
One year older than I am
A long time ago.

Seeing the photo of your dad (and reading your haiku) made me realize that old Omer would have been 90 years old this year. He died at 77, not knowing who I was or anyone else. Not the way I want to "go" (no matter what my age at the end). The Old Toad would like to know who that old Gunnar is that he's writing to on this blog.
