Once upon a time I was suicidal. Many years ago.

Feelings are not things I like to talk about, unless abstractly. This was a thing I could not tell my parents when I was feeling it. But when I finally could speak, it was my father that I told.

My father is my rock. He is not a particularly emotional rock, but I think that is why I like him and love him so much. Neither am I.
