0280 - CWG - Father and Son

Description:

#Audio. #FlashFic A father and son have a long-overdue conversation.

Excerpt:

“Why didn’t you ever play music at home? Katie would have loved your music. You know she’s at Julliard now? And Mom… she kept that piano dusted and tuned for you, not for us. Why did you hide that part of you? Why didn’t you come to our recitals? What closed you off from this thing that you loved?”

“Life, I guess.”

“Ironic.”
