Stay with me. There is a connection: a story about the way a defective chain worked to my advantage.
A little piece of me that not many people know is that I had a brief stint as a radio DJ at my college radio station – not the cool station. KXLU was the cool station – an alternative rock station that played cutting edge music, new on the scene.
July 13th, 2007 is the anniversary of my dad’s death. It was a Friday – Friday the 13th – a kind of retribution that would have made him laugh as he admits to doing his part in karma. He found humor in the way things settled into their place. Had he lived through that, or was able to talk about his death, he would have liked to hear that he died on a day known for bad luck and a teen horror movie franchise.
A third would be for the sake of the rhythm of threes, but I have to say it anyway.
A birth after a death.
