My Dad kept several old coffee cans filled with bent nails around the garage, and as many baby food jars filled with screws and nuts and bolts and the occasional bits of wire. Any number of minor (or major, god help us) repairs might find him upending the contents of one of these vessels onto the floor to find the right screw or unbend the nail he needed. When I was a teenager and had developed a passion for reading he built me a bookcase from scraps and unbent nails. I’ve long since stopped keeping the books I read, I pass them on to their next reader, but I’ve kept that bookcase and today I decided to repurpose it into a record case. It just needed some resizing, and I followed techniques that would make any real carpenter cry, measuring with an old record sleeve and sawing with my Dad’s ancient saw, and eventually I was ready to assemble my new case. I felt him then, looking on as I carefully unbent the same old unbent nails with a hammer on the sidewalk, turning them until they were more or less straight, and carefully driving them home. I’m 51 years old, how long has it been? My mind doesn’t work that way. It was yesterday when I saw him last, leaning on a shovel, burning leaves in the soybean field, listening while I tried to play the guitar. I miss him, his rough hands filled with bent nails and a hammer, saying “straighten these for me, will ya son?”

It feels like I’ve been away for most of the winter, it’s already getting warmer and I never even had time to sharpen my skates. I just got home this week from six weeks in Europe, running with a guitar case to catch trains and walking in drizzling rain and slush from train stations to the shows while Rick Steve’s voice droned along in my head for some reason, providing a sarcastic narration about the sights that I didn’t have time to see or how to save money on a gourmet meal that I couldn’t afford even with the discount. It was a great and tiring tour, I was happy to get to see a lot of old friends, although I never got enough time to really catch up with any one of them, and I even made a few new ones, which is hard when you’re on the run. When I got home to Duluth I learned that Rueben had landed the starring role in a local production of The Wizard of Oz. I was not even over my jet lag when I got to sit in the theatre and watch my beloved little dog bring new insights into the role of Toto and I thought to myself ‘this play isn’t about little girls or wizards or home or scarecrows or any of that, it’s the adventure movie of a dog, struggling against the tyranny of mean neighbors’. Rueben took a triumphant bow and I drove her home, and this morning we had breakfast and made plans to take an epic walk this afternoon, rain or snow, and savor another day. After that, the tour continues.
