Have had several dreams of my father. Always in his early thirties–half my present age. Grew up hearing the stories, in bits and pieces of World War Two soldiers: Dad, neighbors, friends, family.
They are almost entirely gone — in fact I don’t think one who was close to me remains. I look forward to seeing them again, laughing with them, thanking them, but not in dreams. Why I wrote the love stories celebrating them in the war years 1941 –1945:
The Last Valentine, The Lighthouse Keeper, Ticket Home,
and, “When the Last Leaf Falls” (unpublished)
Like a soliloquy to the lost but not forgotten, tender music like this pays tribute to these old-young men who fought so valiantly for their loved ones. From “The Pacific.”
