The walk yesterday afternoon was the last thing anyone could have seen coming.
Maybe two miles and two hours later they had finished the most important part.
Getting to, “Where do we go from here?”.
What looked like a simple father and son walk was actually a monumental conversation.
And so it goes.
They decided to give the next conversation a four-day deadline to happen – by New Year’s Eve.
The conversation yesterday had no deadline. But it did rely on a 14-year old’s courage to start an adult conversation. He didn’t initiate it, circumstances did.
