Michael on Father’s Day…

Originally uploaded by rapnyc.

This was the most extraordinary moment for me. Ever. We went out to lower Manhattan for Father’s Day, originally to head to the swimming pool, but we found that the pools would not be open till the end of June. We went to Seward Park instead, which had sprinklers running full blast, and we all got wet. Michael was in my arms when all of a sudden he just turned into me, wrapped his arms around my neck and just stayed there. We must have stayed like that for five minutes, and the whole time, the thought kept running through my mind: this is my son. Nice Father’s Day…
