As Far Away As Yesterday

 

For Luc the greyhound bus could have been the Apollo, and landing in an empty cavernous terminal at 3 a.m. in Dallas, was like landing on the moon. It is 1968, discharged from the Nam quagmire, he is alone, broke, and a long way from nowhere.

 

On an elusive mission to find his passion, the journey across Texas from where the sun rises to where it sets, is a roller coast ride with twists, turns and crossovers on an unpredictable track. He entered a world where everything he believes in has an alternative reality. Every time he reaches the top of the incline the devil of addiction takes over until he hits the bottom of the drop, but never without one foot on the ground.

 

In as far away as yesterday, fiction collides with the inevitability of life on the road, to where somewhere is never enough.

"Sometimes life takes you on a pendulum’s swing, and when you end up on the other side of yesterday you gotta go with the flow, or it’s going to swing back real fast and leave you hanging.".

FATHER HUNTING

Father Hunting is a journey in poetic narrative, of searching for a father, who left a four year old standing on the platform of a train station, never to return, until one day several decades later they met in a cold, northern city. In that moment all his questions over the years were answered: old rags and brittle bone/had been where he had been/and covered his tracks well/his father let his bones die/ let his legs ground to sand/and he had been denied/the final moments of the hunt.
