  1. Matt, I reflected for some time on your Dad and his legacy and loss that you shared. I don’t think your success in any way diminishes his life or abilities. I see your connection to writing, language and storytelling with him as a circle connecting you back to him and bringing not only you, but him “voice” and “place” in the world. If your son writes, or someone else that you touch by your gift (the many who you empower to have voices) and we find an audience then you live in us in the same way. The seed of father’s greatness in language and stories lives in you loudly. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss and continue to send peace, courage, light to you and your family.
