This morning, the Globe and Mail published my article My son’s need for speed in Facts and Arguments. It is a little tale of my coming to terms with Wolf’s passion for racing. I was surprised, however, with my reaction to the graphic that was commissioned for my essay. It elicits a far greater amount of angst than I believe that I feel or even portrayed in the piece. I glad to have the essay published, but couldn’t the art be less, I don’t know, tortured? In the end, the art is very much its own interpretation of my story. I know that this is far from the last article I will be writing about my son’s longboarding career; after all, he is only fifteen, and has many roads yet to ride.
