At the age of 15 Father appears
for a moment in my dream.
He is silent. What does it mean?
He spent his life worrying about
never having enough money.
I remember warning him
when I was 15 years old:
You better plan for your old age
since I have chosen a non-profit
career path and will never earn
more than a modest income.
Perhaps he appears as a warning for me
to not run out of money in my twilight years.
