The Epiphany

The Epiphany

An hour later I walked in and found my Dad sitting at his table furiously writing. 

"Hi," I said. 

"I've had an epiphany!" he replied.

My heart sank - he was textbook #manic. His hands and voice were shaking and he was overjoyed to tell me about the religious awakening he had had overnight. 

The saddest thing about a #manicepisode is that the person having it feels fantastic. With a spark in his eyes, my dad told me how he felt the best that he had felt in five years. 

"Take my picture," he said. "I want to remember today."
