I had an epiphany today about my father Mr. William Findley. A lot of my strength comes directly from him. The hazing he gave me in my adolescence; which was hell; wounded me deeply, but as a result, it also hardened my interior
emotional life in that I have an amazing sense of self-possession, resiliency, and power.
I fear no man.
After what my father put me through, how could I?
He trained and hardened me for the world of men (Black and White).
Perhaps this was his greatest gift to me, the forming of my character, my being.
I love you forever.
You were quite a man.
Your son Stephen.
