my father got fired
deleted from the company he dedicated his time to for twenty plus years of service

he’s fifty-something
frustrated feelings of failure and uselessness

to find peace with the situation and to restore his self-esteem
he decides to take a self-imposed leave of absence

away from home family friends and business relations
out of the picture for a while

two months bali in seclusion to think matters over
to put things into perspective
a time to get inspired and find new energy

out of the picture sketches the months that he was away searching for answers
