So today I got an email from my brother, who mentioned that he had recently received a phone call from my dad, who had rung up my brother to tell him that he was at the moment calling from amidst the waters of the beaches of Manzanillo.

And as I pictured this, my dad's pale rounded torso poking out from within the thigh-high waves, green-checkered swim trunks half submerged in the salted water, probably still wearing his glasses and having forgotten to take off his watch, shielding his eyes from the sun with one hand while surveying the landscape, and carefully holding the cell phone as high above the water as possible with the other, turning first left and then round right to avoid the splashes from the nearby noisy children, a smile broke in my face as I thought: "That is so characteristically dad."

este me gust'o! pap'a Gianni.
