Lately I have been talking to my alleged biological father. I say “alleged” because I have yet to confirm whether or not he is my father. Don’t get all Maury on me now! Nonetheless I am very curious after talking with him whether or not he is my father. Truth be told, I want him to be. We have so much in common. He is an artist though he is a counselor by profession. He loves to paint, he shuns realism and prefers impressionistic and abstract art, and similarly I ADORE abstract art and impressionism influenced my art greatly. Today in conversation he mentioned Jackson Pollock who is my hero in painting. I love the way Pollock painted his canvases and I actually paint my abstract art the same way. It is ironic how much we have in common.
In about two weeks we are going to get a DNA test to see if he is my father. If he turns out not to be my father, I will be disappointed. I enjoy talking to him, I even look forward to it. If the DNA test shows that he is not my father this would be the end of the father-seeking road for me. I don’t have any other leads. He is my only lead, the only name I even know to look up so it would I would be at a dead end if he is not.
