our journey on earth then becomes finding our other half. ‘With Eyes
Closed’ is about my parents, the two halves that truly found each other
and became whole. For the fifty years that they were married, he would
wake her up with breakfast every morning. Those two did everything
together. In fact, they only spent fourteen nights apart during their
marriage. Even when my dad spent weeks on end at the hospital after he
was diagnosed with cancer, my mom was there by his side, holding his
hand…until the very end.”
