Earlier in the month, I wrote about my old friend Stephen Badhwar, and idly wondered where life had taken him.
Today I decided to get to the bottom of things, and so with the help of Google, and a kind woman named Heather in Atlin, BC who gave me Stephen’s home telephone number, I just simply rang him up.
“Hello,” I said, “is Stephen there?”
“Peter Rukavina!,” said Stephen.
That’s why we need old friends, to remember the sound of our voice.
Stephen, I’m happy to report, is alive and well and living in Atlin as a writer / teacher / parole officer / ranger / actor / storyteller / gadabout. He sounds content, which is about all one can ask for.
The telephone… such an amazing invention.
