Moment No. 2 — Cathy, railway tracks, and Al Green

The first note of a love anthem sounded, mere seconds before the front tires of my father’s red Plymouth hit the railway  tracks on 107 Ave. and 107 St. in Edmonton in 1972 — April, the fourth month.

At 13, in Grade 7,  and my very first love — Cathy — moved to another school. I was heartbroken.

But now. some 47 years later, we are the best of friends … proving the song I heard, crossing the railway tracks, would, simply. last a lifetime.
