I've been looking at the relationship I have with my birth father and how I perceive his identity.
As I was looking at the picture I have of him I begun to realise that I do not have a connection with the man in the photo. I had very little memories of him. Then one came back to me. I remembered always receiving a packet of Rolo's when I saw him (which I don't think was often). Suddenly the blank space was filled with Rolo's.
This is the second experiment with using the role packet.
I have covered up his Identity with the role packet as a representation that this is how I remember him. As opposed to a blank space and lost memory, he does actually have quite a fond memory. As simple as it is.
