Here's the little film of my story of loss that appeared on the TTC video monitors in subway stations during the month of October, part of a video installation by LabSpace Studio, entitled The Things We Lose. Due to the brevity of the film clip, the accompanying text makes it seem as though Ivaan had died just three days after reconnecting with the young woman in the photo. In fact, he lived for six more years, during which time he suffered three additional strokes. Yet he still managed to remind me regularly of the importance of finding the young woman playing the flute.
We live in hope.
