For this Plan B thesis, I wrote a collection of flash nonfiction pieces accompanied by a critical introduction. The collection weaves through three of my relationships, involving my father, my sons, and God, and centers on the rituals that essentially bind fathers and sons. We sometimes view ritual as an ideal, which causes us to either look back upon them longingly or frustrated when we fall short of the ideal. I explore the role ritual has played in my life as a son to God and my father and the role it now plays for me as a father to my children.
