One year ago today, at 4:04am my dad lost his fight with cancer. The fractal above is my tribute to and remembrance of my father. My dad was a marine, which explains why I choose a military theme. In the fighter pilot lexicon to “check-six” is to look behind for approaching bogeys. In this image the pilot has no chance against the two enemy fighters on his tail. I yelled check-six to my father many times. He never heard until it was too late. Dad, if you are reading this, I love you.
