Father's Day Surprise

Mark, a young man in his twenties, takes a trip to the mountains to finally learn what he can about his father, who had abandoned the family long ago and has since died. It's not a task he relishes, but he feels that it's something that he must do. While the search to learn about his father yields little, the trip is hardly a waste. He and his new acquaintance both get a Father's Day surprise.What happens when an extraordinary circumstance completely changes the life of an ordinary man? Brian Seymour becomes quite interested in the crows in his home town of Ottawa, Canada, and soon learns that they are even more interested in him. As he learns more about just what incredibly intelligent creatures crows actually are, he begins to pay more and more attention to them. On one fantastic morning he discovers that they understand him, much more than he will ever understand them. He must then calmly decide what he must do with this new awesome power that he has unleashed, or more accurately, that has been unleashed on him. In this entertaining, uplifting story, you will learn many surprising facts about one of the smartest creatures on our planet, that almost everyone sees almost every day, yet pays very little attention to. After reading this I promise you will pay much more attention to them from then on. My Name Is is a fantasy short story that is mostly semi-autobiographical, right up until the supernatural takes over.
