"You cannot change the wind, but you can adjust your sails." A fictional biography showing the difficulties surrounding family and social relationships in small-town Eastern Canada when one's in-built direction is homosexual. "Although I felt relieved that things were now in the open, it took both my mother and I a bit of time before we were comfortable being around each other ... she may not have understood that it wasn't a choice I was making but rather an acceptance of what I couldn't change." Uneasy that something could happen to his parents on their trip to Europe, Richard decides to return home to northern New Brunswick with his friend Norman. During the twelve-hour odyssey, they reminisce about growing up in small-town, catholic Dalhousie, and share thoughts on their respective coming-out stories and their relation-ships with their mothers. Richard's easy life in Ottawa changes when Norman's pre-mon-ition comes true. Charles Seems was born in Dalhousie, New Brunswick, Canada and has travelled the world. Charles is a teacher, writer, human resources manager and interior designer. He lives in Ottawa with his spouse Robert.
