How This Novel Inspired This One-of-a-Kind NFT

  • I Never Played Catch With My Father-NFT
    NFT media never-before-shared on social media or sold.
     
    In honor of my late father – the best father, ever.
     
    This one-of-a-kind work, featuring officially copyright material, is inspired by the famous novel, of the same name, by Pulitzer-nominated author, and former Oprah guest author Gene Cartwright.
     
    On January 29, 1996 at 4:45 pm, 
     
    in the front yard of my childhood home in Texas, I played catch with my father for the first and last time.
     
    While he was not a sports-minded father, he was unequaled, in all other respects .
    Before his passing I told him: “If I had been given a chance to choose a father, I would have chosen you.” That brought tears to his eyes for only the second time I ever saw.
     
    On December 26 1996,
     
    my dad lost his valiant battle fight against lung cancer. This “Playing Catch” Collection – the beginning of many works to come – symbolizes a magical day of playing catch that, for me, will never end.
     
    And so, that day in 1996 (which was videotaped) altered my real-life experience with my father, and made the book’s title no longer apply to me.
     
    National Book Tour
     
    The novel led to a 1997 Oprah Show invitation, a multi-year national book tour, national media
    coverage, and focused attention on the vital importance of parent-child relationships.
     
    What the work depicts
     
    This work depicts a young boy of a past era, sitting alone at sunset engrossed in a story yet to be written, visualizing a future where he would forever share his childhood passion with a father now gone.
