#Mr Robert

I descended a slope on my way home.
Suddenly, as if some great force grabbed me by the shoulders, turned me northward and pushed me towards Gould’s childhood house saying, “Come on now, go there.” I broke into run under that force, getting close to the house. Next to the sidewall I caught a woman who was going in and out from the front yard.

“I am looking for 32 Southwood Drive…”
“This is the place…”

“Is this the house of Glenn Gould?”
“He used to live here long time ago, but his father sold this house to my son.”

“I am a Gould’s fan. I came to Toronto three weeks ago. I would like to meet him, if that is possible. I would love to play the piano with him.”
“My son knows Gould’s father. He’s in the backyard now. Why don’t you go and talk to him.”

I could hear loud sounds coming from the backyard.
Two men were making a wooden terrace.
There was a boy sitting next to them, clinging to his pacifier.
 
After introducing myself, I told them what I wanted.
“Give me your address and phone number here in Toronto. I will tell Gould’s father about your request.”

Mr Robert wrote his name and phone number on a piece of paper and passed it to me.
“Gould has four residences.
One is an apartment in St. Clair Avenue.
The other one is a studio at Inn On the Park in Eglinton East.
The third is a house up on Bayview Avenue.
And, I can’t remember where the fourth one is.
When his fans appear, weather they find him or not, he runs off to another residence because he wants to avoid them.
I think meeting him is really difficult.
It seems it is extra hard since his father remarried last year because Gould doesn’t approve of that new marriage.
I am not sure if contacting him through his father will be successful.
Nevertheless, you seem to be a really courageous person.
We have nice weather. I hope you will enjoy Toronto. See you!”

I am so excited I almost tumble down the slope toward the lakeside.
My heart expands wide like the glittering lake before me.
The lake reflects the blue of the early summer and is deep blue everywhere.
I finally did it! Maybe I’ll get a chance to talk to Gould’s father. I’ve made the first step.
I spent almost half a day around the lake watching people and dogs.
I had fruits and sweets for luncheon desert.
I could imagine Gould taking walks on this lakeshore once upon a time.
