#Seeing Gould

I went with Sandra to some gathering and chatted with women there. As always, I talked about Gould. One of them said something that quite surprised me.

“You’re talking about Mr Gould? He lives in the same apartment building as I!
“Really? Where?”
“St. Clair Avenue 110.”

Before the lessons next evening, I went to St. Clair Avenue.
I arrived to the apartment building from the west side. Just when I arrived, a big car suddenly appeared from a bit eastern to the building and came out on the south. The car stopped to let other cars pass in order to merge into the street traffic. The driver was dressed completely in black.

Oh, my god, It’s Gould!
I want to run up to his car and open the door. However, I’m not even able to lift my hand and wave at him. I just watch after the car that is changing direction and disappearing down the Avenue Road, chanting the gratitude in my heart over and over again like sutra, “Thank you so much for playing Beethoven Concerto for us!”

The Gould I saw seemed to be in a bad temper and was astonishingly different from the person I know from pictures. Anyone who saw Gould in this period said, “He grew shockingly thin and haggard-looking.” His body must have reached its physical limits.
All Gould’s portraits from his later years wear the shadow of death. To those who knew Gould while he was young and beautiful, his looks, changed due to his dependence on medicines, were “strange yet mysterious” and gave away an odd feeling.

This was my only real meting with Gould. Nine months later he died of a stroke as if he were acting out “death”. That is when my communication with his spirit started. For me, Gould’s death was a deciding meeting, the beginning of our conversation.

When I got home that night I immediately called Francis from Southwood Drive to tell her the exciting news.
“I saw Gould!”
“Where?”
“He was driving on Saint Clair Avenue!”
“What was he driving?”
“A big, black car.”
“Lincoln Continental. Yeah, that was definitely him!” Francis confirmed to me.
