He is a tall, 6’4”, muscular man with curly brown hair showing signs of premature grey. His clear blue-grey eyes are shaded by long curly lashes and can fix you with a penetrating stare that will knock your socks off if you are female. His hands are large but beautifully shaped, long solid fingers with a hint of the artistic. He normally writes with his left hand but he has task specific abilities with each. Still young at 31, he realizes he’s getting a bit old to be knocking around as a bartender without a clear plan for the future. He is, however, insecure about his long term prospects. An underlying sense of “I’m not good enough” lurks in his brain.

He has a son; a healthy, happy, smart, interested nine year old who loves his father and can’t wait to see him each weekend they are together. His father is everything to the boy. It doesn’t matter he is a bartender without a savings account. He sees an athletic man who loves to exercise, lift weights, fly kites, run along the beach, work on his classic Porsche.

Patrick Dylan Edwards will teach his son everything he can about becoming a thoughtful, well-rounded, inquisitive person.

“Knowledge is power,” he says often.

“Knowledge is power,” repeats the boy.


Patrick is a dreamer. His lovely eyes see things differently from others. For him, the glass is always half full. Other people are kind and well-meaning. Women are all beautiful. They fascinate him with their glossy hair, scented perfumes, polished toes, swan like necks. He is a photographer on the side, taking many many photos. Working in a popular San Diego restaurant as bar manager is a great opportunity to observe. Time off he shoots. He and his son go for long drives in the desert. He teaches his son how to drive a stick. He pretends he’s a race car driver. His son cannot wait to be sixteen.

He has an undeniable look of sadness. It appears when he contemplates a woman or girl as she tries her best to grab his attention behind the bar or on the beach. He knows they want to be with him but it does not fill him with joy, excitement or even the satisfaction of conquest. He is not vain about his looks. He knows he is handsome. He knows it doesn’t matter.

He has loved. He has lost. That matters.
