(2) The two photos above are of the last nice day I had with my papa. Even though he was sick, he drove us down to Nonsuch Park, and we walked amongst the flowers. I had him wear my hat, and I took the second photo because I thought he looked like a Bond villain. We had a good laugh about that. So I will continue to celebrate the miracle of my life in all the hilarity and tragedy that it can offer, just like my papa did, and I will think of him, how UNBELIEVABLY LUCKY I was to have him in my life, every time I fix myself a stiff gin and tonic after a long red eye flight. If you’re somewhere now, have a drink for me. For now all I can say is thank you. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. I’ll miss you forever you crazy bastard. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Today I mourn the loss of my grandfather Alan. Alan was my guiding light, my drinking buddy, my personal comedian, and most importantly my best friend. These three moments mean so much to me. The first is my papa and I on vacation. Although he lived far away in England we always made sure to go away somewhere warm together, and these trips are among my favourite moments in my life. It’s profoundly moving that after so long away from one another, we always slipped right back into our old habits, and it felt like no time had been lost. The second is a video of my brother jack and I at most probably our drunkest (not my papa though. You couldn’t get him drunk if you tried!). My papa always fixed us a gin and tonic the moment we got to England, and he never had an empty stock of wine, beer, and liquor. The man’s life was a continual celebration, and this is us at our happiest. He loved to dance, and would “jive” to any song, no matter how un-“jive”-able. He would put his handbag down on a chair and say “HERE WE GO BABY!” and start gyrating like a madman. Which he was. A madman. The last frame is one of my happiest moments on stage. My papa was always so proud of my accomplishments, and always asked first and foremost when my next release was, how my touring was going, and what was in store me next. This was always followed by “and how much money did you make on that?” You can’t blame a Jewish accountant for being diligent ;) This frame is a shotty screenshot, but it is one of the few times my papa was able to see me play, and see how many wonderful fans I had the pleasure to play for. You can watch the video on YouTube under “Scott Helman Ripple Effect CBC Music Festival.” The last thing I said to my papa was “I Love You.” This is only a fraction of the truth. In reality, I not only loved him but learned from him, bickered with him, celebrated with him, mourned with him, laughed with him and cherished him in more ways than I can dispel in one little post on Instagram.
